Sling TV is continuing to innovate in the cord cutting space of the market, coming off a certainly exciting CES 2017 for the brand. Today, Sling TV is getting more affordable as select channel bundles are getting their price cut in half. This discount on channel packages works for both Sling Blue and Sling Orange.
Sling TV is now offering Kids Extra, Lifestyle Plus Extra, Comedy Plus Extra and News Extra for only $10 per month extra. Before today each of these channel bundles cost an extra $20 per month. Not only is this more affordable, but you get a lot more channels for just $10. While this does not extend to all bundles, these are core packs that Sling TV customers consistently choose.
It also depends on the differences between Sling RV and DirecTV Now. For starters, Sling TV actually loads and is usable when you want to make use of your subscription. On the other hand, DirecTV Now has been struggling with uptime issues and general streaming bugs. Regarding the numbers of channels, you get more on Sling TV for a lower price.
