After months of rumors CenturyLink today announced their live TV streaming service. CenturyLink Stream is a new service from CenturyLink that delivers instant access to live and on-demand sports, news and entertainment programming, including Latino and local channels. It’s available today on Roku players and Roku TVs in the U.S. The service will also work on phones and tablets along with Laptops and PCs. You can even buy a CenturyLink branded Android TV player that is special built for the service.
CenturyLink Stream offers two base packages – both include Cloud DVR for recording programs.
▪ The Ultimate package, priced at $45/month, features more than 45 channels, including local ABC NBC, Telemundo, UniMás s, and Univision stations in select marketsand national channels, including A&E, CNBC, Discovery Channel, Disney Channel, ESPN, Food Network, HGTV, HISTORY, MSNBC and USA. New and existing CenturyLink High-Speed Internet (HSI) customers are eligible to receive a $5 monthly discount off the $45 Ultimate package price.

Latino genre packages include Deportes and Peliculas with movies from México, Latin America and Hollywood.
