Sling TV Launches On the Amazon Echo Show Devices

Sling TV launches on the Amazon Echo Show devices. With that being said, it means that Sling TV is now coming to the Echo Show 8 and Echo Show 10 two years after the company first promised to introduce it to all of the Show devices.

Finally, Sling TV is making its way to Amazon Echo Show 8 and 10 devices close to two years after the company initially promised that it would be bringing the app to all of the Echo Show devices available in its lineup.

And while Amazon did manage to bring Sling TV to the Echo Show 15 in the previous year, it never made its way to its other devices right up until now. The new addition of Sling TV apps now makes it very much possible to stream live TV as well as on-demand content right from the Echo Show 8 and Echo Show 10 devices.

Sling TV Channels

Sling TV as you should know has a lot of live channels that you can tune in to all depending on your subscription tier, and this is including Fox, TBS, ESPN, MLB Network, AMC, Discovery, NBA TV, and many more. There is also a free ad-supported streaming option that you can easily get access to known as Sling Freestream.

It is really nice that Amazon followed through on its promise to bring Sling TV to the Echo Show 8 and 10 finally, but it is however a bit late for a pair of devices that are released over two years ago now. And unlike the Echo Show 15, the Echo Show 8 and 10 don’t come with the new Fire TV interface, thus leaving them with a very small selection of streaming apps, such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. The Echo Show 15, on the other hand, as you should know comes with a wide range of streaming apps such as Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney Plus, and YouTube TV.

How the New Integration Works

You can now open the Sling TV app on the Echo Show simply by saying “Alexa, open Sling TV” and then logging in to your Sling TV account. And from there, you can navigate to specific channels simply and easily by saying things such as “Alexa watch CNN on Sling” while making use of voice commands to pause, play, and fast-forward content.
