Sling TV will make cable and satellite bundles a thing of the past, because the new service offers live TV from a group of small, select (and eventually, personalized) channels in a subscription-based monthly package that will cost only $20 a month.

On Monday Dish introduced it’s brand new service, Sling TV. And since then, it has already started revolutionizing the industry.

Sling TV will make cable and satellite bundles a thing of the past, because the new service offers live TV from a group of small, select (and eventually, personalized) channels in a subscription-based monthly package that will cost only $20 a month.

Marketed specifically towards millennials who refuse to buy cable TV, because of streaming and boxes like the Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire. So instead, Dish has created the “perfect complement” to these services.

Sling TV will feature major media channels like ESPN, ESPN2, Disney, TNT, TBS, CNN, ABC Family, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, Adult Swim, and Cartoon Network. There will also be a channel entirely for Maker Studios. All those will set you back $20 a month, and if you want “add-on packs” for additional bundles, it will cost $5 more for a Kids Extra, or a News & Info Extra pack.

It is missing some major networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox. However, this new service is designed for people that already receive most of their shows and news from outside the TV, such as millennials that surf the internet.

Sling TV will be a single-stream service, so only one device will have access to a stream at a time. If you’re watching a show on your iPad, and your husband turns it on through the Apple TV, it will be shut down.
