Sling TV beefs up its basic lineup and adds a movie tier

A new study by Parks Associates lends support to Bhise's statement about the potential demand. In U.S. homes with broadband, Parks reported, nearly half of the video viewed on the television was from "nonlinear" sources such as online services, digital recorders, pay-TV video-on-demand channels and DVDs. That's up from less than 40% in the final quarter of 2010.

Sling is still a work in progress in a couple of important ways. The channel lineup isn't final yet, nor has the company finished putting together its add-on tiers. In addition, while most of the channels offer the ability to pause, rewind and restart programs, and some offer full video-on-demand capabilities, a number do not. Those features are important because the service doesn't let viewers record programs.
