What happened to Paramount Network on Sling TV? Here's the official word

Paramount Network is an American cable television channel where users stream the latest episodes and watch behind-the-scenes clips. It also includes movies from CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and so on.

Even the Paramount Network app is free to download on Apple, Amazon, Roku, or Android devices. However, that is not the case when it comes to Sling TV.

Apparently, Sling TV offered a free preview of the Paramount Network channel to its users. But it seems that it has withdrawn that policy ever since November 20.


According to Sling support, Paramount Network will now be available through the ‘Comedy Extra’ add-on at an additional $6/month.

However, the inaccessibility of the channel on Sling has got users (especially Yellowstone viewers) seemingly unhappy and prompted them to complain about the same on Twitter.

Ridiculous! Now we have to pay extra every month and extra for Yellowstone! Cancelling today!

Thank @Sling for being greedy and up charging mid season. Not paying a penny more. Not super impressed with this season so far anyway


Needless to say, it comes across as quite a bummer as the unavailability of the latest season of the series on Paramount Plus also troubled many in the past.

It’s so disheartening for users that they have also been prompted to quit Sling TV for good.

While Sling has already clarified that users will only be able to view the Paramount Network channel via subscription, it seems that not many are going to sign up for this, considering the reports.
