Intro to Sling TV

Since January of 2015, Sling TV’s “A la Carte” streaming TV service has steadily grown in popularity with cord-cutters. The service, which is owned by Dish Network, currently boasts nearly 1-million subscribers.


From a channel perspective, the service offers more flexibility than what is typical of both cable and streaming providers. Although channels can’t be added individually, the service allows you to pick and choose from a variety of add-on channel packs, which typically cost around $5 per month. In addition, Sling service requires a subscription to one of three base plans, which range in price from $20-$45 per month and include many of America’s most watch “cable” channels.
