We all love to watch our favorite TV shows, but we can all agree that cable TV is expensive and can be a pain to deal with. If you’re like us, you only watch a handful of channels out of the expensive cable bundle you pay for anyway. With that said, are you paying too much for TV?
Sling TV is an attractive alternative to cable or satellite and is allowing many people to “cut the cord.” Sling TV offers the same great shows without the costly bill at the end of the month, not to mention the expensive equipment that takes up so much room on your TV stand.
What is Sling TV?
There are several services that offer a choice over cable TV, however Sling is still one of the best ways to watch TV on the go. Said simply, it’s live TV streaming whenever and wherever. No contracts, no equipment, and no costly bills.
Sling TV allows subscribers to watch a collection of live and on-demand TV channels on their TVs, computers or mobile devices. This is live TV, just like a cable or satellite service, except it’s delivered over the internet. One way to think of it is that it’s like Netflix, but with live TV.
Where is Sling TV available?
Sling is available anywhere in the United States where there fast, reliable internet is present. That being said, it’s certainly available where Point Broadband is offered.
How is it different from my cable or satellite provider?
Depending on how much you pay for TV service, it’s probably cheaper. To use it, you’ll need a good internet connection, like Point Broadband, and a compatible device to run the Sling TV app, which takes the place of a cable or satellite box and connects to a TV. You can also watch on your phone, tablet or computer, either at home or away. The best part? Unlike cable or satellite, there are no contracts and you can cancel or resume service anytime, with no penalties.
