Sling TV adds new tvOS app features

Sling TV announced Monday a number of improvements to its Apple TV app, making it easier for customers to access and stream content.

The new features include:

  • Grid or Image View – you can now easily toggle back and forth between grid view and image view within the channel filters, so you can quickly get to your channel guide of preference in one simple click. Simply select “Image View” or “Grid View” in the top left corner of your guide.
  • Sort A-Z – Apple TV users can now sort channels alphabetically, one of the more asked-for features of current users.
  • My Channels – while in the Sling TV channel guide, Apple TV users can now conveniently add or remove channels to their “My Channels” ribbon by hovering over a channel and holding down on the select key.
  • “Start Over” button – to start over a movie or show that’s already streaming, Apple TV users can select the “Start Over” button in their player controls, instead of rewinding something to the very beginning. This functionality is available on any content that can be rewound.

The Sling TV app is available for download from the Apple TV App Store. The service has been available on Apple TV since June of 2016 and currently starts at $25.00 a month with a seven-day trial.
