The internet TV service has bolstered its content with new channels.
Sling TV has officially launched several new content options. AMC, IFC, EPIX, and Sundance TV are all among the new offerings.
"Since day one, we promised to develop a pay-TV service that a new generation wants," said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. "Our customers are asking for access to additional popular shows and movies, which is why we are offering AMC, IFC and the 'Hollywood Extra' add-on pack. We are committed to meeting the needs of our consumers and will continue enhancing the Sling TV experience with even more programming options at an affordable price."
Live AMC and IFC channels are now part of the "Best of Live TV" $20 core package, offering customers new episodes of popular shows like 'The Walking Dead,' 'Better Call Saul,' and 'Portlandia.' Currently, the core package also includes previously available channels like ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, ABC Family, CNN, El Rey, and Galavision.
In addition, Sling TV is also now offering a new "Hollywood Extra" pack for an additional $5 per month. The pack includes EPIX, EPIX2, EPIX3, EPIX Drive-In and SundanceTV. Only live content is being offered from AMC, IFC, and SundanceTV at the moment, but on-demand options along with an additional 2,000 movie and entertainment titles from EPIX will be added soon. Finally, details about the upcoming arrival of BBC America, BBC World News and WE tv channels will be revealed in the coming weeks.
The Sling TV platform is now available on Roku players, Roku TVs, the Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, PCs, Macs, and Android and iOS tablets and smartphones. Support for more devices is expected in the near future.
