Benefits of Sling TV
With this new device, there’s one more reason to not buy overly expensive cable packages. The Google Chromecast makes it almost too easy to surf the internet and stream video directly and wirelessly to your TV. All in all, Sling is an addition that makes the Chromecast not only more competitive while still remaining affordable, but it also offers customers with current cable plans an opportunity to switch out.
