Sling TV review: How does Dish Network’s service compare to cable and satellite?
Article from ConsumerReports.org:

Less than three weeks after Sling TV was announced and a few weeks before public availability, we got an invitation to try out Dish Network’s new $ 20-per-month, Internet-based streaming-TV service. We’ve been using it in our labs and in a home environment for around a week. Here are our first impressions.

What do you get for $ 20 per month?

The basic Sling TV package has 12 channels, including Cartoon Network, CNN, Disney Channel, ESPN and ESPN2, Food Network, TBS, and TNT—a cleverly designed list of some of the most popular basic-cable channels.

We tried the full suite of channels, which includes Sling TV’s two $ 5-per-month add-ons: Kids Extra (Baby TV, Boomerang Disney Junior, Disney XD, and Duck TV) and News & Info Extra (Bloomberg, Cooking Channel, DIY, and HLN).

This $ 30-a-month package is incredibly tempting for anyone who’s ever wondered why they’re paying $ 50 and up (plus a monthly fee for a cable box) to get hundreds of channels when they watch only a few regularly. Sling TV is the closest service yet to à-la-carte cable television.
