Re: Sling TV Just Raised their prices

Just checked Sling and Sling Orange and Blue are both $25 now, which is just bizarre, why offer Sling Orange at all if it's the same price as Sling Blue? Who would possibly get less channels for the same amount of money? At $40, YouTube TV is the better deal right now (imo of course).

Re: Sling TV Just Raised their prices

They’re not the same channels. Lots of overlap, sure. But the Orange has ESPN and Disney, which are expensive services. Blue has Fox Sports. For me, Orange would be the better choice because of ESPN.

That’s not to disagree that YouTube TV being a bargain. But so is a Hulu with Live TV. And DirecTV Now. And...

Ahh, that's right, it's been a while since i've used Sling and i was thinking they used the Directv Now model of just adding some channels every tier.

DirectTV Now also announced an across-the-board price increase.

Meet the new TV providers. Same as the old TV providers.
