Our Opinion

Sling TV is also the best alternative, in terms of cost and channels to watch.

If you need TV just for a couple of hours each day, then Sling TV would easily serve your purpose.

Try Sling TV soon and turn your Xbox into a TV streaming box. However, there is not much upfront cost associated.

You can easily make up your mind with the 3-day free trial, although the 1st-month cost also is waived off from regular $35 to $10. Sling TV gives you a lot more time to try and test its services, also you can get rid of it easily.

You don’t sign an agreement for lock-in or contracts, thus easy to call it quits anytime at the end of the current subscription period.

Sling TV can be used not only on your Xbox One but also with many other devices.

If your Sling TV is not working, you can contact Sling TV customer care support.
