Sling has formally announced that it will offer HBO content on their newly launched streaming service, Sling TV.
Although it was thought that Apple would have exclusive access to HBO content, it looks like Sling TV will also offer HBO content in the near future. While an exact date has not been announced, Sling TV ensures that it will have HBO content on its service in time to watch the April 12th season premiere of "Game of Thrones". This will be excellent news to some, knowing that they will not be required to purchase an Apple TV in order to subscribe to HBO service.
Naturally, Sling TV subscribers will have the same type of access to HBO's content as those subscribed to HBO GO. Along with acclaimed series like True Detective and The Wire, subscribers will also have access to movies like the Fast & Furious 6 and The Lego Movie. You will still be required to sign up for Sling's basic service which is priced at $20 USD a month. HBO access will be an additional $15 on top of that. Currently, Sling TV can be viewed on a variety of streaming boxes and the Xbox One.
