Sling TV today added eight live Showtime channels for $10 a month, which also includes more than 2,000 On-demand titles.
The addition gives subscribers to the live streaming service access to the four major premium channels: HBO, Cinemax, Starz, and now Showtime. (Pictured: Emmy Rossum from Showtime’s Shameless.)
Sling TV, which says it’s the first live streaming service to offer all four, also offers the Epix premium channel.
The streamer says subscribers to either the Orange or Blue basic packages can order the four premium channels separately.
Sling offers two basic tier packages — Orange, which starts at $20-a-month and includes ESPN and roughly 30 cable networks; and Blue, which starts at $25-a-month, and includes more than 40 channels including live network feeds in select markets as well as several Fox channels.
The Net TV service today also unveiled a new add-on package called Heartland Extra, which offers six new channels including Family Net, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network, RFD-TV, PixL and Outdoor Channel for $5 a month.
