ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Starting today, Amazon customers can access their favorite live entertainment and on-demand content through TV sling on the all-new Echo Show 15. The launch extends SLING’s reach to Echo Show customers and gives existing SLING users more flexibility and control over how they enjoy live TV.
Users can launch the SLING app by saying “Alexa, launch SLING TV” or “Alexa, open SLING”. Once in the app and logged into their SLING account, users can request specific programming by saying “Alexa, watch ESPN” or “Alexa, tune to CNN”.
For added convenience, users can access any channel directly from the Echo Show home screen after their first login. All they have to do is say “Alexa, watch ESPN on SLING TV” or “Alexa, tune to CNN on SLING” to start watching or control their content by asking “Alexa, pause” or “Alexa, resume” . “Beyond live TV streaming, SLING users can access up to 150,000 on-demand movies, TV shows and more.
“Echo Show gives SLING users valuable solutions like voice control via Alexa,” said Seth Van SikelSVP Product and Operations, SLING TV. “With SLING, Echo Show can operate more like a traditional TV with linear channels. It bridges the gap for cord cutters so they can go about their business, whether it’s cooking meals in the kitchen or work out, without missing a second of their favorite live sports, news and entertainment.”
The launch begins with Echo Show 15 and will roll out to more Echo Show devices in the future, allowing SLING to reach more users across the United States. SLING offers one of the most convenient ways for users to watch the content they love, where they want, and on their terms with a wide range of device options. Now, for a limited time, new and returning customers can check out SLING for free.
