Sling TV Becomes First Streaming Service Besides YouTube TV Integrated Into Google TV “Live” Tab
Sling TV’s channels are now more fully integrated into Google TV, including Chromecast with Google TV, making it easier and more convenient to browse, discover and enjoy live news, entertainment, and sports content than ever before.
The new integration feature is available immediately and is being rolled out to Sling TV subscribers on the Google TV platform over the next few days.
How to use the new Sling TV experience on Google TV
- Have an active Sling TV subscription and an active Google TV device
- Link your Sling TV account to your Google TV account. Do this by using your Google Home app on your smartphone or tablet.
- Play Sling TV channels. Select the LIVE tab on Google TV, then scroll through the channel guide. (Note - it may take several minutes after linking your Sling TV account to Google TV for the “LIVE” tab to appear)
Sling TV is a live TV streaming service with 2 distinct plans. The $35/month “Sling Orange” plan offers about 30 channels, including Disney Channel and ESPN. The $35/month “Sling Blue” plan offers about 40 channels, including Fox and NBC local channels.
If you subscribe to both plans, you’ll receive a $15 discount. Sling also offers various “Extra” packs that you can add to your subscription.
Sling is great for the budget-conscious cord cutter who just wants to watch live TV, but doesn’t need the most comprehensive channel selection.
