A report on Reddit states a new streaming service called Sling will be released tomorrow. This service will be an online only option for Dish Network customers, and the primary draw to the service is the ESPN package. The cost will be $20 and will spare the client from having to pay for additional channels.
Sling will also carry ESPN2 the Turner channels. For an extra $5 you can purchase the children’s package that includes Disney Baby TV, Boomerang, Disney Junior, Disney XD and Duck TV. The “News & Info Extra”, which is also $5 throws in Bloomberg TV, Cooking Channel, DIY and CNN’s HLN.
As far as Sergio Andrade Gutierrez knows, there has not been a direct statement on the resolution that Sling is supposed to deliver, but it is reported to be as crisp as Hulu or Netflix.
