OTT service Sling TV has launched an in-browser player on popular web browser Google Chrome. Available in beta for all new and existing Sling TV customers, Sling TV’s compatibility with Chrome enables customers to watch live and on-demand television directly in their web browser, with no app download required.
“The Sling TV experience on Google Chrome is not only fast, intuitive and incredibly simple to use, it also gives customers the added benefit of seamlessly starting live and on-demand television with a click of their mouse,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, vice president of product management for Sling TV. “Sling customers can stream their favourite can’t-miss content, like live NFL games or the next episode of Game of Thrones on Sling.com without the hassles of downloading plug-ins or logging in to another device.”
The beta version of Sling TV’s in-browser player is available immediately on the latest version of Google Chrome-supported devices and operating systems. It includes popular features such as ‘My TV’ and the ‘Continue Watching’ ribbon, plus easy access to account settings, parental controls and more. Sling TV’s first in-browser player will continue to roll out additional features on Google Chrome, including DVR and grid guide.
