Dish Network’s Sling TV is undoubtedly one of the best streaming services in the country. This online steaming platform has been adding new channels to their offerings at a fairly steady rate since its launch in 2015. Sling TV recently announced that they will be adding the movie channel, Fandor, and a few new Starz channels to their lineup soon.
Apparently, the addition of these channels is to target film lovers. Sling TV had earlier added Starz Encore and Starz to their offerings as premium add-on channels. Now more channels from Starz network will be available to Sling TV customers.
Starz Kids & Family offers family friendly movies such as “Annie” and “The Good Dinosaur”, while Starz Edge offers an incredible collection of adventure, drama, and action films such as “The 5th Wave” and “I am Wrath”. In addition to that, this channel also airs some exciting original series.
Another addition to the Sling TV, Starz Comedy, is an absolute treat for those who love comedy films. This channel also offers some of their own original series and hilarious comedy movies including “Me, Myself and Irene” and “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story”.
The other Starz channel, Starz West, offers the pacific feed of Starz to viewers from all over the world. Although Sling is adding these channels to its lineup, Dish Network has promised that the Starz premium add-on will keep its original price of $9 a month.
The Starz channels are mainly focused in bringing mainstream movies to their viewers, whereas Fandor concentrates more on documentaries such as “The Decline of the Western Civilization II: The Metal Years” and on independent movies like “The Animal Project”. In addition to that, Fandor also offers a number of favorite films from Sundance, Cannes, and SXSW film festival.
However, Dish Network will not be offering this channel as a standalone add-on. This channel will be a part of the Hollywood Extra add-on pack, which is available to Sling TV customers at just $5 per month. Sling TV customers, who have subscribed to the Hollywood Extra add on pack, will receive five free movies due to the addition of Fandor.
These free movies can be found in Sling TV app’s movies section under the name, “Free Movies from Fandor.” Dish Network hopes that the addition of these new channels will attract more customers to their online streaming platform.
