Sling TV has added two channels to its lineup of a la carte channels: Hallmark Movies Now and The Country Channel.
The Hallmark Movies Now channel, which can now be purchased for $6 a month with or without a base package, includes hundreds of hours of commercial-free movies that are not available on the Hallmark Channel, or other Hallmark-branded channels.
The Country Channel, which can now be bought for $3 a month with or without a base plan, offers country music videos, live performances and lifestyle programming targeted to country music fans.
In addition to the two new a la carte channels, Sling is making Starz and Cinemoi standalone channels (no base package required) for $9 a month and $3 a month respectively. Other a la carte channels on Sling include Showtime, NBA League Pass, CuriosityStream, Here TV and Docurama.
Sling has two base packages: Blue and Orange. The Blue package features more than 40 channels including live network feeds in select markets as well as several Fox channels. Sling’s Orange plan includes ESPN and more than 30 cable networks. Both plans normally cost $25 a month, but Sling is now offering the first three months of each package for $15 a month.
Finally, Sling has announced that its service now works on the Microsoft Edge browser.
