Sling TV Launches On Windows 10

Following the reveal of Sling TV earlier last year at the Consumer Electronics Show, also known as CES 2015, the Sling TV LLC subsidiary of Dish Network has officially announced that its live and on-demand internet television service will now be expanding to Windows 10-based machines.

In addition to the core Sling TV features like watch live sports, popular kids shows, hit series, breaking news, acclaimed movies, and more, the new application for Windows 10 will be featuring:

  • Live Tiles – Easily see content from “favorites” and “continue watching” ribbons when Sling TV is pinned to the start menu
  • Cortana Voice Integration – Quickly search for specific shows or channels by voice with Cortana, Microsoft’s personal digital assistant
  • Vertical Menu – Windows 10 users will feel right at home with a vertical main menu on Sling TV
  • Responsive User Interface – Sling TV on Windows 10 uses a responsive UI, so the video automatically adapts to different sizes and snaps the app to use only half of the screen
  • Touch Compatibility – Sling TV works on both touch and non-touch Windows 10 devices
Current Sling TV customers can download the Sling TV app directly from the Windows Store, while new customers can sign up for a Sling TV account from the app when they download the Sling TV app for free on a Windows 10 PC or tablet.
