Dish Network just announced that will be bringing cable TV to the internet with a service called Sling TV. This is a new service aimed to get back those cord cutter customers and those who never actually had a cable or satellite subscription.
Sling TV will go for $20 per month and will get customers access to great, but limited, live programing with channels like ESPN, Adult Swim, HGTV, TNT, and many more. If the service still does not sounds good enough, Microsoft is partnering with Dish Network to offer Xbox Live Gold members one month of extended free trial, as Xbox One will be the exclusive game console to carry the service at launch.
If you like the service, you can keep it for $20 a month when it launches in the coming weeks, you can add even more channels with add-on bundles of $5 each. The service will be available in the coming weeks to Xbox One owners and Sling TV will launch later this month on other devices such as Roku and Amazon’s Fire TV.
