"We've reviewed our channel line-up and pricing for 2014 and while a price rise is not the kind of news we like to pass on, we will be increasing the price of our Essentials Pack by $2 per month on 1 Feb 2014," Foxtel explained in a statement.
The company also announced that some of its channels would be moving packages or "getting a refresh". This includes up to eight additional channels added to Foxtel Go, including Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, MTV, ESPN, ESPN2 and Universal.
The last time Foxtel increased its prices by $2 per month was back in January. Now it's doing it again at the beginning of 2014. Time will tell whether customers get slugged with the same price hike in 2015. You can read more about the price increase and changes to channels at Foxtel's website.
