Sling TV Makes Jump To Windows 10

If you willingly — or were pushed to — update to Windows 10, you may have been missing your Sling TV app. That won’t be an issue anymore, as the cord-cutting service has launched a new app specifically for the operating system. 

Dish Network-owned Sling TV announced today that it launched the service for Windows 10 PCs and tablets.

The service, which is available through a new app in the Windows App Store, was tailored specifically for the operating system’s features.

Sling TV will continue to support its app for PCs running older versions of Windows software and will be available on additional Windows 10 devices in the coming months.

The new app will include Sling TV’s recently debuted interface, as well as features unique to Windows 10. Those features include searching for specific shows or channels by voice through Microsoft’s personal digital assistant Cortana, and use of Window’s “live titles” to display options such as “favorites” or “continue watching.”
