Sling TV launches $20 per month live TV service, adds AMC channel

slingtv-dish-logos-ces-2015The much-anticipated over-the-top Sling TV service has launched in the US, along with late, but welcome news of the addition of AMC channel to the lineup. That means fans of “Mad Men” and “The Walking Dead” don’t necessarily have to be tied to a TV service contract in order to keep up with the latest episodes.

The Dish-owned service is offering a free 7-day trial for new customers, who can then pay $20 per month for the “Best of Live TV” core package of channels that include AMC, ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, ABC Family, Disney Channel, CNN, El Rey and Galavision.

The package also includes WatchESPN at no additional cost to customers with the core package, and access to on-demand content.

Optional “add on” packages include “Sports Extra,” “Kids Extra” and “News & Info Extra,” all priced at an additional $5 each per month.

The Sling TV service does not require a contract be signed, and no credit check is made upon registration. An authorized credit card, however, is required to sign up for the trial.

Sling TV is supported by PCs and Macs, current-generation Roku players, Roku TV models, Android and iOS devices. Sling says support for Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick will be coming within days.

Additional support will be coming for Google’s Nexus Player, webOS Smart TVs from LG Electronics, select Samsung Smart TVs, and Microsoft’s Xbox One.

  1. Is there a complete list of stations that are available on Sling?

    I am a NASCAR fan , does Sling have access to the races?

    Thank you.
