Back in November news broke that Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV would be shutting down its live TV network at the end of 2019. Instead, Blaze TV will focus on its video-on-demand subscription streaming service. Now Sling TV and DISH have dropped the network from their lineup as its contract was not renewed.
This all comes as Sling TV added FOX News and moved MSNBC to its Blue core package from its news add-on. Recently Sling TV has made several updates lately, including making limited DVR space available to all users. The DVR was automatically added to all accounts late last week. Sling has also been adding new channels to add-on packages, including Law & Crime, available in News Extra, and Pursuit and Great American Country, available in Heartland Extra.
There are even more current and upcoming changes for Sling TV’s add-on packages:
- FXM will launch into Sling Blue Hollywood Extra, which will also add FXX, including the linear feed.
- Nat Geo Wild is joining Sling Blue Heartland Extra, including the linear feed.
- Sling Orange recently launched Longhorn Network and ACC Network to the service’s Sports Extra.
Some add-on packages will also see price changes:
- Sports Extra is now $15 per month with a subscription to both Sling Orange and Sling Blue. If you’re subscribed to only Sling Orange or Sling Blue alone, the price of the add-on will remain $10.
- The 4 Extras Deal is now $12 per month.
Earlier this month, the streaming service also added DVR support for ESPN channels and removed DVR restrictions. This means you can now pause, rewind or fast-forward through any recorded programs, and even skip the commercials. Previously, recordings on select channels would automatically redirect viewers to on-demand content, if available.
