    Can’t say that I can ever recall hearing about this channel before, but I suppose there could be an audience out there that enjoys watching it, and I hope that it’s a decent channel.

    However, I did have a thought. I sort of hope that Sling doesn’t start adding a bunch of filler channels that a vast majority of folks may not watch. I’d rather have 20 quality channels that everyone likes, than 200 low quality ones. Cable companies could be seen as an example bulking up on a ton of lower quality filler channels that may only appeal to an extremely small group of people, and then the next thing we know, the monthly price goes up because of having some sort of bragging rights with having 200 channels.

      That’s why this channel is part of the Heartland Extra add-on. If you want it, you will have to pay for it, but others won’t be stuck subsidizing it for the ones that do want it.

    I have had one issue with Sling lately. Certain favorite channels disappear. I can go back in the menu and readd them but just wonder why they go off in the first place.

      I had a couple of months where it happened to me on Roku 2 fairly often. It was right after they updated their software to include the grid guide. It would also screw up my ability to resume a program that I was watching from the On Demand section. An update a few weeks ago seems to have fixed it.
