Sling TV, a subsidiary of DISH Network that provides over-the-top (OTT) television services including domestic and international live and Video-On-Demand (VOD) programming,  has debuted its live, OTT TV and VOD service to customers nationwide in the US. The Sling TV delivers live sports, lifestyle, family, news and information channels, and Video-On-Demand entertainment to broadband-connected devices at home and on-the-go. 

Sling TV is priced at $20 per month with a seven-day free trial. The service that is being offered without long-term commitment, annual contract or hardware installation, provides live sports, lifestyle, family, news and information channels as well as VOD entertainment. It brings famous channels such as ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, ABC Family, Disney Channel, CNN, El Rey and Galavision, as part of its core packages. Customers can choose to tailor their entertainment experience with optional “Sports Extra,” “Kids Extra” and “News & Info Extra” add-on packs, each priced at $5 per month.

Customers can watch live TV on the devices they already use to watch video – TVs, tablets, computers and smartphones. The Sling TV app is available on current-generation Roku players, Roku TV models, iOS, Android, Mac and PC, with support for Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick in the coming days. In the coming months, Sling TV is expected to launch on Google’s Nexus Player, webOS Smart TVs from LG Electronics, select Samsung Smart TVs and Xbox One, with other streaming devices and smart TVs to follow.

Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV
There has been a remarkable expression of consumer interest since we first announced Sling TV one month ago. We believe Sling TV is a game-changing service that enhances the existing television landscape. Now underserved audiences have access to the best of live TV at an affordable price.”
