With Sony PlayStation Vue set to shutter today, Dish’ network’s rival virtual MVPD service, Sling TV, is making an aggressive play for the 500,000 soon-to-be former Vue customers who no longer have a live-streamed pay TV bundle.
“As Playstation Vue customers search for their new live streaming home this week, I wanted to share a few new customer offers,” read an email sent this afternoon by a Sling TV press rep.
Sling TV’s aggressive promotional offers include the following:
>$10 off first month of Sling Orange, Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue
> A free Amazon Fire TV stick ($39.99 value) with two months of prepaid Sling TV subscription
> A free OTA antenna ($44.95 value) with a prepaid subscription for two month
> A free AirTV Mini ($79.99 value) with a prepaid subscription for two months
> An AirTV Mini, AirTV 2 and OTA antenna for only $99 ($225 value) with a prepaid subscription for three months
