Sling TV announced on Tuesday that it now officially supports the Google Chromecast on Android and iOS devices.

Once you have the latest Sling TV application installed, you’ll be able to load up your favorite channel and then cast that content directly to any display connected to a Chromecast or Google Cast-enabled device, such as the NVIDIA SHIELD TV. Once the content starts casting, you can use your smartphone or tablet regularly, without worrying about interrupting the stream to your television.

To celebrate, Sling TV is offering up a free two-month trial of its “Best of Live TV” package to new customers who own Chromecasts. Also, customers who decide to sign up for that package and pay for three months up front are eligible to receive a free Chromecast device.

Mac and Windows casting support is coming later, Sling said.
