If you haven't given Xbox Game Pass a shot yet, Microsoft is making it more tempting to do so. Customers in the United States can now get one free month of Sling TV when they sign up for the first month of Xbox Game Pass for $1.
If you're not familiar with it already, the Xbox Game Pass gives you access to a library of games which you can access at no additional charge, as long as the subscription is active. The collection of games increases at least once a month, having added We Happy Few, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and The LEGO Movie Videogame earlier this week. It typically costs $9.99 per month, but new subscribers can get the first month for just $1.
Now, thanks to the partnership with Sling TV, that first month also includes a live TV service with access to over 150 channels, including AMC and ESPN, plus over 80,000 on-demand TV shows. The offer includes both the Sling Blue and Sling Orange plans, which normally cost $40 a month. Once the free month ends, you'll be charged the regular price of a subscription, so the offer doesn't extend beyond that first month.
The offer is valid until January 30, according to the blog post, though the official Game Pass website states that it's applicable to purchases through January 26. It's also only applicable to new subscribers of both services.
