Dish Network’s Sling TV package debuts with addition of AMC
NEW YORK (AP) -- Dish Network's online television package, Sling TV, has made a formal debut Monday with additions to its previously announced lineup.
The $20-a-month package now comes with AMC, joining a lineup of 11 other channels that include ESPN, CNN and the Disney Channel. That means subscribers will be able to watch "Mad Men," "The Walking Dead" and the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul."
Sling TV also announced a $5-a-month add-on package for sports fans. It adds the SEC Network, Universal Sports and secondary ESPN channels such as ESPN Bases Loaded and ESPN Goal Line. The main package comes with ESPN and ESPN2 along with access to an on-demand WatchESPN app.
Before Monday's launch, Sling TV was available on an invitation basis.
