It’s taken a while, but one of our favorite streaming media services, Sling TV, now supports Chromecast on iOS and Android phones and tablets. Support for PC and Mac computers is coming soon, according to the Dish Network subsidiary. If you’re new to Sling TV, there are several offers that might interest you.
Sling TV is a live and on-demand Internet TV service available for PCs, Macs, as well as smartphones and tablets. It offers you more than 20 channels for $20 per month in the “Best of Live TV” package, including ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, A&E, TNT, History, History 2, TBS, and more.
“Sling TV fans have made it clear since the beginning that Chromecast is a must-have device, and we agree,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “With Chromecast, Sling TV customers now have the ability to move their entertainment experience from their mobile device to the big screen seamlessly.”
For new customers who don’t already own a Chromecast, Sling TV will send you a free device when you prepay for three months of the “Best of Live TV” package. If you already own a Google Chromecast, you can take advantage of a limited-time two-month free trial of the package. That option will be available on the Chromecast website soon, Sling TV says.
If you are already a Sling TV subscriber and have a Google Chromecast device, you should install or update the app. Then, you’ll be able to stream your Sling TV content to the Chromecast and enjoy it on your television screen. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on when the service might arrive on the new Apple TV. At least Sling TV is working to bring their service to more connected devices, though.
