Sling says MLB Network will be automatically added to each subscriber’s Home Screen and channel guide starting Friday. After the preview is over, subscribers can continue to watch the MLB Network by subscribing to the streamer’s Sports Extra plan for $11 a month. The add-on package also includes ESPN News, the Tennis Channel, among other sports networks.

Sling TV is now selling its base packages (Blue or Orange) for just $15 for the first month. The streamer previously was offering the first month for $20.

The $15 promotional price, which is available to new subscribers, means the first month would be $25 off the regular price of $40 a month. (Note: The regular price of $40 a month will be charged after the first month unless you cancel prior to the end of the term.)

Sling TV is also including a free month of its Entertainment Extra add-on plan with the base package. Entertainment Extra, which normally costs $6 a month, features 10 channels including the Paramount Network, truTV, MTV, TV Land and CMT, among others.
