Today we launched AFRO, a polycultural Black television network in our “Lifestyle Extra.” AFRO provides live linear and on-demand television, in addition to exclusive and original afro-centric movies and series, including late night shows (“The Samy Priso Show”), talk shows (“Journey”), fashion shows (“Style Check”) and comedies (“Viral Breakdown”).
AFRO joins other popular channels in Lifestyle Extra, including BET, Cooking Channel, DIY Network, E!, FYI, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, LMN, Oxygen, truTV, VH1 and WE tv.
AFRO is available in Lifestyle Extra, $5 per month with a Sling Orange and/or Sling Blue subscription. Subscribers to Lifestyle Extra will automatically see AFRO appear in their guide. Customers interested in adding Lifestyle Extra to their subscription may update their account on Sling.com.
