For years, the choice to cut the cord meant trading live TV for on-demand content from streaming services like Netflix. Then came live TV streaming services. Also called “skinny bundles,” these services changed the game by offering consumers live streams of familiar network television channels like AMC and ESPN. For the most part, we all have the same choices when it comes to skinny bundles. But customers with access to Southern Fibernet internet service have an additional option: SFN TV Now. SFN TV Now is an IPTV (online TV) service that offers a slimmed-down package of channels to customers within its select service area. Here's what you need to know about SFN TV Now channels, prices, cancellation policies, and more.

Before we go too much further, we need to note one important thing: SFN TV Now was briefly available nationwide, but that is no longer the case. After a short stint as a skinny bundle competitor to nationally available services like Sling TV, SFN TV Now pivoted to become exclusive to Southern Fibernet internet customers. SFN TV Now subscribers who were not SFN internet customers had their subscriptions cancelled, and SFN TV Now's website was stripped of information about prices, channels, and more.

On this page, we'll sketch out a rough picture of SFN TV Now based on the limited information available on SFN TV Now's website and on our SFN TV Now review, which we wrote back when the service was available nationwide. But if you're an Atlanta-area SFN customer with access to this service, your best bet for up-to-date information is a chat with SFN TV Now customer service.

What channels are on SFN TV Now?

SFN TV Now is a skinny bundle service, which means it offers live streams of familiar network television stations bundles into an affordable multichannel service. So that means that one of the most important questions to ask about SFN TV Now is: what channels are on SFN TV Now?

Curiously, that's not a question that SFN TV Now seems very eager to answer. The service's website is missing all of the channel logos that crowd competitors' sites, and the focus is on your potential eligibility for the service. Under “Channels and Pricing” header, SFN TV Now's website reads: “We have Internet and TV Bundles available among our network. If you are a internet customer, YOU have access to TV and you'll save money!”

That's it – just those words, no list of channels like the one that used to be available when SFN TV Now was a nationwide service.

SFN TV Now had plenty of channels available when we reviewed it – but that was in 2016, when the service was available nationwide

Eligibility wasn't an issue back when we reviewed SFN TV Now here at Cordcutting.com back in 2016, so it appears that the service has been contracted and restricted since we took a look. If you have access to SFN TV Now, drop us a line on our Contact page and let us know more about it!

For now, the only way to learn more about the channels available on SFN TV Now is to use the contact information on the service's website to get in touch with the SFN TV Now staff.

What devices can I use to watch SFN TV Now?

As of our 2016 SFN TV Now review, the service only worked with three platforms: Roku, Android, and iOS – and the Roku channel was a private (unsupported) channel. There's no sign of an official SFN TV Now channel in the Roku Channel Store as of this writing, and no indication that SFN TV Now has added any new platforms.

Mobile devices

  • Android
  • iOS

That's pretty disastrous platform support, and much worse than we've come to expect from skinny bundle services like Sling TV and DirecTV Now.

How much does SFN TV Now cost?

As with its platform support and channels, SFN TV Now's price is pretty unclear. The service's website insists that would-be customers call or email SFN TV Now to find out what options they have.

Back when we reviewed SFN TV Now in 2016, the service's pricing options ran from $10 per month (for local Atlanta, Georgia channels only) up to $48 per month. Of course, those numbers are likely to have changed in the years since.

Looking for discounts on SFN TV Now? Then you'll have to email or call them using the contact information listed on the service's website. As of this writing, that's the only way to figure out what's going on with SFN TV Now's pricing.

Of course, there are a lot of other options out there besides SFN TV Now. Keep an eye on our homepage and social media pages for the latest ways to save on skinny bundles like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.

Getting a SFN TV Now free trial

When we last wrote about SFN TV Now, the service offered a free trial. Now? It's anyone's guess. You'll have to contact SFN TV Now to learn more.

SFN TV contracts

As of our SFN TV Now review, the service was month-to-month and contract-free. As with other skinny bundles and subscription streaming services, the idea is that you'll pay in advance of each pay period: you're charged for a month of SFN TV Now, get to watch the service for a month, and then the service renews. You can cancel at any time, and your cancellation will take effect at the end of the current pay period. In other words, if you cancel in the middle of the month, you won't get any of that month's payment back, but will get to keep watching SFN TV Now until the end of the month – at which point your service will end with no further payments.

This may or may not be how the service still works. SFN TV Now is tied to Southern Fibernet internet now, so you'll definitely want to contact the folks behind the service before you assume that you can cancel in the way we described above. You'll find the contact information on SFN TV Now's website.

How to cancel SFN TV Now

Now that SFN TV Now is limited to Southern Fibernet customers, you'll have to cancel your service through Southern Fibernet. If you were signed up for SFN TV Now before it became exclusive to Southern Fibernet customers, your service should have been cancelled right away. For further help, use the contact information on SFN TV Now's website to reach out to SFN TV Now's customer service team.
