Sling TV Adds WeatherNation to Lineup

Regional and national weather information service WeatherNation TV said it has reached a carriage agreement with OTT service Sling TV.

WeatherNation, which offers continuous coverage of hyper-local, local, regional and national weather events is available on Sling TV’s News Extra package for $5 per month with a Sling Orange and/or Sling Blue subscription. All Sling Orange customers and Sling Blue customers will automatically receive a free preview of WeatherNation for six months.

"The addition of WeatherNation to our lineup further solidifies Sling TV's position as the premiere destination for OTT (over-the-top) content," said Sling TV director of content acquisition and strategy Ankit Bishnoi in a statement.

“We’re extremely pleased to add Sling TV to our growing list of distributors,” said WeatherNation president Michael Norton in a statement. “When OTT platforms like Sling can provide core programming that viewers love, at an industry-leading price, then everybody wins -- especially consumers.”
