At freeTVee, Sling TV has always been our favorite streaming package for TV channels. Why? Because it offers the most channels, most flexibility and give you the most opportunity to save money. When paired with a professionally mounted HD Antenna, Sling gives you the most channels at the best price.
In the past, we were unable to offer HD Antenna + Sling because many cord cutters need FOX News. In these cases we had to pair an antenna with a more expensive monthly service like YouTube TV or the soon to be defunct Sony PS Vue. These services cost more than $50 per month, whereas Sling Blue now includes both MSNBC, FOX News and CNN for just $30 per month.
FOX News and MSNBC are some of the most popular cable channels in the country and prior to these recent updates by Sling, cord cutters needed to pay a premium of an extra $20 a month just to get these channels.
And this is one of the things we love about Sling. Compared to Hulu Live, YouTube TV and many other live streaming services, Sling raises its rates when it has something of real value to add to your viewing experience. Since Sling is unburdened by retransmission fees for ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, it can always ensure lower rates for the most popular cable channels.
This Sling TV Blue plan will not only get you Fox News and MSNBC, you also get 10 hours of DVR for no extra cost, plus the DVR now works with every channel! In the past, the DVR worked for most channels but there were some restrictions. Now, it should work for all the channels available on Sling.
