Sling TV

Sling TV is a live TV package that starts at $20 per month for more than 30 channels, including ESPN, AMC, TNT, CNN, History, HGTV and the Disney Channel. How does it work, how can you get it and will it let you quit cable?




What is Sling TV?



Sling TV is service that allows subscribers to watch a collection of live and on-demand TV channels on their TVs, computers or mobile devices. This is live TV, just like a cable or satellite TV service, except it's delivered over the internet.

Although Sling TV is a subsidiary of Dish Network, the satellite provider, it's operated as an entirely separate service. You do not need a Dish subscription (or a satellite dish) to get Sling TV.



How is it different from my cable or satellite provider?



Depending on how much you pay for TV service, it's probably cheaper. To use it you'll need a good internet connection and a compatible device to run the Sling TV app, which takes the place of a cable or satellite box and connects to a TV. You can also watch on your phone, tablet or computer, either at home or away.

The best part? Unlike cable or satellite, there are no contracts and you can cancel or resume service anytime, with no penalties. One way to think of it is Netflix, but with live TV.



Is it easy to find stuff to watch?



Much easier than cable, in our book. Sling TV's app has a user interface that's more like Netflix than the traditional cable TV grid guide. It features thumbnail images of shows and easy access to on-demand content, and the interface focuses on individual channels and genres in an easy-to use way.

The main My TV page lets you choose your favorite channels and shows, as well as continue watching on-demand content where you left off. The On Now section lists currently airing shows in categories like Sports, Kids and Lifestyle. There's a full guide too, but without a grid, just all of the channels you subscribe to, sub-divided again into categories. You also get an easy to use search function to find specific shows.
