Sling TV Releases New Interface on Xbox One, Partners with Microsoft for Pre-load

Working with our partners at Microsoft, we continue to make it easier than ever to start watching your favorite shows, movies, and sports on Sling TV. Today, we have two big updates:

New UI
Sling TV’s Xbox One user interface (UI) is getting a facelift! Available today, the latest update will give you a more personalized and customizable TV experience.

The new UI on Xbox One gives you the Sling TV experience you want. “My TV” is your new, personal home screen. From here, you can add your favorite networks to “My Channels” for one-click access to the networks you watch the most. We also make it easy to pick up where you left off watching with the “Continue Watching” ribbon. And, add your favorite shows, series, and movies for quick access in the ”Favorites” ribbon.

For quick access to everything currently airing, visit the “On Now” tab. Organized by genres like “Sports,” “Kids,” and “News”, you can browse and find what you’re looking for with a click of a button without scrolling channel by channel.

Sling TV customers love all of our great sports programming, including NHL Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, SEC Network, ESPN, and more. To get a quick view of all the games, matches, shows and sports analysis, visit the “Sports” tab. Looking for a specific game? This screen is organized by sport, so finding the big game is easier than ever.
