The Science Channel is now available in Sling’s News Extra add-on plan, which also costs an extra $5 a month, while Discovery en Espanol and Discovery Familia have been added to the ‘Best of Spanish TV’ base and add-on extras.

Sling’s Orange plan starts at $25-a-month and includes ESPN and roughly 30 cable networks. The Blue package costs $25-a-month, and includes more than 40 channels including live network feeds in select markets as well as several Fox channels. You can have both plans for a combined $40 a month.

The live streamer said the cost of both plans will stay the same despite the addition of the Discovery channels.
