To take advantage of this offer, sign up for Sling TV at Sling.com/amazon and prepay for 3 months of service.

This offer is for new Sling TV customers only. If you’ve already signed up with Sling TV, you’ll have to create a new account to take advantage of this offer. The promo code you receive must be redeemed by June 5, 2015.
Existing Sling TV customers can contact Sling TV customer support and ask to be included in this promotion without having to signup a second time.
I gave Sling TV customer service a call, and even though I was already a subscriber, they were willing to give me this deal. They just adjusted my account to be under that promotion.
Since they are offering this promotion I’m going to give them a three-month trial.
Last time I checked they dont even have an app for FTV. Why the discount then?
Sam, See this post: http://www.aftvnews.com/sling-tv-app-released-for-amazon-fire-tv-fire-tv-stick/
Tahnks, Bruce. It is funny just last night I was trying to sideload an experimental apk for about an hour. Had I known they would release the official app in a matter of hours, I would have not wasted all that time.
This is pretty sweet!
Dumb question. How do I get the app on my Fire TV?
I’d try voice searching for “Sling TV app”.
So when they say an app is “available” they mean they already put it on there? Sorry, I have zero tech knowledge.
No, you still need to “purchase” it (free apps still require a purchase of sorts — there just isn’t a cost) and download it to your Fire TV, but the Amazon app store is integrated into the Fire TV’s user interface so you don’t need to go into a special app to access the app store.
Here’s a promo code for $15 off a Fire TV. Hope someone can use it.
I got the 3 months and got the stick for free. I’m kinda glad this came out. I was about to skip on sling TV but with this offer I felt it a good deal. free shipping on the stick was great too. I got this for the kids channels but would like discovery and history and geo with AMC it would be completely for me. Nick would be nice but my kids don’t watch it much when we did have cable back in the day. The stream is OK seems to cut off and get stuck every once in a while but other then that it works great. HD on most channels. I use the cell phone app and works great with it. Over all I give it 4 stars . 5 if given those other channels to make it complete
So as soon as installed the app on the Fire TV and signed up for the 3 month Sling TV service I was unable to connect to the service due to buffering issues. Here’s the response that I received from Sling TV support.
“We apologize for the technical issue that you are facing. Have you tried to uninstall/reinstall the app? If you are having the same issue, please call our customer service center between the hours of 8:00am EST – 1:00am EST, so that we can troubleshoot and resolve your issue.
In the meanwhile, try using the service on other compatible devices, or visit http://www.sling.com/faqs for basic troubleshooting information. ”
Really ? Uninstall/Reinstall the app and if that fails use another device ? Guess the app isn’t ready for prime time.
