If you can’t wait for HBO’s stand-alone subscription service, HBO Now, to come to the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, then Sling TV has you covered. The over-the-top streaming television service has just added HBO to their line-up of ever growing extra channel packages. You’ll still need to subscribe to their $20 per month base service to add HBO, but it’s now the only way to watch HBO on the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick without a traditional cable subscription.
In addition to adding HBO, Sling TV has updated their Fire TV app to improve stability and add features. The app now offers parental controls as well as mini guides that are intended to make it easier to find shows based on subject and genre.
Due to Sling TV’s lack of contract, customers can pay $35 a month for Sling TV+HBO and cancel when Apple’s exclusivity on HBO Now ends. For those interested, Amazon is still offering $50 off a Fire TV or a Free Fire TV Stick when you commit to 3 months of Sling TV.
