Cord cutting has become increasingly popular in the last few years. More and more people are getting fed up with cable companies and relying solely on streaming services for entertainment. It’s more than possible to get your fix with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and more, but live TV is still important to many people.
Dish is launching a new service called “Sling TV” that will allow anyone to stream a bundle of around 12 channels for $20 a month. You’ll get TNT, TBS, CNN, Food Network, HGTV, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, the Disney Channel, ESPN, and ESPN2. The inclusion of ESPN channels is a very big deal. Live sports has been one reason why some people can’t cut the cord. That won’t be a problem any more. Users will also be able to purchase add-on packages for an extra $5 per month.
Sling TV will work with many set-top box devices, including Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and the Nexus Player. It will also work on Roku, Xbox One, LG Smart TVs, and PC.
