Sling-TV-Best of CES-2015

If you’re a cord cutter like me, this is your moment. Sling TV is now available without an invite, offering a live TV experience over the Internet for as little as $20 per month.

In case you missed it, Sling TV was announced last month at CES 2015. The basic package includes a pretty decent selection of channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, Disney, ABC Family and CNN. As an added bonus, Sling managed to score a deal with AMC Networks, which includes the company’s namesake channel AMC, along with BBC America, IFC and more. For an extra $5 per month you can also upgrade to get extra sports, news or kid-friendly channels.

Sling TV also works on a ton of different platform out there, including your desktop browser, iOS and Android devices, and Roku, with support for Fire TV, Xbox One, Google’s Nexus Player and other devices coming later. We had a chance to check out the service ourselves briefly. It’s pretty sweet, though it may not be enough to replace your cable subscription altogether.

If you’re interested just head to Sling’s website, where you can try the service with a seven-day trial before paying a cent.
