Years ago, Sling TV had one of the most impressive interfaces of all streaming TV services. But the navigation system and channel guide have lagged a bit, leaving customers begging for an update. That highly anticipated redesign is here, my fellow couch potatoes, and it will debut on Fire TV devices this summer.
A notification will appear explaining the redesign in the Sling TV app on Fire TV devices. It states that the new Sling TV experience is “simple, beautiful, and more personalized,”
Some of these features were alluded to earlier this year. In an interview with The Streamable, Sling TV Group President Michael Schwimmer stated that the company was “deep in the middle” revising its channel guide, and that several personalization features would make their way into Sling TV. These personalization features are likely inspired by other services and platforms, such as Netflix or Chromecast with Google TV, that teach your preferences to provide you with better content and streamline the app’s navigation process.
Still, we don’t know what the Sling TV redesign looks like or what new features it offers. The Sling TV update will be rolling out to Fire TV devices this summer, with support for all other devices “later this year.”
