Sling TV's $20 per month price point and $5 more per month genre-based "Extras" have made it a go-to choice for the growing number of households who do not subscribe to traditional pay-TV services.
"Consumers reject the traditional pay-TV model for more reasons than just saving money, it's also about having choices and not being locked into exorbitant contracts," said Coty Youtsey, CEO of Channel Master. "Sling TV's business model, in addition to its top-rated programming options, makes it a perfect fit for our customers and we're very excited to launch the service today."
