Today, Sling TV announced they have released an app for the Amazon Fire HD and HDX tablets. This is in addition to apps already available on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, meaning that Amazon users have multiple ways to access live streaming television.
But perhaps the biggest news of the day is that for a limited time, Amazon Fire tablet users can get a free 14-day trial to Sling TV, which is double the length of their normal free trial offering.
