Sling TV Introduces In-Browser Viewing

Sling TV Logo

Today Sling introduced the launch of an in-browser player in Google Chrome. This player is currently in beta and is available to all new and existing Sling TV customers. This compatibility with Chrome allows customers to watch on-demand and live tv directly in their web browser. There is no download, app, or plug-in required.

Google Chrome delivers an instant, seamless in-browser viewing experience. Customers can download Chrome and begin streaming Sling TV content on supported versions of Windows and MAC OS. Sling continues to be one of the primary leaders in the cord cutting niche.

Not all features are available but the company says that the new grid TV guide and Sling TV DVR will be available in a later version release. The web browser does include several popular features such as the “Continue Watching” ribbon and the personalized “My TV” section. Access to Search and your Setting is also available.

From the Sling TV release:

  • No plug-in or app download required – Sling TV customers using Google Chrome can simply go to their account on and click “Watch Now” to start watching their Sling TV channel lineup.
  • Compatible on Windows and Mac OS – Using the latest version of Google Chrome, Sling TV customers can watch content in browser on compatible Windows and Mac OS.
  • Includes popular features – Sling TV on Google Chrome includes popular features like “My TV” and the “Continue Watching” ribbon. Plus, we’ll continue to roll out additional features on Google Chrome, including DVR and grid guide.

Customers are encouraged to provide feedback about their viewing experience on Google Chrome to the Sling TV product team by emailing [email protected].
