Customers who have access to Southern Fibernet internet will have an additional option to add to their package – SFN TV Now. This IPTV service offers a skinny bundle of channels to customers within its select service area in Atlanta. It was briefly available nationwide, becoming a competitor with other national services such as Sling TV, but has since pivoted to become available exclusively to customers with Southern Fibernet. When this change happened, customers who weren’t signed up for SFN internet had their subscriptions cancelled. The site was also stripped of details about their packages, available channels and other information.
