After being teased back in September, Sling TV now works on the Chromecast. For those not in the know, Sling TV is a service offered by Dish for cord-cutters to help them keep watching live TV, such as ESPN, AMC, and others for $20 per month.
This is great for cord-cutters who only have a Chromecast for streaming, as now they’ll be able to use this service on their TV. Both Sling and Google have offers available because of the announcement. If a customer pre-pays for three months of the “Best of Live TV” package (essentially their basic package), you’ll get a Chromecast for free. Here is part of Sling TV’s statement:
“Starting today, Sling TV supports Google’s Chromecast, making it even more convenient for customers to stream the best live and on-demand programming to their TVs using their Android smart phones and tablets, iPhones and iPads. And don’t worry, Windows and Mac casters, we’re working on future compatibility for your laptops as well.”
Google is also throwing in an offer for existing Chromecast users, letting them try out Sling TV for free for two months by going to their offer page. Are any of you Sling TV customers or willing to try it out for either offer? The app can be found over on the Google Play Store.
