DISH Network Introduces Sling TV

Posted January 7, 2015 by Webpass

DISH Network recently announced they will be launching Sling TV, a live television service, to customers in early 2015. The new service will provide a bundle of channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel via the Internet to subscribers. What it doesn’t include is FX, ABC, NBC, FOX and CBS, which isn’t too bad since those channels can be accessed via Hulu or digital antennae. For $20/month, subscribers can watch their favorite shows with no commitment. Subscribers will also have the option to pay $5 more for an add-on pack which will allow them access to additional programs such as ‘Kids Extra’ or ‘News & Info Extra’. Although DVR is not available this may still be more suitable than spending hundreds of dollars each month for traditional cable services. Sling TV will be supported on iOS, Android, Roku players and TV models, Amazon Fire TV, Google’s Nexus player, select LG Smart TV’s, Xbox One, Mac, PC’s and select Samsung Smart TV’s.
