Happy Holidays from Sling TV! The value-oriented live TV streaming service is adding more news channels to one of its plans starting today. Sling TV subscribers, including existing customers, will also see an increase of $ 5 / month across the board as part of the change. Sling explains why:
Since we launched Sling TV in 2015, we are committed to providing the shows, movies, and sports you love at fair value, and we always offer skinny packs at a price you can't get with the cable.
Sling does not own the networks you use – we have to pay the programmers for their channels so that we can provide them to you, and the cost of programming has gone up. Unfortunately, we have to share these price increases with you, so that we can continue to offer you the same great experience you expect from Sling.
The rising prices mean that the Blue and Orange service plans will now start at $ 30 / month each. Sling divides channels by plans to make access more affordable. Subscribers who want all channels can subscribe to plans at a new price of $ 45 / month.
Sling TV adds that the price increase is the first for the Blue plan since its launch four years ago and the first for the Orange plan since June 2018. During this period, new channels and features, including Cloud DVR Free, have been added to the service.
For Sling Blue subscribers, new news channels include the live broadcast of CNN's FOX News, MSNBC and HNN. Learn more about new features, channels and price changes.
