Roku users, we have some updates to the Sling TV app for you! Beginning today, we’ve made the Roku app more content-centric, so it’s easier to see the most popular content Sling TV offers, even if you’re not subscribed to it, add a package or channel to your account right from the app and get to the shows and movies you love more quickly.
If you’re a current customer on a Roku device, you’ll see shows from services and Extras you’re not currently subscribed to, identified by an “Add’ icon. This means you can upgrade your services and Extras directly from the shows and sports you want to watch. For example, instead of upgrading to “Sports Extra” from the “Add Premium Channels & More” ribbon, you’ll be able to upgrade based on the upcoming game in the Featured Sports ribbon.
If you’re a returning customer on a Roku device, you’ll see free content alongside a ribbon of shows and movies from the service(s) you last subscribed to, identified by a “Restart” icon. Clicking on that content will take you to a page where it’s easy to restart your subscription in just three clicks.
For example, if you last subscribed to Sling Orange, you may see “Better Call Saul” or “The Walking Dead” appear in the “Shows from Your Previous Subscription” ribbon.
Stay tuned, we’re working on more exciting updates to our Sling TV app on Roku, coming soon!
