Sling TV continues it’s efforts to set itself apart from the rest of the live streaming tv pack. Today Sling announced that Epix Drive-In has been added to all Sling Blue and Orange base packages at no additional cost to subscribers:
Full of classic films and original documentaries, EPIX Drive-In is now available to anyone with a Sling Orange and/or Sling Blue subscription at no extra cost. Plan on spending your next movie marathon watching classics like “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and more on EPIX Drive-In. Plus, you can use our 8-day replay feature on this channel, which means you won’t ever miss out on that movie you wanted to watch days ago. Sling Orange customers and Sling Blue customers will automatically see EPIX Drive-In in their channel guide today.
In addition to adding Epix Drive-In to the base packages, Sling also announced that their Epix lineup would be leaving the Hollywood Extra add on and launching as a standalone add on. The REELZ channel will be replacing Epix in the Hollywood extra add on package.
Current subscribers to the Hollywood Extra add on will continue to receive Epix as long as they subscribe to Extra. Great move in my opinion by Sling to reward customer loyalty.
