Sling TV Streaming Service
From CES 2015 comes news that Dish Network’s Sling TV is set to launch a new monthly subscription service that will allow you to skip the cable providers to stream live TV from some of your favorite channels. The core lineup currently includes ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, ABC Family and CNN and will also feature video-On-Demand programming and the best of online video with long- and short-form content from Maker Studios. The best thing about Sling TV might be the fact that you can use it right through Mac or PC or a mobile device running on either iOs or Android. Other devices supported include Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Google’s Nexus Player, select LG Smart TVs, Roku players, Roku TV models, select Samsung Smart TVs, and Xbox One. Oh, and at $20 per month, we’ll sign up right now. Beyond the core package, Sling TV will offer $5 add-ons to let folks tailor the services a bit more. For example, there will be a “Kids Extra” add-on with Disney Junior, Disney XD, Boomerang, Baby TV and Duck TV, and a “News & Info Extra” add-on with HLN, Cooking Channel, DIY and Bloomberg TV. A “Sports Extra” package in the works also and will be introduced in the near future while you can also expect the core package to expand as well.
