Sling TV Aug. 15 launched an in-browser player on Google Chrome, according to a press release from Sling TV.
Available in beta for all new and existing Sling TV customers, Sling TV’s compatibility with Chrome enables customers to watch live and on-demand television directly in their Web browser, with no app download required. To start watching Sling TV content on Google Chrome, customers can log in to their account at sling.com and click “Watch Now” to view content from their browser on supported versions of Windows and Mac OS.
“The Sling TV experience on Google Chrome is not only fast, intuitive and incredibly simple to use, it also gives customers the added benefit of seamlessly starting live and on-demand television with a click of their mouse,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, vice president of product management for Sling TV. “Sling customers can stream their favorite can’t-miss content, like live NFL games or the next episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Sling.com without the hassles of downloading plug-ins or logging in to another device.”
The beta version of Sling TV’s in-browser player is available immediately on the latest version of Google Chrome-supported devices and operating systems. It includes features such as “My TV” and the “Continue Watching” ribbon, plus easy access to account settings, parental controls and more. Sling TV’s first in-browser player will continue to roll out additional features on Google Chrome, including DVR and grid guide.
Customers are encouraged to provide feedback about their viewing experience on Google Chrome to the Sling TV product team by emailing email@example.com.
