Sling TV Sets Free Preview This Weekend

As part of the celebration of its second year of existence, Sling TV is offering a free preview of the service to new customers this weekend, tied in with the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead on Feb. 12.

In a periscope event for SingTV’s second birthday, CEO Roger Lynch said the free preview – available on -- will also allow TWD fans to access AMC Network’s marathon of the zombie series, a big hit with Sling TV customers.

Lynch added that during this month (February) Sling TV will offer free previews of premium channels Home Box Office and Starz at different parts of the month. In addition, he added that digital video recorder capability will be available via Amazon Fire, Android Mobile and Android TV “very soon.” Following those launches, DVR capability will extend to Apple TV at a future date. Sling TV began beta testing DVR service via Roku (opens in new tab) in December
