TV, It’s a-changin’…big time. The old school TV guides and set schedules will be a thing of the past very soon. It’s all about on demand and bingeing. Apps are all the rage and this train is not slowing down anytime soon. Frankly, I’m all about it. It’s literally impossible for me to sit down and watch a show at a set time every week. It’s just not going to happen. My life is too hectic and too, well, busy (I HATE saying that, but it’s true). Even though I only really watch a few shows, I really need to have that flexibility. Otherwise, I wouldn’t watch much of anything.
One service I came across and really like is Sling TV. This is a next-generation service that meets my entertainment needs and the needs of the famous cord-cutters and cord-nevers (often including millennials) with the live and on-demand TV they love, but have been missing. If you have a crazy life, if you travel a lot, or you just want complete control over your entertainment for a great price, I think this is something you need to try out.
Sling TV has it all…domestic, international, live, and on-demand programming! That’s right…live AND on-demand! Sling TV offers two streaming services, which collectively include content from Disney/ESPN, Fox, NBC, HBO, AMC, A&E, Turner, Scripps, Viacom, EPIX and Univision.
This service is fantastic because I can check out all of my sports (which needs to be live) in addition to my shows and movies. The kids even have all they need. It’s perfect and I don’t think you can do all of this with any other service.
This really has anything and everything I need as far as content. As great as that is, the absolutely bomb part for me…I can stream Sling TV at home or on the go and watch my shows on my TV, computer, tablet, or smartphone. That would be anytime and anywhere…and that would be awesome.
Do you know how awesome it is when I want to check out some shows and I’m on the road for business? I don’t have to worry about missing anything or about filling up some DVR until it’s full. It’s all there, right at my fingertips. I mean, Sling TV usually offers more live TV that the hotel TV does. It’s awesome to know that when I finally lie down to get ready for bed, I have this service there whenever I need it.
Sling TV is available on a ton of devices, including: Amazon Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Chromecast, current-generation Roku players, Roku TV models, Xbox One, Android, iOS, Mac and PC. To supplement Sling TV, you can also install either of these OTA antennae in their home to receive local programming for free (RCA and TERK).
Anywhere, anytime…like I said!
So, what do you think? Are you sold yet? I know you want to give it a shot.
Outstanding News: Apple TV and More Channels
Guess what? Sling TV is getting even better! Sling TV is now available on Apple TV. They have a device offer where new customers can prepay for 3 months of Sling and get Apple TV for $89 (normally $149). Click here for more info!
If that wasn’t enough to get you excited, how about 12 Viacom networks added, including Comedy Central, Nick Jr., BET, NickToons, TeenNick, MTV, Spike, MTV2, Logo, CMT, TV Land and VH1!!! They also just recently launched NBC local broadcast channels (in select markets), USA, Bravo, Syfy, NBC Sports Network and more!
The service starts at $20/mo. with no hidden fees. No long-term contracts. Easy online cancellation. Throw in some extras for $5-$15/mo and you really have it all at your fingertips! That’s a steal, no? Seriously, this bad boy is the service that’s going to make it easy for you to cut the cord, leave big cable bills and long-term contracts behind.
Can you feel the weight being lifted off of your shoulders and your check book? I can.
