The sling TV channel package by the name of Sling Orange containing ESPN, DISNEY, AMC, COMEDY CENTRAL, and over 25 other networks is getting $5 costlier then earlier. For new customers and for existing customers from the next upcoming month, the plan will cost $25 per month. Sling TV was launched in 2015, this had kicked off the internet TV platform then. Now, with the change in taste and technology, the company has come up with 2 other new packages namely Sling Blue and Sling other. The price of all the packages is almost at parity but with the difference in channels. You can watch Fox, NBC and Non-Disney channels in Sling Blue. If you purchase both packages together, then it will cost $40 a month.
Sling TV president in his press conference with the news agency said the programming fees always go in one direction that is upward side. This is what they have done. This is rather justified as the cable TV companies and content providers are passing on the same to the customers. Sling Blue channel activation has increased from last few months as compared to original line up.
Apart from this, Sling TV also revealed that they are now offering different types of content to the users without requiring any base subscription.
