Sling TV has arrived as a new exclusive app for the Xbox One. Sling TV allows subscribers to watch live TV through the Xbox One console without an existing cable or satellite subscription. Channels like ESPN, ESPN 2, AMC, Adult Swim, TBS, TNT and other channels and video on demand content are included in the base $20 subscription, dubbed “Best of Live TV.”
Sling subscribers can then add a la carte add-ons to their subscriptions to add more sports, kids, news, and other categories of extras for an additional $5 per month, per pack.
According to Sling TV CEO Roger Lynch, “We built Sling TV with millennials in mind, and that includes gamers. Xbox has been at the forefront of gaming and technology for years, so it made sense to bring Sling TV to the passionate Xbox user. For many millennials, Xbox One is already the center of their living room experience, and we want to reach these fans to show there’s a better way to get live TV that doesn’t require a long-term commitment, high programming costs, additional wires or hidden fees.”
The Sling TV app is available now on the Xbox Store. Anyone can download it for free and try the service for 30-days.
