Sling TV Service Expands New Channel Offerings/’Hollywood’ Add-On

The Sling TV service adds AMC and IFC to their offerings plus a new “Hollywood Extra” add-on that includes four VOD-capable Epix movie channels (EPIX, EPIX2, EPIX3, EPIX Drive-In) and Sundance TV for an additional $5 a month.

As new additions of Sling TV’s “Best of Live TV” $20 core package, AMC (formerly American Movie Classics) features shows like The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul and Mad Men, premiering its final season this April 5. This AMC Networks partnership also includes programming rights for BBC America, BBC World News and WE tv.

IFC (formerly the Independent Film Channel) features shows like Portlandia.

The “Hollywood Extra” pack will include a replay feature that gives customers the ability to watch up to seven days of previously-aired content; no DVR required. New customers can add the “Hollywood Extra” pack during the sign-up process. Current Sling TV customers can add the pack by signing into their account on Sling.com.

Customers can already choose to tailor their entertainment experience with optional “Sports Extra,” “Kids Extra” and “News & Info Extra” add-on packs, each priced at $5 per month.
