Sling TV today launched an app on select LG Smart TVs, the first live streaming service to offer its programming on the company’s TV-based web platform.
The Net TV service is now available on most 2016 LG webOS 3.0 Smart TV models, and will become available on LG’s 2017 webOS 3.5 models in the coming months.
LG TV owners can add Sling TV’s live and On-Demand content by looking for the app in the LG launcher bar, and then pressing ‘Home’ and selecting ‘Go to LG Content Store’ to search for ‘Sling.’

(Editor’s Note: I used the Sling TV app today for roughly 15 minutes on my 2016 LG OLED TV and it operated without any issues.)
Sling offers two basic tier packages — Orange, which starts at $20-a-month and includes ESPN and roughly 30 cable networks; and Blue, which starts at $25-a-month, and includes more than 40 channels including live network feeds in select markets as well as several Fox channels.
The live streaming service comes with a free 7-day trial.
