Five Ways To Personalize Your Sling TV Experience

Mar 17, 2015 by Glenn Eisen

We’re so excited to announce two new add-on packs: “Lifestyle Extra” and “World News Extra.” Each add-on pack is only $5 a month. They’re the perfect complement to our growing roster of $5 add-on packs, along with “Sports Extra,” “Hollywood Extra” and “Kids Extra.” That’s five ways to personalize your Sling TV experience.

We curated our add-on packs according to genre, so you can add only the type of programming that interests you. With Sling TV, you don’t have to select a grab bag of channels you don’t watch. With our add-on packs, you get the channels you actually want. Subscribe to as many or as few add-on packs as you like. The choice is yours.

So, what’s new? “Lifestyle Extra” includes truTV, Cooking Channel, DIY and WEtv, with A+E Networks’ FYI and LMN coming soon. Need a new cooking show to help you prep for an upcoming dinner party? You got it. How about a drama-filled miniseries to get your soap opera fix? Or even some reality TV so you can up your water cooler game the next day at work? Add on “Lifestyle Extra” and we’ve got you covered.

For all those news junkies out there, “World News Extra” brings you live updates from all over the world, including news from Bloomberg TV, HLN, Euro News, France 24, NDTV 24/7, News 18 and Russia Today, to keep you connected to events happening across the globe.

You might be wondering, “Where did the ‘News & Info Extra’ add-on pack go?” These two new add-on packs replace the “News & Info Extra,” so that we can offer more programming better tailored to your needs. But don’t worry: if you subscribed to “News & Info Extra,” we’ll give you both “Lifestyle Extra” and “World News Extra” for a total of just $5 per month.
