It’s official – Sling TV is now available on Android TV devices, including Google’s Nexus Player. And to celebrate the occasion, Sling TV and Google are teaming up to offer new subscribers 50% off a Nexus Player streaming device when they prepay for three months of service.
With this news, Sling TV’s ever-expanding list of compatible devices now includes iOS devices, PC, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, Android devices, and now Android TV. With functionality on such a broad range of devices, Sling TV will likely continue to grow its subscriber base and could soon become a true threat to the cable TV model. The Dish Network-backed internet TV service has already created a buzz since launching in February by making a range of popular cable channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, TNT, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, CNN, History Channel, and several others available for just $20 per month with no contract required. It also gained attention by making HBO available without a cable subscription for an additional $15 per month.
The Nexus Player features a sleek,compact design and comes with a user-friendly, voice-activated remote that’s great for searching for your favorite shows.
This isn’t the first time Sling TV has partnered with a streaming device manufacturer to offer an exclusive deal to new subscribers. The company also has similar offers available for Roku devices, enticing customers who prepay for three months of service with half off the set-top boxes or a free streaming stick from the respective manufacturers.
Those who already have a Nexus Player or Android TV device can download the app now on Google Play and sign up for a free 7 day trial of the service.
