DirecTV Now Adds Two New Channels
I read this article back in April that DirecTV Now was going to get two new channels in the next few weeks.
These networks are One America News Network (OAN), a cable news channel, and A Wealth of Entertainment (AWE).
Now I heard (Thanks John!) that the channels have finally showed up so have updated the site accordingly.

STARZ Channels Added to DirecTV NOW
I got a heads up (Thanks Kim!) that DirecTV NOW has added 3 STARZ channels today.
Looking into it more, I found that it is Starz, Starz Encore, and Starz Kids & Family for an extra $8 per month,
so I have put them in the "Add-On Channels" panel at the bottom with the other add-ons.
Here is one of the articles I found:

"My Favorites" Feature Added!
I have added a new feature under the Lineups menu called "My Favorites" that will display your favorite channels in a single panel.
Just head on over to the
area to select your favorites.
Also, if you happen to use this site on multiple devies, I created a way to share preferences between devices.
This way you only need to set up your favorites one time, and not on each device.
Check the bottom of the preferences page for a link containing your preferences key, which you can copy/paste and email to yourself, then just click it on the other device.
As always any feedback or bug reports are appreciated! Contact StreamingTVGuides.com
Happy New Year!!!

DirecTV NOW Lineup Corrections
I have made a few corrections to the DirecTV NOW lineups, removing some channels that didn't belong like GAC and WGN,
and also adding some that were missing like the multiple HBO channels.
I really appreciate the emails that pointed out the discrepancies, so if you see anything else please let me know!

DirecTV NOW Lineups Added to StreamingTVGuides.com!
AT&T launched their new DirecTV NOW streaming TV service today and I signed up right away, locking in the deal on the "Go Big" package.
I think the on-screen guide is a lot better than the other 2 providers, but still like having a second screen option so have added their lineups here.
Still need to fix up some of the channel logos, but will get to that tomorrow.

Viacom Channels Removed From PlayStation Vue Lineups
Per the recent Sony announcement, the following Viacom channels have been removed from the PlayStation Vue lineups:
It also appears that the new NBA TV channel is only available on the Core and above lineups, so I have removed it from Access lineup.
11/09/2016 07:30 AM
PlayStation Vue Lineup Changes
According to the articles linked below, it looks like PlayStation Vue has added a couple of channels, but are losing all the Viacom channels! They have added BBC America and NBA TV channels, but it isn't clear to me at what level so I included them in all the Vue lineups (although I'm not seeing them yet with my Access Slim plan). The Viacom channels are going away Nov. 11th, and seems like kind of big deal since it is over 20 channels.

Site Updated to MVC Framework!
As mentioned in the About
page, I work on this site in my spare time to try to keep my "font-end" programming skills up-to-date.
As such, I have just finished converting the site from an ASP.NET WebForms application, to an MVC application.
There aren't many things visually noticeable by such a conversion, other than the web page addresses no longer end in ".aspx",
so I included a couple new features also!
There is a slightly redesigned navbar with icons to try to make the Preferences
I also made it so that the channel logo column stays fixed when scrolling the programs on narrower width screens. Hope you enjoy!

NHL Network, Hallmark and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries added to Sling TV!
I got another heads up today (thanks again Brooke!) that Sling TV added the NHL Network, Hallmark and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channels to their lineups, so I have updated the site accordingly.
Looks like NHL Network was added to both the Orange and Blue – Sports Extra, while the Hallmark channels were added to the Orange and Blue – Lifestyle Extra.

09/05/2016 01:30 PM
On-Demand Only Channels
I have had a couple of emails regarding the FXX and Nat Geo Wild channels on Sling Blue are Video On-Demand and not live programming.
So I have updated the guide to just show On-Demand for those channels and also NBC, ABC and FOX on PS Vue.
Thanks for emails!

NFL Network and NFL RedZone added to PlayStation Vue - Core and Elite Lineups!
I saw that PlayStation Vue announced
that the NFL Network was added to the Core and Elite lineups, and the NFL RedZone is available as an add-on.
08/18/2016 10:00 AM
I saw an article on CordCuttersNews.com
about a new streaming TV service coming out soon called TURVI TV.
Apparently they will offer local channels, DVR, 5 streams, and a 10 channel a la carte package.
Also says there is no free trial, but you can save the $50 activation fee if you pre-register to be notified of when they launch.
TURVI TV's web site
And of course, I will be looking to add their lineups once they launch.
However, that will be depedent on another new feature I am working on where you will be able to create custom lineups. :)

Sorry for the Down Time!
I went to update the program listings and somehow crashed the site.
Turned out it was due to MTV taking over VH1 Classic, and my data provider changed the call signs.
I will probably need to go find new logo icons now too...ugh!
Of course this was news to me: MTV Classic Launch
Sorry about that!

Favorite Theme Survey
Did you know the site's color scheme can be changed under "Theme" in "Preferences"?
(gear icon in upper right corner
According to the site analytics, it seems that the "Slate" theme is the most popular.
Slate was originally my favorite theme, which is why I chose it for the default, but now I use Cyborg Inverse most of the time.
I have created a quick survey using SurveyMonkey.com for you to vote for your favorite here:
Favorite Theme Survey
Another reason for the survey is for us to gauge audience interest with the site's development.
We have several new features on the to-do list, but have limited resources and would like to implement the highest demanded new feature next.
If we see a good response to this survey, we will run another one listing the new features to vote for.
So please take a minute and get involved.

East vs. West Programming
I have finally addressed an issue when there is different programming on certain channels at the same hour based on East vs. West coast.
There were two channels in Sling Orange lineup that specifically have been fixed, the Disney Channel and Cartoon Network, and most of the channels in the PlayStation Vue lineups.
If you have selected Central or Eastern as your preferred time zone, you will get the East coast programming, otherwise you will get the "Pacific" versions.
Please let me know if you notice there are other channels in any of the lineups that still have this issue.

Fixed Time Zone Picker Bug
I was notified today that the Time Zone picker in the Preferences
did not seem to be making any effect (Thanks Bob B!).
Sure enough, it looks like I introduced a bug a couple of updates ago when I implemented some output caching on the back-end.
The intention of the Time Zone picker is so that no matter where you are in the world, nor what time zone setting is on your computer,
the hours headers should display in the time that you have selected in the preferences.
If they are not, please let me know! (contact

Updated PlayStation Vue Core and Elite Lineup Panels
I made a small change in the way the PlayStation Vue Core and Elite lineups are displayed.
Originally, those panels displayed just the channels that were in addition to the lower package.
Now, the Core and Elite will display all the channels in one panel.
Because of this change, I also renamed the "Providers" menu to "Lineups" and they can be found there now.
07/07/2016 12:00 AM
Added Sling TV "News Extra" Lineup!
I received a request today to display the news channels (Thanks Peter D!), so I have added the "News Extra" panel to the Orange and Blue lineups.

) if you notice anything wrong!

Updated Sling TV "Orange" and "Blue" Lineups
I saw that Sling TV announced their new Orange and Blue services
So I have updated the channel lineups again, and also the Providers menu with the Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue lineups!
I also made another small change to sort the channels alphabetically within the panels.
Any feedback is appreciated as is any error reports. Thanks!

Added Big Ten Network to PlayStation Vue - Core Slim Lineup
I saw there was another post on the PlayStation Vue forum that requested that I add the Big Ten Network to the Core Slim lineup (Thanks ltbeeb233!).
I also finished updating all the channel logo icons. It takes me 10 times longer to do those little icons than to update the code!
06/22/2016 12:00 AM
Added PlayStation Vue - Core Slim and Elite Slim Lineups
I noticed some site traffic coming from a PlayStation Vue forum today due to someone making mention of it there (Thanks CigarTriGuy!).
So I got inspired to finally do the updates that add the Core Slim and Elite Slim lineups.
The Core Slim panel shows the channels that are in addition to the Access Slim, and the Elite Slim panel shows the channels that are in addition to those.
Still working on updating the channel logo icons.
As always, any feedback is appreciated as is any verification help since I only have the Access Slim package.
06/21/2016 12:00 AM
Updated Sling TV Multi-Stream Best of Live TV Lineup
Added some more missing channels (Comedy Central, FXX, FS2 and NatGeo Wild) to the Sling TV Multi-Stream Best of Live TV Lineup.
Was also notified that the Outside Channel is also showing up, but I was unable to verify this. Is anybody else seeing that?
06/15/2016 12:00 AM
Realigned Sling TV Lineups
Added the "Comedy Plus Extra" lineup, along with the new channels (Comedy Central, BET, Nick Jr., NickToons, TeenNick, MTV, Spike, MTV2, LOGO, CMT, TV Land and VH1) to their respective lineups.
Also, moved the Sling TV Multi-Stream under the Providers menu to display its lineups separate from the Single-Stream.
I am no longer a subscriber of Sling TV, so can't verify if everything is correct now.
So please let me know (contact
) if you notice anything wrong.
Soon, I will be adding the "Broadcast Extra", or a "Local Broadcasting" panel for those who use streaming along with an HDTV antenna (like me).
05/04/2016 12:00 AM
Added FS1 to Sling TV – BETA MULTI-STREAM Lineup
Was notified today (Thanks Mike!) that the Sling TV – BETA MULTI-STREAM lineup was missing the FS1 channel.
Oops! Not sure how I missed that. Thanks for catching it and letting me know!

Added Sling TV – BETA MULTI-STREAM Lineup
Per request (Thanks Lionel!) I just finished adding the Sling TV – BETA MULTI-STREAM lineup.
I am not a subscriber of that package, so can't verify it is correct. Please let me know if you notice anything wrong.
Soon I will add another preference setting for your preferred lineup.
04/23/2016 12:00 AM
Added PlayStation Vue Channel Logo Icons
I just finished adding the channel logo icons that were missing from the PlayStation Vue – Access Slim lineup. Next items on
my to-do list are to add the other PV lineups (Core, Elite, and Premium Channels), and also to make the channel column freeze when scrolling.
04/22/2016 12:00 AM
Added a "favicon"
In my rush to launch the new site, I forgot to create a new "Favicon
It is kind of hard to find one that seems applicable, so I settled on this simple table-grid icon which is included in Font Awesome
and should look pretty good across several devices:

SlingTVGuide.com has been re-designed and re-launched as StreamingTVGuides.com!
After many hours climbing the learning curve of modern web programming, I am proud to launch the site re-design!

, or by clicking the gear icon in the upper right.
I have also added the PlayStation Vue "Access Slim" lineup, and will be adding the "Core Slim" and "Access Slim" lineups soon.

03/19/2016 12:00 AM
I am getting ready to launch the site re-design which I decided to purchase a new domain name and transfer to a new host.
My old host got confused and suspended my domains, also while I was at the cinema watching 10 Cloverfield Lane last night.
I have everything up and running on the new host now, and there shouldn't be any more hiccups. :)
02/14/2016 12:00 AM

Sling added Cinemax for only $10 a month, so I have added the lineup here.
