Dish today announced the launch of a new skinny bundle that it calls Flex Pack. It provides Dish customers with choice and flexibility to create a personalized TV package. The skinny bundle starts at $39.99 per month and includes a core package of programming which consists of more than 50 channels while customers will also get a choice of one of eight themed channel packs.
Customers can easily add and remove as many channel packs they would like every month to best suit their requirements. Individual packs feature channels from local broadcast networks, kids, general entertainment as well as national and regional action. The packs range in price from $4 to $10 per month.
Flex Pack provides customers with flexibility as they don’t have to pay hundreds for a TV contract that features countless channels that they don’t even watch. “Flex Pack provides a level of flexibility and control that brings our customers closer to the ideal of fully tailoring their channel lineup,” explains Warren Schlichting, Dish executive vice president of Marketing, Programming and Media Sales.
The core package includes channels like AMC, USA, TNT, CNN, Discovery, Food Network, FX, and many more. There are a handful of individual packs available which add the likes of ABC, CNN, FOX, NBC, ESPN, CNBC, Bloomberg, and many other channels.
Customers can decide whether or not they want to add any of these packages to the core programming which costs $29.99. For an additional fee customers can add-on premium channels like HBO, Starz, Showtime, and Cinemax. The complete channel list is now available on Dish’s website.
