The NFL Network will be the exclusive home for a number of Thursday night contests during the 2016 season.
Subscribers to the streaming TV service can now watch the NFL Network and NFL RedZone channels.
The NFL Network is available to all Sling Blue subscribers while the NFL RedZone channel has been added to the Sports Extra add-on package, which is an additional $5 per month.
With RedZone, subscribers can watch every touchdown of every game on Sundays. The NFL Network will be the exclusive channel to watch a number of Thursday night games this season and also features 24/7 programming about the popular league.
Sling Blue is available for $25 a month and will allow users to watch TV on more than one device simultaneously.
The original service, which only allows viewing on one device at a time, has been renamed Sling Orange and still costs $20 a month.
Both options feature a number of the same channels and some exclusives. You can see the entire lineup comparison here. If interested, you can now subscribe to both options for $40 per month, a $5 discount.
Arrived on the Apple TV
The Sling TV app looks great on the big screen.
Earlier this summer, the Sling TV app landed on the fourth-generation Apple TV.
The Sling service looks great on the set-top box featuring a new UI. Some of the features include the My TV view that serves as the app’s home screen. You can get direct access to the most watched content along with picking up programs right where you left off.
With the Mini Guide, viewers can see all of the available live content without having to miss what they are currently watching.
The app also offers Siri remote dictation. That means you’ll be able to find a program, channel, or actor by just using your voice.
If you’re interested, you can take a look at our complete overview of the service on the Apple TV.
Along with the Apple TV, the app is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models.
While the service is far from perfect, most notably lacking any type of DVR functionality on most channels, definitely take a look if you’re thinking about cutting the cord and saying goodbye to cable or satellite.
