Sling TV Adds New Package With Both Disney and FOX Properties

Sling TV Adds New Package With Both Disney and FOX Properties

Sling TV just made some big changes. The OTT skinny bundle service has debuted a new streaming package that includes all the channels from its two existing packages. That means that Sling TV is finally putting Disney-owned properties like Disney Channel, Freeform, and ESPN in the same package as properties from FOX and other companies. Previously, viewers had to choose between ESPN and FS1 and between Disney Channel and Nick Jr., among others.

Sling TV has also rebranded its channel packages. “Best of Live TV” is now “Sling Orange.” “Best of Live TV – Multi-Stream” is now “Sling Blue.” And the new hybrid package is called “Orange + Blue.” The new branding is much simpler than the old (there aren’t two “Best of Live TV” packages anymore) and references Sling TV’s corporate color scheme of burnt orange and robin’s egg blue.

Arriving with the new package and branding are new channels. Most notably, Sling TV has added NBC properties like NBCSN and MSNBC. Other new channels include BBC America and USA. Most of the new channels have slotted into Sling TV’s recently renamed Sling Blue package (and, by extension, Orange + Blue). BBC America is included in all three packages.

  1. I will say that with this package their price is now higher than Vue and if add the necessary add-ons to make it close to equal to Vue you are at $55 a month, without a DVR.

    For $40 I should get to swap out some of the duplicate channels and get a DVR too.

  2. Isn’t orange the color of an alert? Little did I know I’ve been subscribing to Sling Orange for the past couple of months. I may have to switch to Blue in August for the Olympics, staged in aquatic environments the color of Orange and Blue mixed together.

    Same old story: Orange, Blue, or Orange and Blue, you’re still paying for channels you’ll never use. Which means lots of green for the content providers.
