With a full stable of online streaming services like HBO Go, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and countless others able to stream movies, TV shows, and other content, Microsoft’s Xbox One is known for its capabilities as an all-in-one media center, and now Sling TV will be the latest to join the console’s selection of media streaming services.

Sling TV, the online streaming app dedicated to bringing a variety of cable network TV at a cheaper monthly price, is now available on Xbox One today, making it the first console for the streaming service to debut on. Xbox One owners can download the app for free and stream various programs and shows from Sling’s “best of live TV” pack that contains core channels such as ESPN, AMC, The Disney Channel, and others, alongside other incoming channels like A&E, The History Channel, and more to the service’s core $20/month package by the end of March.

Alongside the various cable packages starting at a baseline $20/month, Sling also offers various packages and bundles for an additional $5 a month, including additional sports content and networks, children’s programming, news channels, and movies/On Demand content.

Users on Xbox One can also sign up for an extended 30-day free trial with Sling for current owners, while typical Sling TV free trials are available for a one-week period. Special bundles will also be made available in the US that will pack in a three-month Sling TV trial alongside new purchases of Xbox One consoles through either Microsoft retail stores or the official Microsoft website.

Sling TV is currently available now to download on Xbox One.
