Sling TV, Dish Network’s OTT pay TV service tailored for cord-cutters, said has expanded its core, $20 per month package, as well as its $5 per month “Hollywood Extra” pack.
Sling TV said it has added Polaris+, an exclusive linear offering for the OTT provider from Maker Studios that features long-form original programming on topics such as gaming, pop culture, comic and live-event programming. Polaris+ is an extension of Maker’s Polaris brand, which attracts more than 3 billion monthly views. Sling TV also offers the Maker channel in its baseline $20 per month package.
Sling TV has also added Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to its Hollywood Extra pack, which is available to subs for $5 per month on top of the core $20 package. Launched in March, Hollywood Extra also features the live feeds of EPIX, EPIX2, EPIX3, EPIX Drive-In, and Sundance TV.
Sling TV was launched nationally on February 9. Dish hasn’t revealed subscriber figures, but Re/code reported in June that it had about 250,000.
