Cord cutters everywhere have been eagerly waiting for the release of Sling TV ever since Dish Networks announced the television streaming service. The service has been invite only for a while now so only the lucky have been able to experience it but now Dish has opened the floodgates and unleashed the cord cutting glory on the world.
Sling TV, the online TV streaming service from Dish Networks, is now available to everyone: The service ended its invitation-only soft launch late Sunday night and began to accept sign-ups from everyone on its website. Sling offers consumers live access to a total of 15 channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, CNN, HGTV, Cartoon Network and others for $20 a month. New to this basic package are Galavision, El Rey Network and a channel for Maker Studios content, which had been previously announced but initially wasn’t part of the invite-only beta test.
