Today Sling TV announced a host of new options, free content, and a price change on their Orange plan.
Let’s look at everything they announced.
Sling TV’s Amazon Channels Competitor
Today Sling TV announced that they are launching the ability for non-Sling TV subscribers and current subscribers to manage subscriptions though the Sling TV app. Now you will be able to use Sling TV to subscribe to Showtime, NBA League Pass, Dove Channel, CuriosityStream, Up Faith & Family, and more even if you are not a Sling TV subscriber.
This allows you to manage multiple streaming services with one app, login, and billing information. No longer do you need multiple apps, passwords, and billing info to subscribe to the services you want.
The service is like Amazon Channels with the idea that you can manage multiple streaming services in one place; however, you won’t need a base subscription to Sling TV to subscribe to Showtime through the Sling TV app.
Monthly pricing for Sling TV’s new Amazon Channels-like services:
- Showtime: $10
- CuriosityStream: $6
- Stingray Karaoke: $7
- Dove Channel: $5
- Outside TV Features: $5
- Up Faith & Family: $5
- Pantaya: $6
- NBA League Pass: $28.99
*Sling TV said more services will be added soon.
This new update will roll out on Roku now with other devices to come soon.
Pay-Per-View Events & Movies
Sling TV also announced today that nonsubscribers will now be able to buy and stream pay-per-view events through the Sling TV app. Even if you do not have a subscription to Sling TV you will now be able to use Sling TV to watch your favorite UFC fight.
Sling TV Orange Price Change
After three years, Sling TV Orange is seeing a price change. Now, like Sling TV Blue, Sling TV Orange will cost $25 a month. The good news is the Sling TV Orange and Blue package will still only cost $40. All add-ons, including the bundle deal that gives you four add-ons for $10, remain the same price.
This new price will roll out to current subscribers in August 2018. With new subscribers.
