Dish Network’s new live Sling TV service will work with iOS devices and Macs

January 5, 2015

Cord cutters have a new friend with Dish Network’s just announced Sling TV service.

Arriving in the first quarter of this year, for just $20 month, consumers can access live feeds from these cable networks: ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, ABC Family, and CNN.

The Internet service will be available through a number of platforms, including iOS devices and Macs. Other outlets include Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, a number of smart TV sets from LG and Samsung, and the Xbox One game console.

TV fans wanting more channels, can select other add-on packs for an additional $5 per month.

Viewers will be able to pause, rewind, and fast-forward most live channels and video on demand options. For some channels, Dish is promising a 3-Day Replay feature that will stream selected shows that have aired in the past three days without a DVR.

No commitment, contract, credit check, or hardware installation is required for the service.

Late last year, HBO also announced that it will offer a standalone streaming service through the Internet to viewers sometime this year.
