Sling TV came out with a trio of updates earlier this week that make changes to its Xbox One app interface, wireless bundling stance, and internet browser support.
The Xbox One Sling TV app update brings the widely appreciated Sling TV grid guide to Xbox users. The updated interfaces makes navigating incredibly easy as it filters channels by genre, what’s playing on live TV, and individual channel schedules—all in the same place. Users can find the grid guide integrated on the Xbox One Sling TV app now.
Instead of offering app support for Mac and Windows computers, Sling TV shifts its focus to Google Chrome support. Users who downloaded the Sling TV app on their computer can delete it, as it no longer functions. However, Sling TV’s Google Chrome interface is strikingly similar to what the apps used to look like. To watch Sling TV on a computer, users can just visit the Sling TV website, sign in, and watch just as users did before.
Sling TV also announced a partnership bundle with the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) that offers live and on-demand streaming for CCA members. Though CCA doesn’t have a huge membership (just a little over 100), the partnership marks a significant step for streaming services. We expect streaming services to continue partnering with wireless providers to bundle internet and streaming services together.
