Sling TV has released a brand new app for some Android TV users, including Chromecast with Google TV

Currently, Sling TV is offering new users $25 OFF their first month of service, meaning you can try it out for just $10 for your first month, perfect to stream NFL preseason action on NFL Network. Sling has been adding other useful features for Chromecast with Google TV users, becoming the first Live TV Streaming Service besides YouTube TV to be integrated into the native “Live” Guide. When you first open the new Sling TV Android TV app, you’ll be taken to “Home”, which has been renamed from “My TV”. Immediately, you’ll notice that everything just pops just a bit more. The new app has much more vibrant images representing shows, with top and trending channels now appearing prominently at the top.

Following its release on Roku devices and extension on Fire TV devices, the all-new Sling TV app is now available to certain Android TV users. Some users of Android TV devices, such as Chromecast with Google TV, will begin to see the new app experience today, while the others will see it over the coming several weeks. In May, we received a first peek at what would eventually be a revamped Sling TV interface for all major devices, focusing on simpler navigation, improved personalisation, an updated grid guide, and quicker access to your content. Following the release on Roku and Android TV, it will be available on additional platforms such as Apple TV later this year.

My favorite change to the overall interface is the more intuitive way to navigate around the app. In the old Sling TV app, there were tabs across the top with access to “Guide”, “Sports”, “On-Demand”, and “Search.” In the new app, however, navigation shifts to the left side of the screen, with the addition of a “DVR” button in place of “Sports.” This subtle addition of the “DVR” button is a game-changer. Previously, you had to scroll to a “My DVR” section on the home screen to access your recordings, now it is just one click away.

When we asked Sling TV users in February for their most requested feature, they told us that they wanted a new “Grid Guide.” Some of the elements they brought in from their improved guide on Apple TV from last year, like the ability to quickly mark a channel as a favorite.
