Today, we’re welcoming 12 new Viacom networks to Sling TV. These additions provide a wide variety of popular live and on-demand entertainment, with something for everyone in the family. New channels include Comedy Central, BET, Nick Jr., NickToons, TeenNick, MTV, Spike, MTV2, LOGO, CMT, TV Land and VH1.
