ENGLEWOOD, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 and
the ability to stream on up to three devices simultaneously in or
outside the home. 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.

“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.”

Channel lineup

The new “Best of Live TV” multi-stream service includes content from FOX
Broadcasting, FOX Sports, FX, National Geographic and other popular
networks from AMC, A&E, Turner, Scripps and Univision.

Similar to Sling TV’s single-stream service, beta multi-stream customers
can tailor their experience by adding “Extras,” including “Hollywood
Extra,” “Lifestyle Extra,” “World News Extra,” HBO and Cinemax. For a
full list of beta multi-stream channel options, visit www.sling.com.

Sling TV’s existing single-stream Best of Live TV service, which
includes content from Disney and ESPN Networks, is unchanged with the
introduction of this new multi-stream service. For a complete comparison
