Cutting the cord just got easier. As of today, Dish Networks is opening up Sling TV, its new live cable streaming TV service, to everyone in the United States. No invite needed.
The service, aimed at “cash-strapped millennials” who aren’t up for pricey cable packages, officially launched Jan. 5, on an invite-only basis. Today Sling TV opened itself to the masses nationwide and is trying to lure customers in with a 7-day free trial. And, no, you don’t have to be a Dish Network customer to subscribe. (That would pretty much defeat the purpose, right?)
