Sling TV, the Internet-based cable alternative from Dish, will be changing it pricing structure to allow customers to add a more substantial upgrade to the intro packages that will bring its offering in line with some of the larger bundles in the streaming market. The new package is called Total TV. It allows Sling TV customers to add seven Extras packages plus 50 hours of Cloud DVR for $20. The new offer cuts the cost of the much larger package in half. For Sling Orange customers, the Total TV Deal adds nearly 80 channels to their Sling TV subscription. Customers can add the Total TV Deal to their subscription by visiting sling.com, selecting “My Account” and then “Change Subscription.”
Along with the increased basic channels offering Sling TV also announced that it would be increasing the price of its sports extra package. Since its inception in 2015 the sports upgrade has been a big bargain at $5.00. It included the entire family of ESPN programming as well as other sports news and content. Over time it has grown to include the MLB Network, NHL Network, NBA TV and more. Starting today, the price of Sports Extra for Sling Orange customers will be $10 per month. The price of Sports Extra will remain unchanged at $10 per month for Sling Blue customers, as well as customers who subscribe to both Sling Orange and Sling Blue services.
