YouTube TV announced a carriage deal with ViacomCBS in May, but saw a $15 price hike of the service as a result. Sling TV just last week announced a 1-year price guarantee for new and existing subscribers.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but the two sides said the new multi-year renewal will continue to bring “ViacomCBS’s portfolio of broadcast, entertainment, news and sports networks to DISH and SLING TV customers.”
