DirecTV (DTV) has begun notifying its nearly 20M subscribers it will be raising rates as of Feb. 9; rates for most packages will rise by $3-$5/month, and DVR rates will increase by $1-$8/month. As one might expect, the satellite TV provider attributes the hikes to rising content costs and the "significant investments" it's making. Consider this another talking point for cord-cutters.
