Sling TV Will Give Non-Apple Cord Cutters HBO Access Too

Apple’s exclusivity arrangement for the HBO Now standalone streaming service hasn’t been broken…technically. Apple TV will still be the only streaming set-top box to offer the app. But the deal has surely gotten a little dinged now, thanks to Sling TV.

The Dish TV-owned company announced Wednesday that it too will offer HBO as a $15 add-on to its cord-cutting service. The announcement, likely the product of broader programming negotiations between its parent company and Time Warner, promises that the new service will arrive in time for the season opener of Game of Thrones in a couple of weeks.

The news finally brings non-Apple users into the HBO-streaming fold, without requiring cable subscriptions. But the HBO Now app and the Sling TV service are not exactly the same. The former doesn’t offer the streaming live TV channel, whereas HBO on Sling TV will, along with video-on-demand (VOD) titles. The latter also works on various devices—from the Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Xbox One, to computers, iOS gadgets and Android devices.

The difference (sort of) preserves Apple’s “exclusivity” agreement, but it also means consumers will have to weigh various pros and cons for different services that essentially deliver the same programming. Here’s an overview to help you sort through it.

HBO By Any Other Name Is Confusing As Heck


HBO comes in numerous forms now beyond the stack of TV channels. These versions cover HBO Go (the streaming app for cable and satellite subscribers), HBO Now (the streaming app for cord cutters) and the HBO’s VOD catalog, which comes on numerous cable or satellite set-top boxes and may or may not involve streaming.

Sling TV’s offering mimics HBO on traditional pay TV set-tops. According to a Sling TV spokesperson, “[customers] will have access to the linear channel and the same VOD content such as original series, hit movies, original HBO Films, groundbreaking documentaries, sports, and comedy and music specials.” Neither HBO Go nor HBO Now offer live TV, only a streaming library of VOD entertainment.

Also like cable service: You won’t be able to subscribe to the one channel alone, like Apple TV users will. You’ll also need a subscription to Sling TV’s “Best of Live TV” core package, which starts at $20, before you can add the HBO (for $15) to the mix.

That’s a total of $35, which is still cheaper than a cable subscription, but also more limited in programming. The package includes 20 channels—including ESPN, AMC, A&E, TNT, History Channel, TBS, Food Network, CNN and Adult Swim—VOD titles and add-ons, including HBO. As for streaming it live, there’s only one HBO channel, not the numerous variations available on cable, like HBO2, HBO Signature, HBO Family, HBO Latino and others.

For the money, user also won’t be able to stream on multiple devices simultaneously. HBO Now users, however, can have three simultaneous streams on various devices going at once.

Game Of Streams


HBO’s Richard Plepler at the Apple Watch event.

HBO CEO Richard Plepler told CNBC’s “Squawk Alley” on Tuesday that the company joined forces with Apple on HBO Now because HBO Go has been a huge hit on its TV streaming box.

The Apple TV, which has offered HBO Go since 2013, now accounts for 60% of the app’s traffic, according to the executive. He has high hopes now that the streaming set-top will also help his company reach a key audience: millennial viewers. “We think HBO Now is something of a millennial missile,” he said. “We think this is a terrific opportunity to earn 10 million broadband-only homes in the U.S., and that’s largely a millennial audience.”

Of course, to reach a younger audience, it would behoove HBO to set up shop on as many streaming devices as possible. The company has apparently found a way to do that, without breaking its three-month exclusive launch agreement with Apple. Just bending it a little.


HBO on Sling TV is not technically HBO Now. Cablevision will be the first pay TV service provider to offer that app, but even it’s expected to roll it out early this month, it’s not really a streaming provider, per se, and not a maker of set-top boxes. So depending on how the deal was worded, Apple’s arrangement may still stand.

Looks like they all wanted to rush in to make the Game of Thrones deadline—even if it meant playing their own games to get there.

It’s A Free Speech Christmas! Sony To Give “The Interview” A Limited Release


This holiday season, would-be freedom fighters in limited markets will have the opportunity to stick it to some vague concept of “The Man.” In a move that isn’t so much as a  Christmas miracle as an excellent opportunity to take advantage of the publicity generated by comedy that received lukewarm reviews in advance screenings—yet possibly inspired an historically devastating corporate cyberattack—Sony Pictures Entertainment announced it will show the assassination comedy in select movie theaters starting on Dec. 25. 

This is an about-face from last week, when Sony declared it wouldn’t release The Interview after bomb threats caused major theater chains to cancel showings. Despite the movie’s plot—characters played by James Franco and Seth Rogen are tasked by the CIA with assassinating head of state Kim Jong-un—North Korea denies responsibility for both the threats and the hack that leaked a mountain of embarrassing Sony emails and documents on the Internet.

That’s poppycock according to the U.S. government, which claims evidence that North Korea is behind the attack. President Barack Obama promised retaliation shortly after Sony announced the movie’s cancellation, and coincidentally or not, North Korea suffered a mass Internet outage of nonspecific origins on Monday. 

On Tuesday, with news that Sony would contract with some theaters to show the Interview, Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton said in a press statement that the studio always intended to show the movie in some capacity.

“We are proud to make it available to the public and to have stood up to those who attempted to suppress free speech,” Lynton said, though it’s not clear whether or not the irony is intended. Continuing its threats to hold news agencies “responsible” for publishing Sony documents freely available on the Internet following the breach, the multinational corporation is reportedly threatening to sue Twitter if it doesn’t suspend users sharing hacked content on its platform. 

The New York Times reports that Sony will likely release The Interview in 200 to 300 smaller theaters. So far, the 30-theater Alamo Drafthouse chain (pretty much the only place to see a movie, in this reporter’s opinion) and the Plaza in Atlanta are confirmed. 

Perhaps Sony can use the box office proceeds to bolster its free speech legal fund, and maybe put what’s left over toward shoring up its firewalls.

8 Big-Hearted Tech Gifts That Give Back


<em>Editor’s Note: This was originally published by our partners at <a href=”http://www.popsugar.com/tech/Tech-Gifts-Give-Back-32768331″>PopSugar Tech</a>.&nbsp;</em>

Is there anything better than giving someone a present they truly love? Wh,y yes! Gifting them with something they love that also contributes to a worthy cause. C out eight gifts that are practical, stylish, and best of all, charitable.

Stone + Cloth Backpack


The Lucas Backpack by Stone + Cloth ($74) is not only stylish for everyday use and offers a padded sleeve to protect laptops, but the company also donates a portion of each sale to The Knock Foundation, a group based in Kilimanjaro that provides scholarships to communities in need.

Mophie RED iPhone Case


There are so many reasons to love this RED iPhone 5 case ($120)—the ruby color, the fact that it comes with a juice pack air case for when your battery runs low, and most especially, the fact that five percent of the proceeds go to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS.

Mend 13-Inch Laptop Sleeve


Handmade in Uganda, this laptop sleeve ($25, originally $59) isn’t just gift-worthy for its sleek look. The case was created by the organization Invisible Children to help empower women affected by the Lord’s Resistance Movement conflict.

Vers 1Q Speakers


Your friend or family member can jam to her favorite tunes thanks to this wireless wooden speaker ($130) with Bluetooth that remembers up to 10 devices. Even better, the company will match your $1 donation to the Arbor Day Foundation if you choose to do so at checkout.

(PRODUCT)RED by Apple




Buy the PRODUCT(RED) edition of the iPod Shuffle ($49), iPod Nano ($149), iPod Touch ($199), iPad Air/iPad Mini Smart Cover ($39), iPad Air/iPad Mini Smart Case ($69-$79), iPhone 6 Case ($45), or iPhone 6 Plus Case ($49), and Apple will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Global Fund, which fights AIDS in Africa. The scarlet-hued PRODUCT(RED) versions do not cost more than the other color options.

USB Hubdog


A portion of every item you buy from The Literary Site Store—like this USB Hubdog ($12)—funds new books for children in need. How cute and practical is this powerful pooch?

Ona Sahel Camera Strap


Ona, the purveyors of fashionable camera accessories teamed up with charity:water for the Sahel Camera Strap ($99), which sends $30 of each leather strap’s proceeds to the charity’s operations.

LSTN Headphones


Double points for LSTN Headphones. Not only are the music accessories made from reclaimed wood, but the company partners with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to donate a portion of proceeds to helping people hear music for the first time. We especially like the Troubadour collection ($130 each) for its unique shapes.
