You Can Now Stream HBO On Sling TV For $15/Month
People in the US genuinely know two ways to access HBO: one way is to subscribe one of the expensive TV packages and the second is to make a request for an HBO Go password to a close friend or a kinship who paid for subscription. Both are not very simple: former requires money and latter demands a serious diplomacy.
We tell you watching HBO will become very simple in very near future, thanks to Sling TV. Starting this month, the famous Dish service will offer cord cutters, a video-on-demand content from HBO. Time of the offer is very important as in this very month, people are waiting for “Games of Thrones” premiere.
Sling will offer the services for $15 per month, the same amount for which Apple is expected to launch HBO exclusively on its devices. Sling TV won’t limit cord cutters in premises of selected devices. In fact, they will be allowed to watch HBO on Android Tablets, iOS devices, Roku set-top-boxes and many other gadgets including Amazon Fire TV and PCs with Sling TV’s app. Apple and Sling will both offer online as well as on-demand content.
Sling, however, is offering HBO for one condition: you must subscribe for “Best of Live TV” for $20. But service provides you chance to see some of the famous channels including ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, A&E, TNT, History Channel, CNN, and others. Additionally, Sling TV presents you with couple of optional packages that you can chose to your aesthetics.
CEO of Sling TV, Roger Lynch, has confirmed the deal.
“Sling TV is bringing HBO to our customers on all of our supported devices in time for one of the most important TV moments of the year, HBO delivers hit shows and movies that TV viewers crave, and with this addition we’re adding another heavy hitter to a lineup that includes ESPN, AMC, TNT and more,” Lynch said.
Why is Sling’s offer so important? Because for three months, people with non-apple devices will not be able to watch HBO as it has signed an exclusive deal for three months with Apple. After this period, however, HBO will launch its standalone streaming service for $15 per month.
