Sling adds Fox networks, including regional Fox Sports networks, to their service offerings. They are part of a new “beta multi-stream” service that appears to be available separately from their base plan for $20 per month. Probably the cheapest way to (legally) get in-market baseball?
Hat tip to RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) from today’s Omnichatter.

Did the article really need the intro?
BTW, it’s only seven games.
