    Sling TV has added two new channels, one of which will be included in its “Best of Live TV” core package.

    Polaris+ from Maker Studios will provide “online gaming, comic and pop culture” content, and is exclusive to the service. The channel will be found in Sling’s $20 per month basic package.

    Along with Polaris+, Sling TV customers will also have access to the Maker channel, which will feature “popular short-form videos from Maker’s vast library of content.”

    If you’re a fan of movies from yesteryear, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is coming to Sling TV as well. The channel will fit into its Hollywood Extra add-on package, which currently costs $5 per month.

    In addition to streaming content, Sling says customers will see on-demand options for TCM sometime in the future.
