In what is likely to test its competitive strength in the crowded live television streaming market, Sling has hiked prices of its plans by $5, starting this month. As a result, Sling’s cheapest plan now costs $30 per month. At Sling’s debut in 2015, its cheapest plan cost $20 per month.
Sling TV president Warren Schlichting explained the price hike was a response to high programming costs. Dish has been disputing programming fees with its content providers recently. These disputes have resulted in certain channels going dark on Dish and Sling platforms as Dish fights to contain programming costs. Alongside the price hike, Sling has beefed up its programming with more channels, including Fox News.
