Today Sling TV launched a live beta multi-stream service for $20 per month, including live and on-demand content from Fox Networks Group brands that also include regional Fox Sports channels and the ability to stream on up to three devices simultaneously in or outside the home. (Note this is a separate plan not currently included in the current $20 plan.) In addition to Fox, the beta service’s base and “Extra” packages include content from the following multi-stream programmers: AMC, A&E, HBO, Turner, Scripps, EPIX and Univision. Available today, Sling TV’s new beta service can be purchased with or without the current Sling TV single-stream service at www.sling.com.
New Sling TV customers can trial the multi-stream service free for seven days and with no annual contract or long-term commitment at www.sling.com. Additionally, Sling TV’s single-stream service can be purchased with or without the new multi-stream service for $20 per month.
We reached out to Sling TV for comment about the future of this new plan and recived the following statement: “We launched the service in beta and expect to evolve it.” Also Sling TV’s CEO Roger Lynch said “We look forward to incorporating our customers’ feedback throughout the beta phase as we evolve the multi-stream service to include additional channels, features and functionality.”

“Since launch, our customers have asked for more channels and multiple streams. We believe our new multi-stream service, anchored by a strong lineup of Fox content, including top franchises like ‘Empire’ and ‘The Americans’ on FOX and FX, as well as access to Major League Baseball in 15 markets, including the New York Yankees, is the first step in answering their requests,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “We look forward to incorporating our customers’ feedback throughout the beta phase as we evolve the multi-stream service to include additional channels, features and functionality.”
