Sling TV launches on Xbox One

Sling TV Xbox OneWeb-delivered TV service, Sling TV, has rolled out on the Xbox One in the US, marking its first games console launch to date.

The recently-launched US$20 per-month over-the-top TV service offers a “best of live TV” core package with live sports, lifestyle, family and news channels, plus video-on-demand content.

Channels that feature in the core package include ESPN, AMC, TNT, CNN, Travel Channel, Food Network and Disney Channel.

Extra sports, kids, lifestyle, world news and Hollywood packages can all be added for an additional US$5 each, offering an expanded line-up of channels.

“We built Sling TV with millennials in mind, and that includes gamers. Xbox has been at the forefront of gaming and technology for years, so it made sense to bring Sling TV to the passionate Xbox user,” said Sling TV CEO Roger Lynch.

“For many millennials, Xbox One is already the centre of their living room experience, and we want to reach these fans to show there’s a better way to get live TV that doesn’t require a long-term commitment, high programming costs, additional wires or hidden fees.”
