Sky has announced plans to raise prices for its sports and family entertainment bundles.

The sports package will go up by £1 to £47 a month and the family bundle will go up £3 to £36 a month.

The increases will take effect in June. Sky normally raises its prices in September, but analysts predicted that prices would go up sooner after Sky last month paid £4.1 billion for TV broadcast rights for Premier League football between 2016 and 2019.
