Just found out about this today - a new online streaming service offered from Dish Network for $20/month, *including* ESPN, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, and more.

Sling webite here: Click Here (sling.com)

I am super enthused to hear about this, as the channels listed cover most of my family's TV consumption. My main question would be around what (if any) on-demand services they have. It looks like initially only a few channels will have shows available for up to 3 days for viewing.

If they have the app available on PSN by college football season, I just might buy in.

If you dig around the site, you can find a reference to On Demand Content, but it's probably wouldn't be so hidden if it was actually really good.

That's a feature I'd like (or just general DVR capability) and I'd need to know how well it actually holds up and there's a few more channels I'd like to have - but at $20/month, this is so cheap that maybe I could just cover the other channels other ways.

I don't think this is for me right now, but I hope it does great (and/or people think it does great) because it so obviously changes the market.

This is Xbox only. Playstation will be coming out with their own service called Vue which will basically have all of the channels Sling doesn't, basically all channels under the CBS/Viacom, Fox and NBC Universal umbrellas. Sling got Disney and Time Warner. Once Vue gets released I'm considering getting both as together would pretty much get me all the channels I need and would still probably be cheaper than cable.

I got my special beta invite last week. It had 7 days free. Then the stupid thing goes public today...

I think this and Hulu could get you through without cable, if you had good antenna. I didn't get CBS last time I had the antenna up, so I'm passing for now. Still, if I can get basic cable for networks + this for under $50... it would be tempting.

Thanks a bunch! Now I've got that running through my head, along with all the other cheesy (likely Cancon) cartoons this was grouped alongside with in the 80s. Namely, Wizard of Oz, King Kong and Hercules .
