Then, you can add any number of extra channel packs, depending on your interests, or one of those premium networks with top-quality content. American Heroes is present in the Heartland extra, which means you'll have to pay an additional $5 per month to watch it. TechNadu has a Sling TV review ready if you want more details.

Next up, we have Philo, a platform that makes choosing easy since it only has two bundles to pick from and no room for customization. Philo's two bundles are suggestively called 40 Channels and 49 Channels and cost $16 per month and $20 per month, respectively. American Heroes Channel is present in the 49 Channels bundle, so you only have one option to get the network you want here and you can easily subscribe to Philo and get it.
