Sky packages go up again

Five of Sky's six TV bundles are going up in price come June, with Sky suggesting the average bill will increase by "less than £3 per month". I guess they had to fund that ridiculous inflated price they paid for Premiership rights somehow.
Sky's basic bundle, which includes 35 entertainment channels including Sky Atlantic and Sky Sports News, will remain the same price (£21) but all the other packages, including the Sky Sports and Sky Movies packages will increase in cost.
How this will impact Virgin Media subscribers to the Sky channels we will have to wait to see. The Sky Movies bundle will go up 50p/month to £17/month, Sky Sports will increase by £1 to £25.50/month, while the Sky Movies + Sky Sports bundle will be £34.50/month, up £1.50. The Variety bundle goes up £2 to £30/month, while the Family bundle jumps £3 to £36/month. The new prices come in to effect from June 1st.
(I think Sky still charges extra each month for HD too - it used to be a tenner but I think it's half that now.)
