Sling TV Chief: “There Would Be Severe Bleeding” From AT&T-Time Warner Deal

One immediate threat would be that Sling, which markets its internet-delivered service as a contract-free, bargain-priced alternative to the bloated conventional cable bundle, would be forced to carry more networks. Sling’s basic “orange” service includes about 20 networks from various companies for a $20 monthly rate. From the Turner fold, TNT, TBS, CNN and Cartoon Network are included in that package. – Dade Hayes, Deadline Hollywood
