The power of the Internet has made everything possible, so much so that it’s even seeped into other technological advances made before its advent. Remember how cable and satellite TV was a breakthrough achievement serving home viewers multiple-channel options on a platter? And then came the Internet that took the world by storm. Who would have thought that the technological boom would one day replace the cord TV channels with digital streaming of your favorite TV shows over the Internet? And not simple streaming, live streaming of your most sought-after programs which you can now watch on your PC, laptop, or even smartphone!
Welcome Sling TV, one of the many OTT (Over The Top) services that allow live TV watching on the Internet. And we say “one of the many” because it’s not the only contender to becoming the future of live digital streaming for millions of viewers across the globe. There are a number of such online services that are already quite popular; the likes of Netflix and Amazon need no introduction. Yet, Sling TV scores over its counterparts such that it exclusively offers Live TV services.
