Since its debut at CES in 2015, Sling TV has gone through a series of evolutions, to become a viable option for those who want to live without the ties of a cable service, but who also seek to watch live TV. Recently, the platform added more channels and a variety of options to its packages. But not happy with that, now Sling TV also entered the world of virtual reality (VR).
Indeed, Sling TV became today the first distributor of virtual multichannel video programming (vMVPD) to launch in Oculus Go, the independent wireless virtual reality lenses. As the company explains, the experience of Sling TV on Oculus Go is equivalent to watching content on a 180-inch TV.
"You don't have a big screen? You don't have space?" No problem! said Jim Chaudhari, director of product management. Sling TV on Oculus Go gives customers an incredibly large screen and high resolution experience wherever they have a Wi-Fi connection, without the need to connect to a phone or PC.
As part of this offer, for a limited time, customers who purchase and activate a new Oculus Go will receive a $ 80 dollar credit for Sling TV subscription services, and an Internet connection and download of the Sling application is required TV to access the service. The owners of an Oculus Go will see Sling TV available in the app store from today. If you want more information about this offer, you can find it on its official website.
Although the selection of Sling TV channels was quite basic at the beginning of the company, it has been reinforced regularly, and the channels it now presents are quite popular. The service also offers on-demand videos of some of the channels on your list, as well as movie rentals. Best of all, Sling TV does not require a registration fee or contract, and you can try it for free for a week before deciding if it suits you.
This latest release expands the footprint of Sling TV devices, as Oculus Go joins more than 17 compatible platforms, including smart TVs, tablets, game consoles, computers, phones, streaming devices and now, reality lenses virtual.
