When Sling TV, the streaming TV service available through the Fire TV, announces new channels, they’re usually added to the $20/mo. base package or one of their various add-on packages. In a strange move, Sling TV has revealed a new alternative $20/mo. base package that drops the ESPN and Disney channels included in the regular base package, but includes FOX (in select markets only), FX, Fox Sports, and the YES Network. If you don’t have kids and don’t watch sports, this may be a better base package for you to consider, as long as you’re in one of the regions that FOX is available in, which you can check by entering your address on Sling’s site.
