Sling TV’s beta multi-stream service brings FOX broadcast, hit shows and local sports with three streams
It’s here! Today we launched a new beta multi-stream service, bringing you even more live and on-demand television with new channels from the Fox Networks Group like FOX local broadcast channels (in select markets), FOX Sports, FX and National Geographic on up to three devices simultaneously for $20 per month. In addition to Fox, the beta service’s base and “Extra” packages include content from AMC, A&E, HBO, Turner, Scripps, EPIX and Univision. Similar to our single-stream service, Sling TV’s beta multi-stream service allows you to stream must-watch entertainment on your favorite devices, wherever you are—at home, in the office or on the go.
Local FOX: Want to stay up to date on your local news? You’re in luck! In-market customers who subscribe to the beta multi-stream service can view live and on-demand local FOX broadcast content in the following markets: Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte N.C., Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Gainesville, Fla., Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pa., Phoenix, San Francisco, Tampa, Fla. and Washington D.C.
Even if you live outside the above markets or travel away from home, you’ll still have next-day access to FOX’s most popular shows on demand, including Empire, New Girl, Gotham and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
FOX Sports: Whether you’re a fan of baseball, basketball, football, soccer or hockey, Sling TV will keep you connected to the teams you love. With the beta multi-stream service, you’ll get access to FOX broadcast, regional and national sports included in the $20 per month base price.
In-market multi-stream subscribers can also watch NFL games on their local FOX station. UEFA soccer matches, NASCAR races and UFC fights are available on FS1.
FOX Regional Sports Networks (RSNs): Additionally, in-market basketball, baseball and hockey fans can catch NBA, MLB and NHL action through FOX’s RSNs. Whether you’re looking to witness the latest buzzer beater from the Oklahoma City Thunder or tuning into YES Network to see if the New York Yankees can return to greatness, Sling TV multi-stream delivers.
The multi-stream service provides local sports coverage through FOX RSNs in 16 markets. In-market multi-stream customers can watch their favorite sports on FOX Sports Ohio, FOX Sports West, FOX Sports Florida, FOX Sports South, FOX Sports Midwest, FOX Sports Arizona, Fox Sports Cincinnati, FOX Sports Detroit, FOX Sports North, FOX Sports Prime Ticket, FOX Sports San Diego, FOX Sports Southeast, FOX Sports Southwest, FOX Sports Sun, SportsTime Ohio, and YES Network.
Fox Networks: In addition to FOX local and sports content, you’ll also have nationwide access to content from FX and National Geographic through the multi-stream base package. That means you can binge on The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, The Americans, and Lockdown, to your heart’s content.
Best of Live TV Favorites: Similar to our single-stream service, the multi-stream service will include nationwide availability of A&E, Adult Swim, AMC, Bloomberg, Cartoon Network, CNN, El Rey, Flama, Food Network, Galavision, HGTV, History, IFC, Lifetime, Local NOW, Maker, Newsy, Polaris+, TBS, TNT, Travel Channel, truTV, UniMás, Univision and VICELAND.
Extras: Multi-stream service subscribers can add “Extras” to get even more content in three streams, including “Hollywood Extra,” “Lifestyle Extra” and “World News Extra” for $5 more per month each, HBO for $15 more per month and Cinemax for $10 more per month.
Three Streams: If you subscribe to our Best of Live TV beta multi-stream service, you can watch Sling TV on up to three devices at the same time in or out of your home. Any Extras added to your subscription will also be included in your three streams. With three streams, the beta multi-stream service is perfect for families, roommates or multi-television households.
