Sling TV will offer HBO plus on-demand content in time for Game of Thrones premiere

Update (4/8 9:00am): Sling has pushed the HBO update to its accounts, subscribers can sign-up today for the add-on package at a price of $15/month. Apple TV users have the option of grabbing a free 30-day trial of the recently released HBO Now, as well.

Sling TV is continuing to push traditional television providers, announcing today that it will carry HBO’s linear channel plus on-demand content before the Game of Thrones premiere on April 12th. HBO’s standard channel and an “extensive VOD library” will be a $15 add-on to Sling’s “best of live TV” $20 core package. No word yet on HBO Go accessibility on iOS or Apple TV. This follows last month’s launch of AMC just in time for Mad Men’s last run starting this Sunday.

Interested in Sling TV? You can grab a free Amazon Fire Stick or Roku Stick by signing up for three months of service. Xbox One members can enjoy a free month trial with a Live membership.

Verizon continues to sweeten the deal to get you to jump on a 2-year contract by now offering FiOS 50/50 Internet + Local Channels + HBO and Showtime + Netflix price locked for 2 years at only $59.99/mo. That’s $20/month less than our previous mention, plus the addition of Netflix and both premium channels (instead of your choice of only one previously).

This offer is $10 less than getting FiOS 50/50 Internet by itself and it’s also the first time we’ve ever seen them offer a Netflix subscription. The waived activation fee is also a savings of $50 from previous offers.

Verizon is offering a 2-year contract with 25/25mb Internet, Preferred HD TV, and Phone, plus a $400 Visa Prepaid Card and 2-Years of Premium Channels for free with no activation fee price locked for 2 years at only $79.99/mo. This is one of the best FIOS offers we have seen from Verizon and the largest Visa Prepaid Card we’ve seen.

Not a big fan of contracts? The same bundle is offered at the same price per month, but you forgo the gift card.

Don’t need a home phone but want HBO? Want to pay less but get faster internet speeds?  Verizon has a $50 for 50/50MB internet plan that’s one of our favorites.
