Sling TV today announced its app for the Android TV platform which now puts this over-the-top internet TV streaming service on all devices running Android TV, including the Nexus Player by Google. To commemorate this collaboration Sling TV and Google are launching a promotion which will put the Nexus Player in customers’ hands for half price. It’s similar to the promotion that Sling TV and Amazon ran when the app for the company’s Fire TV platform was released a few months ago.
Under this promotion customers can purchase a Nexus Player at half price provided that they pre-pay for three months of Sling TV. Those who don’t want to do this, or already have the Nexus Player, they can try out Sling TV on the set-top box free for seven days. A subscription to Sling costs $20 per month.
Sling TV app is now available in Google Play for all devices running on the Android TV platform. The internet TV streaming service is already available on smartphones and tablets, Macs, PCs, Roku, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
It has also been announced today that ESPN Deportes has been added to Sling TV’s “Deportes Extra” add-on pack. All Sling TV users can subscribe to this add-on pack for an additional $5 per month in order to gain access to the channels in the Deportes Extra pack.
