Sling TV Adds Cheddar News to its Free TV Lineup




, ,

Yesterday, Sling TV announced the launch of its Stay in and Sling initiative, bringing Americans free news and entertainment while we deal with the COVID-19 crisis. At that time, Sling made ABC News Live to the existing Sling free experience. This morning, Sling added Fox News to the lineup. Now, Cheddar News is being added as well.

“To stay informed in these uncertain times, Americans need access to news from reputable sources,” said Warren Schlichting, group president, Sling TV at the launch of Stay in and Sling. “With many Americans finding themselves staying at home, we have an opportunity to use our platform to help them deal with this rapidly evolving situation.”

Cheddar News is a fast-paced, young, non-partisan news network that broadcasts the latest coronavirus news as well as White House live updates. Tune in for daily coronavirus updates:

  • “Coronavirus: Your Questions Answers + Global Update” — 11 a.m. EST
