Dish’s new Sling TV service has been dubbed as a cord-cutters dream. It finally gives non-cable subscribers the ability to tune into ESPN and other premium channels for just $20 a monthly, but the company just revealed its new channel packages that will nearly double your monthly deal.

Sling TV opened up early access to users today and announced that along with the channels that come in the standard $20 Sling TV package, Sling TV will also offer three other additional channel packages priced at an extra $5 per month a piece. The extras include more channels for sports fans, kids, and the news.

Sling TV is offering the first subscribers a free 7-day trial period with access to the $20 per month “Best of Live TV” package that includes ESPN, ESPN 2, TNT, TBS, the Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, ABC Family, and CNN.
