It looks like SFN TV Now, a new “cable channel” bundle streaming service is accepting signups for it’s service and free trial again.
SFN TV Now previously offered a variety of specific streaming packages at various price points as an alternative to cable, setting it apart from streaming services PlayStation Vue and Sling TV.
It looks like with the relaunch they have pared down the offering to just 4 packages. This will definitely be very disappointing to most cord cutters, as their BETA offering allowed for true skinny bundling, with choices for Kids, Sports, & News. I think the true skinny bundles offered them an edge, as many cord cutters may only want news, sports, or the kids channels.
The 4 packages offered now are local stations (only available in the Atlanta area), a faith based package, and then 2 larger bundles ($36 for 70+ channels, and $48 for 90+ channels). This unfortunately looks more like a traditional cable package than what was offered before.
Welcome features are the cloud based DVR, ability to stream on 3-5 devices depending on what package you subscribe to.
While the original BETA service was exciting and looked to be a true competitor for Playstation Vue, and SlingTV, it still looks like a nice package of bundled channels for a reasonable price.
SFN TV has seemed very responsive to feedback in the past, if you like the new bundles, or preferred the old bundle be sure to give them feedback at email@example.com.
SFN TV Now is available on Roku (3 & 4) and Android (5.0 and higher) devices.
