Sling TV Available Today On Xbox One, All Members Get Free Month

In January, Microsoft and Dish announced a partnership to bring Sling TV to Xbox One. Starting today, cord cutters can start using the service via the console.

Xbox Live members are eligible for a free month of the live television service. Those that opt to cut the cord can do so for as little as $20 per month, which includes CNN, ESPN, TNT, Disney Channel, CNN, and more.

Add-on packages offer additional sports, movie, kids, or news channels for $5 per month each. The Sling TV app also includes a “three day replay” feature that allows you to watch aired programs for 72 hours after they’ve been shown live. 

For convenience, you can pin the app or specific video on-demand content to your home screen. This allows you to pick up right where you left off.

The app and the free trial are available now via your Xbox One console.

Correction: This story originally indicated that only Xbox Live Gold members are eligible for the free month. All members can take advantage of this offer. We have corrected the headline and body of the story and apologize for the error.
