Samsung has added Sling TV to select television models, the first live streaming service to be offered on the company’s Smart TVs.
Sling, which offers dozens of channels in plans starting at $20 a month, is now available on Samsung’s line of 2016 model Smart TVs. Samsung and Sling said in a press release that more Samsung models will get the live streaming service later.
“With football season in full swing, we know our customers want to catch every play on the biggest screen possible,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, vice president of product management for Sling TV. “Integrating Sling TV into select Samsung TVs creates a seamless experience for millions of Samsung customers, so they can watch their favorite team without the hassle of installing additional equipment, additional remotes or switching inputs.”
Current Sling TV subscribers can log in to their accounts on Internet-connected compatible Samsung Smart TVs. New customers may sign up for Sling TV directly within the app on Samsung Smart TVs.
Sling TV is also available on select LG Smart TVs.
