Sling TV Announces The Sports Extra Package Line Up

Sling_Television_logo_white_webreadyGreat news for sports fans some of your favorite sports channels are coming to Sling TV!

From their FAQ:
Sports Extra (coming soon!) – Networks include: SEC Network, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, ESPN Buzzer Beater, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Bases Loaded, Univision Deportes, Universal Sports, and beIN Sports

No word currently on a price for the Sports Extra but you can expect it to be at least $5. The FAQ on Sling TV website would lead you to believe the Sports Package will be $5 but no official word yet.

So the question is would you pay $25 for almost all of ESPN, Watch ESPN, and 20 other channels?

    Nope. If it had MLB Network, I’d be all over it. I’d pay $5 a month JUST FOR THAT channel.

      Same, Joe. I would like to watch baseball IN and out of my market, including Baseball network. It would be nice to be able to see the pre and post game content too. Why can’t MLB figure that out when they badly need to retain and gain more fans?

    One of the whole reasons I want “live TV” is for sports.

    I’m an Ole Miss Rebels fan, so literally the whole reason I’m going the Sling TV route is for SEC Network.

    Literally the only reason.

    Ever since SEC Network came online, WatchESPN won’t let me watch anything anymore.

    Now I am also pleased to have the other stations that come with the base package.

    But literally, if there was no SEC Network, I wouldn’t even be looking at Sling TV.

    (I already have OTA FOX/NBC/CBS/ABC/PBS/ION).
    So now with Sling, I have everything I need to watch NFL and my Ole Miss Rebels.

    No, I’m a sports fan and I need more than just the SEC network and stats channels (Bases Loaded, Goal Line) I pay $10 right now for sports package on cable and I get NFL Network, Redzone, MLB Net, NHL Net, NBC Sports Net, CBS Sports Net, Golf Channel. I’d also like to see them add Big Ten Network. The only time I would consider adding Slings sports package is during college football season and during college hockey playoffs. Otherwise I never tune into ESPNU or SEC. Obviously Deportes does nothing for me and I’ve never heard of beIN Sports. I understand they are trying to reach as broad a subset of sports fan as possible.

    Amongst all the channels I get the only one I care about believe it or not is the Redzone channel. That channel broadcasts only Sunday afternoons during the football season but it’s a fantasy footballers wet dream. I do enjoy MLB Network and NFL Network as well.
