Today Sling TV is adding the highly anticipated AMC and IFC channels to it’s core $20 package. It is also releasing it’s Hollywood Extra package today. (The channels should be added by the time you read this post. If they are not live now, they will be live shortly.)
In addition to AMC and IFC, Sling TV’s “Best of Live TV” $20 core package delivers ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, ABC Family, Disney Channel, CNN, El Rey and Galavision; some of the most highly watched TV channels.
