Apple TV adds Sling TV to give soccer fans more viewing options
With the launch this week of the Sling TV app on Apple TV devices, soccer fans in the United States can now access a wealth of soccer games from ESPN, FOX Sports, beIN SPORTS, Univision and more.
With Sling TV, you can choose between two streaming packages —
Best of Live TV: Includes ESPN, ESPN2 and many news and entertainment channels,
MultiStream: Includes FOX, FS1, FS2, FOX Sports Net (regional), FX, UniMas and many news and entertainment channels.
Plus, there’s a Sports add-on pack (additional $5/month), which includes beIN SPORTS and Univision Deportes to bring you more soccer coverage. Note, however, that you currently can’t combine the ‘Best of Live TV’ and ‘Multistream’ packages, so you need to decide whether you want or prefer ESPN’s or FOX’s soccer content. But once you’ve made that decision, you can add the Sports add-on pack for beIN plus Univision Deportes.
In addition to those soccer-specific channels, Sling TV offers a ton of other add-ons such as HBO as well as entertainment channels including AMC, TBS, Comedy Central, Adult Swim and many more.
In conjunction with Sling TV being added to the Apple TV devices, Sling TV has created a new offer where you can get a brand-new Apple TV for $89 when you prepay for three months of Sling TV service. Note that the Sling TV app is only available on the most recent version of the Apple TV box (4th generation).

In addition to the above news, Apple TV announced that an app for FOX Sports GO will be released later this year.
