About the new channels

Revolt is was founded by Sean Combs and features live music performances. CineMoi is all about foreign films. Interestingly, CineMoi appeared on DIRECTV Satellite for a time but was removed after the channel may or may not have ceased programming for a short time.It’s nice to see that they were able to bounce back

Are these the channels for you?

The nice thing about live streaming TV packages is that you can try them without a long term commitment. If you don’t already have Sling, you can get it for 7 days free. The app runs on most phones, tablets, and streaming devices, and the best experience is our bundle with a player and OTA adapter that gives you free local channels in addition to the national channels available on the Sling service.

AirTV Player is a full-featured Android TV device that competes with AppleTV and others at a much lower price, pairs with your existing Google accounts, and lets you watch Netflix, Hulu, and others in 4K on your compatible TV.

Another nice thing about live streaming packages — they’re month-to-month so if you find these addon packages don’t make sense for you, you’re out at most $5 per package which is less than you probably pay for coffee every day. For that price you get to try a bunch of channels for a whole month. Why not give it a shot… worst comes to worst you just turn off those channels if you don’t like them.
