    Glad they increased the cloud DVR.

    Sling also plans to add WGN America, to be renamed NewsNation. It was announced it'd be added in early 2021 when Nexstar renegotiated with Dish. It was said that it'd go in an extra package, and with the channel conversion - likely in the News Extra package.

    Given the price increases, I hope a few other channels are considered. Here are a few that come to mind:
    Animal Planet
    SONY Movie Channel and getTV (already carried on Dish Network, and on rival streaming fuboTV and vidgo). Hollywood Extra would be make sense at least for SONY.
    Bounce and Laff in Comedy Extra, and CourtTV in News Extra?. (A few of these are already carried on Dish Network, and sister channels from Katz to Grit, which was added recently.
    INSP HD (not on Dish)

    In my opinion, feTV should be moved to Lifestyle Extra with Hallmark, but it'd thin out the Comedy Extra package until other programming is filled in there. I feel the channel is a little out of place with the ViacomCBS channels and even GSN, even though it could be said TV Land loosely caters to those that like classic tv programming.
