Sling TV comes to the Xbox One with a month-long free trial

‘Two out of three millennials think of themselves as gamers, while nearly nine out of 10 watch live sports on TV’

I’m really enjoying Sling TV so far, and today it hits the Xbox One, joining the Roku, iOS, Amazon Fire, and Android platforms. If you spring for it on Xbox One you’ll get one month free, and the first “5000 customers” who buy the console at a Microsoft store or MicrosoftStore.com before March 22 will get three months free.

Sling TV is basically a service separate from cable that nets you a number of channels for $20 a month, with a few extra special interest packages like sports, kids or news. The base package highlights include AMC, ESPN, Food Network, Travel Channel, CNN, and Cartoon Network, among others.

CEO of Sling TV Roger Lynch thinks the program will be a success, noting “Sling TV and Xbox are a natural pairing; two out of three millennials think of themselves as gamers, while nearly nine out of 10 watch live sports on TV.” We’ll see about that. While many people are keen on cutting the cord, there are still millions out there who can’t live without it — and with a limited amount of Sling TV channels featuring on-demand or live TV control, it may be harder for those folks to give it up.
