Sling TV has launched its live and on-demand Internet TV service on Apple TV. The OTT provider’s suite of services, including its single-stream, beta multi-stream, Sling Latino and Sling International offerings, are available to Sling TV customers once they download the app from the App Store on fourth-generation Apple TV.
“Delivering the best TV experience for our viewers means being on the devices people want to use — Apple TV is our most requested platform, and we’re excited to finally bring Sling TV to Apple TV today,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “Incorporating Apple TV innovations like touch with the Siri Remote will enable Sling TV’s new UI to deliver the highly polished experience Apple fans have come to expect.”
Also debuting today on Apple TV is Sling TV’s new user interface (UI). The updated UI offers a more customisable and personalised viewing experience and improves content discovery of the thousands of hours of programming available on Sling TV.
In the first phase of the new UI roll-out, Sling TV customers gain access to a new personalisation feature called “My TV,” which allows customers to select their favourite channels, resume watching where they left off on select programmes and set favourite shows and movies for easy, one-click access. Additionally, the new UI includes enhanced content discovery, improved navigation and the ability to easily access content based on genres.
Sling TV also launched 12 Viacom channels across its beta multi-stream and single-stream services, including Comedy Central, BET, Spike, MTV, Nick Jr. and many others.
