Sling TV on Samsung Smart Televisions

7 Nov, 2017 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Sling TV Nov. 7 said it became the first over-the-top (OTT) television service available on select Samsung Smart TVs.

Sling, which was launched in 2015 by Dish Network as the first online TV service, will use access on Samsung to expand its leadership in device compatibility. Sling TV was the first to offer standalone access to ESPN.

“Integrating Sling TV into select Samsung TVs creates a seamless experience for millions of Samsung customers, so they can watch their favorite team without the hassle of installing additional equipment, additional remotes or switching inputs,” Jimshade Chaudhari, VP of product management for Sling TV, said in a statement.

Sling TV is now available on Samsung’s 2016 line of Smart TVs, and will roll out to additional models in the future. Current subscribers can log in to their accounts on Internet-connected compatible Samsung TVs. New customers may sign up for Sling TV directly within the app on Samsung Smart TVs.

“As viewers continue to embrace streaming live TV via apps, Sling TV is an obvious win for those who want to truly personalize their entertainment experience for the best value,” said Salek Brodsky, VP of content and services for Samsung Electronics.
