you will have to pay more to watch 10 channels that were previously ‘free’

Movistar Increases Prices Again

Telefónica’s Movistar Plus+ service is undergoing a restructuring of its most basic television package, resulting in a price hike for consumers. After having raised rates in January 2023, the company is now implementing a new fee increase.

Essential TV Package

The most basic Movistar package, which is required for those who wish to watch pay television, is known as Essential TV. It traditionally included 80 channels, 45 of which were premium channels. However, starting June 1, 2023, the package will only include 35 premium channels.

Channels Removed from Package

Ten channels that were previously available with the basic package are being removed, and consumers will have to pay an extra fee in order to continue watching them. The first channel to be taken away was AXN Movies, which was recently transformed.


Movistar is once again raising prices, this time by removing channels from its basic package and charging an extra fee for them. Consumers will have to pay more if they want to continue enjoying the same level of service.
