ENGLEWOOD, Colo., September 17, 2020 – SLING TV today launched a new professional installation pilot program for cable cutters in select U.S. markets, making it easier than ever for Americans to receive local over-the-air (OTA) channels, such as ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, for free via an HD antenna. Residents in Albuquerque, Detroit and Salt Lake City can now choose from three “Total Live Streaming Solution” bundles, complete with a professionally installed HD antenna and streaming equipment, including the award-winning AirTV Anywhere.
Customers can call SLING TV directly at 855-567-1424 to determine eligibility, sign up and begin saving hundreds per month over cable by switching to SLING TV and an OTA solution.
“Making the switch from cable to live streaming has never been more enticing, and SLING TV is simplifying the process while making it accessible to more Americans,” said Michael Schwimmer, group president, SLING TV. “The new professional installation pilot program and Total Live Streaming Solution bundles allow customers to enjoy the best cable has to offer at the best price, including free locals, without the setup hassle.”
