Sling TV – Dish wants to be the next Netflix and Hulu!

Dish now has a new service: Sling TV which for $20/mo. you can get selected channels such as:

  • ESPN
  • ESPN2
  • CBS
  • TNT
  • TBS
  • CNN
  • Food Network
  • HGTV
  • Cartoon Network
  • Adult Swim
  • the Disney Channel

With Sling TV you can watch LIVE channels on you almost any streming device… Most of the channels allow you to watch shows as much as 3 days back! ESPN and ESPN2 for example don’t allow you to record or pause the playback – you can only watch it live! Keep in mind there isn’t a DVR.

The Sling TV service can be watched from (as of now):

  • Your Android / iOS device
  • From a Web Browser
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Amazon Fire TV Stick
  • Google Nexus Player
  • LG Smart TVs
  • Mac / OS X
  • Roku set-top boxes
  • Roku Streaming Stick
  • Roku TV
  • Windows PC
  • Xbox One

There are no contacts involved you you can cancel the service anytime you want and with the Xbox One you get a one month trail so you can have enough time to make sure this service fits your needs.

If you need more channels then you can buy ad-ons.

Dish wants this to be another streming service along with Hulu Plus and/or Netflix. As for now we suggest you keep your current streaming service subscription for now…
