Sling TV app released for the Amazon Fire TV & Fire TV Stick


It took a bit longer than expected, but the official Sling TV app has been released for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. You can still sign up for the $20/month service at and receive a 7 day free trial. Learn more about Sling TV through my past posts.

    Dumb question, how does it show up on my current Fire TV? Can I just do a search for it, or do I need to update the Fire TV somehow?

      If you download it thru the Amazon App Store, then go to your Settings -> My Account -> Sync on your AFTV/Fire Stick.

      Or as I mentioned in the other topic you can use the Fire TV’s search function to find it and install it on your Fire TV (or Stick).

    I can’t get this to work, I have an AFTV bought from the USA and am using it with Unlocator’s smart DNS, when I try to install Sling it says something about “purchase information cannot be found” (I’m assuming because of my non USA IP), and I can’t find the proper APK to install, I downloaded a normal Android one but when I launch it it starts loading but never gets anywhere :(

    I signed up to the 3 months discounted trial to Sling TV as a means to buy the AFTV for $49 instead of $99.
