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.
