Sling TV, Dish Network’s live streaming television service, has finally gained support for Google’s Chromecast. The ability to use the live streaming service with Chromecast has been one of the most-requested features ever since Sling TV’s launch back in February, and now it’s finally here. The update is now rolling out to both Android and iOS versions of the app, and the folks at Sling TV say that Windows and Mac users will soon get the functionality on their laptops.
There are a handful of pretty great deals that come along with this news, as well. For a limited time, new customers will be able to prepay for three full months of Sling TV and receive a free Chromecast. If you need a refresher, Sling TV costs $20 per month and includes tons of the most popular TV networks such as ESPN, AMC, Food Network, A&E, History Channel and many, many more. So considering that you’ll get a free Chromecast that’s valued at $35, this seems to be a pretty great deal.
Alternatively, if you happen to be a new Sling TV customer and have access to a Chromecast, you can take advantage of a free two-month trial of Sling TV’s “Best of Live TV” package. If you’d like to redeem that offer, head over to the Chromecast offers page here.
