By Aparna Jayan / May 26, 2021

Sling TV has always given importance to providing a better streaming experience to its customers. This is exactly what they accomplished with the new beta version of their app, which for the moment is available for some Fire TV users but it will be available on Roku devices as well starting this summer. The new version incorporates some major design changes and upgrades the personalization engine to help the customers discover the content more easily.

A prominent change was given to the app's home screen, which is now optimized to provide more customized services with the help of a revamped recommendation engine that also delivers favorite shows and recordings. The app also makes navigation more streamlined with the reimagined guide that can mark subscribers' favorite channels, filter and sort the guide order, explore more channels, and record a show easily.

The new update now has a DVR tab that is solely dedicated to managing the recorded content. Subscribers can easily add or delete the recorded content, which helps monitor the storage capacity.

Streaming live TV has also become hassle-free with the beta version, which makes skipping forward, pausing, and rewinding the content effortless. The Smart Search feature incorporated in the update narrows down the options, allowing users to find the exact content they are looking for, so navigating through over 150K on-demand Sling TV content has also been simplified.

In total, we can conclude that the new version of Sling TV gives a smoother streaming experience for the users. The new features added to the app are indeed useful for spending less time navigating the app.
