The TV licence fee will rise by £3, the BBC has announced.
From April this year, the annual fee will rise from £154.50 to £157.50.
It comes days after the BBC unveiled huge job cuts at the public service broadcaster, with 450 redundancies feared.
The move is part of a sweeping £80m in cuts to BBC News, with Victoria Derbyshire's morning TV show among the casualties.
TV viewers who don't pay their licence fee are set to avoid court this year, as Boris Johnson looks set to decriminalise non-payment.
The TV licence fee is set by the government, which in 2016 announced it would rise in line with inflation for five years from April 2017.
According to the broadcaster, the new cost is equal to £3.02 a household per week — or £13.13 a month.
This latest price change will not currently affect over-75s and their free TV licence.
Changes to the current system, which sees elderly viewers in the age bracket get a licence for free, are not set to come in until June.
The cost of a black and white licence will also rise from £52 to £53.
He said that by making the licence option, "you would lose some people, but at the same time you'd up the price a bit".
The former footballer - who is stepping down from presenting the Premier League highlights show - added that the licence fee "is the price of a cup of coffee a week at the moment.
"If you put it up you could help older people or those who can't afford it."
In December, Boris Johnson said he was considering reviewing the licence fee, as one of the BBC's biggest critics, John Whittingdale, was rumoured for a Cabinet appointment.
The PM said he was "certainly considering" scrapping the BBC fee in the runup to the General Election as he was caught up in a scandal over ducking an interview with Andrew Neil.
Questioning whether the BBC's current funding model "still makes sense," Johnson said at the time: "I think that the system of funding what is effectively a general tax, isn't it, everybody has a TV, it bears reflection — let me put it that way."
