We’ve been living satellite/cable free for about four years now. We subscribe to Netflix and Hulu Plus and get our TV fix that way. However, it also means that the hubster misses his Lakers games and a few other sports shows. That’s all about to change with the recent announcement of Sling TV.
Sling TV is an over-the-top (OTT) Internet-delivered TV platform currently available via its Slingbox, but will soon also be available on the Xbox One via an app. If you’re an Xbox Live member, you’ll soon see a one-month free offer when the service rolls out in the coming weeks.
Sling TV, which requires no contract or extra hardware installation, features channels such as ESPN and ESPN 2, as well as TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel. You can currently take advantage of this service via its Slingbox 500 (shown above), available for purchase on Slingbox.com for $299. The service will be available on the Xbox One for $20 a month.
