Sling TV comes to Amazon Fire tablets
Sling TV has become the un-subscription model, bringing you TV over an internet connection and eliminating contracts. You'll need a box -- both Roku 3 and Amazon Fire TV will work just fine and put video on the big screen just like cable or satellite. The company motto is "take back TV", and it does so. You can get channels ranging from ESPN to HBO to Food Network.
But what about on the go? Well, you can use your phone, but now the screen gets a bit bigger. Sling is announcing the debut of its service on Amazon Fire tablets.
"Available now, the Sling TV app can be downloaded from the Amazon Appstore onto your Amazon Fire HD or HDX tablet. Get ready to bring your favorite live and on-demand programming with you, wherever you and your tablet may go", Sling states.
This will work on the HDX 7 or 8.9, as well as the HD 6 and 7. Users will also get a free trial for 14 days to evaluate the service.
With Sling TV you can cancel anytime, there's no obligation. You can also add other packages of channels that will net you extra sports channels, news or even foreign language. The base price will set you back $20, and packages run $5 extra, while HBO will take $15 from your wallet.
