Sling TV Receives A New Look On Roku And Apple TV

Sling TV has made a few changes to its display on Roku and Apple TV machines that might make for a better experience of viewing. The firm claims that the upgrades are in response to user feedback, and might make it simpler to filter through movies and shows. The tweaks are launching out to Roku consumers this week, and all Apple TV consumers by now might have the new interface.

For Apple TV, a new “data view” will rule the top 50% of your Sling TV display and allow you see info of a series as you hover over its title. The “On Now,” “My TV”, and “Guide” sections are now in your Sling TV screen’s center. Remember those irritating pop-up alerts that ask if you need to un-pause playing, start from the beginning, or watch live when you switch among channels? A new search bar allows you see trendy searches from other Sling TV consumers, and filters your search results into segments such as “shows,” “top searches,” and “channels.”

For Roku consumers, an updated data view will show a full-screen display and data about other shows. Upgraded player controls allow users pause, play, or record content. You can also turn on closed captioning and include series to your favorites.

On a similar note, Sling TV earlier lifted costs, and you will not be shocked if you are a sports fan. New users for the Sling Orange bundle now have to pay $10 monthly for the Sports Extra channel package rather than the earlier $5. Current users will see the cost hike go live from August 1, 2019, onward. That is the same cost that Sling Blue users were already giving for Sports Extra, but it also indicates that you are seeing at least $25 monthly when you mix the sports bundle with any base pack.
