Sling TV Gets Personal on Apple TV

Finding what you want to watch on TV can be hard. We’ve all been there and know how frustrating it can be. There are probably times when you may not even know what you want to watch and prefer someone just make a recommendation for you. We get it. Your time is valuable, and we want you to get to your show quickly. That’s why today we’re introducing the first of many new exciting personalization features—first on Apple TV—to make it easier than ever to find the content you love on Sling TV.

Starting today, select Apple TV users will see a new “Recommended for You” ribbon on “My TV” that will suggest live and on-demand shows, movies sports and news, based on the shows you watch the most. With this new ribbon, you’ll spend less time scrolling through content and more time streaming your favorite shows. And don’t worry, parents! The recommendations will also use any parental controls set up on the account, so you can have the peace of mind that your family won’t be able to access locked content.

The “Recommended for You” ribbon is just the beginning of more personalization updates to come. We’re working to improve personalization in the app and create a more engaging and interesting viewing experience, so you can expect Sling to debut more helpful features. In the coming months, we’ll be improving content recommendations and will have additional new features to make your browsing experience even easier.

Not an Apple TV user? These features will be available on additional Sling TV-supported devices in the future.
