Sling TV has dropped a handful of major announcements this morning that are sure to make both movie fans and college football fans happy.

Details on the Addition of Starz
The addition of Starz means that Sling TV users have access to just about every premium movie channel they could possibly want. For now, the network will be available 7-days as free-view. This allows all users to see the premiere of the newest Star Wars movie on September 10 at 9 PM ET. After that, you can add Starz for $9 per month on either Sling Orange or Sling Blue.
Sling TV Becomes First to Offer Pac-12 Network Live Stream
Pac-12 fans will be delighted as Sling TV has added all 6 regional feeds to both their Sports Extra package. This is officially the only legal way to watch the Pac 12 Network online without a cable subscription. Regional feeds include:
- Pac-12 Arizona
