FTR, according to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle’s SFGate, the eight Showtime channels Sling will now be carrying are Showtime (east and west), Showtime 2, Showtime Showcase, Showtime Extreme, Showtime Beyond, Showtime Next and Showtime Women. The Movie Channel and Flix are absent, as is, strangely, Showtime Family Zone. And yes, Sling is counting the two coastal feeds of the main Showtime channel as separate channels; so technically, it’s offering seven channels in the add-on pack. But good for Sling, hopefully, they’ll eventually add an “Extra” pack that allows Showtime subscribers to add TMC and Flix to the package, and hopefully, they’ll add the multiplex feeds of HBO, Cinemax, Starz and Starz Encore that they don’t carry at present.
