Sling TV Supported Devices

The best thing about Sling TV is its device coverage. You can of course stream on the web through your Mac or Windows computer, but most every popular streaming device is supported. There are native apps for iOS and Android, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, a handful of smart TVs, and Xbox One consoles.

The full list of options includes:

Sling TV Simultaneous Streams

With Sling Orange, you’ll get just one device stream per account. Unfortunately, you also cannot increase this. This actually makes Sling TV a bit more limited for UFC fans than it was when Fox Sports was the UFC provider, given Sling Blue allows 3 simultaneous streams per account.

To learn more about Sling TV’s simultaneous streams, click here.

Sling TV DVR

Sling TV also does not come with a cloud DVR for the cost, but you can purchase a 50-hour DVR for $5 per month. That means if you want Sling TV’s channel package with UFC, as well as DVR, you’ll pay $30 per month.

To learn more about Sling TV’s DVR, check here.

Sling TV On-Demand Library

With Sling Orange, you’ll likely want to take full advantage of the on-demand library. As you’ll get one device stream per account, you’ll want to turn to the thousands of hours of TV shows, movies, and sports content you can get on-demand through the service. Your Sling TV account with also pair with several individual websites and apps for additional content.

Watch UFC on AT&T TV Now

AT&T TV Now offers a package of channels in a similar fashion to PlayStation Vue. And while it’s slightly cheaper, it misses the mark when it comes to features.

AT&T TV Now Pricing and Packages

AT&T TV Now provides multiple channel packages, but emphasizes its marketing on its cheapest-two options:

  • PLUS: 40+ channels, $50/month
  • MAX: 50+ channels, $70/month

You’ll find ESPN comes with either “Plus” or “Max”, so either will work, depending on what additional channels you want. 

To learn more about AT&T TV Now’s pricing and packages, click here.

AT&T TV Now Channels

Outside of ESPN, AT&T TV Now’s basic two packages include local broadcast networks, a selection of popular entertainment and news channels, and both come with HBO. 

Click here to learn more about AT&T TV Now’s channels.

AT&T TV Now Supported Devices

You can stream directly through apps for iOS and Android, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, several smart TVs, web browsers, and more.

Here’s a full list of available apps:

  • TV streaming media players: Apple TV (4th gen and up, 5th gen and up for 4K), Amazon Fire TV (2nd gen and up, 1st gen for Cube), Chromecast (2nd gen and up), Roku (most models)

  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android (5.0 and up),  iOS (10 and up), Amazon Fire (tablets)

Click here to learn more about AT&T TV Now’s supported devices.

AT&T TV Now Simultaneous Streams

You can get 2 simultaneous streams per account, which we stated earlier is pretty standard across the industry. And you can add a third for $5 per month extra, which is actually a good deal considering other services charge a bit more to add on more streams.

To learn more about AT&T TV Now’s streaming policy, click here.

AT&T TV Now DVR

If you want cloud DVR, you’re really in a bad position with AT&T TV Now. The service only offers a 20-hour cloud DVR, and it also imposes a 30-day expiration date. To help compensate, you will get a 72-hour rewind similar to what fuboTV offers, but it hardly makes up for the weak DVR option.

Click here to learn more about AT&T TV Now’s DVR.

AT&T TV Now On-Demand Library

AT&T TV Now boasts heavily of a large on-demand library. Part of that is because AT&T TV Now is owned by AT&T, which itself owns a fair number of the channels in its package. Still, you’ll get thousands of hours of movies, TV shows, and sports on-demand, and your AT&T TV Now account information works with numerous TV Everywhere apps and channel websites.

PlayStation Vue Channels

PlayStation Vue also offers access to entertainment channels, news, and a plethora of more sports networks. For example, the Sports Pack add-on includes NFL RedZone, several regional sports networks for Fox Sports and NBC Sports, NESN, Stadium 1-3, YES, Goal Line, Outside TV, and ESPN Classic.

PlayStation Vue Supported Devices

The biggest confusion with PlayStation Vue is the name. You don’t need a PlayStation to use it, although you can, of course, use it on PlayStation 3 and 4 consoles. But you can also stream directly from your Mac or Windows browsers, or from dedicated apps for popular streaming devices like the Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or on iOS or Android.

The full list includes:

  • TV streaming media players: Apple TV (4th gen and up), Android TV (all gens), Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick (all gens), Chromecast (1st gen and up) and Roku (firmware 8.0 and up)
  • Smart TVs: Amazon Fire TV (all gens), Android TV (all gens) and Roku (firmware 8.0 and up).
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android OS 5.0 and up, iOS 9 and up, and Amazon Fire HD6 tablets and up
  • Game consoles: PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge are recommended (most recent versions will work)

PlayStation Vue Simultaneous Streams

Through this service, you’ll get 5 simultaneous streams. That’s far more than you get with every other service on offer, with the exception of Hulu’s Unlimited Screens add-on. But with PlayStation Vue, you’re getting that without having to pay extra. You’ll also get 10 user profiles per account.

To learn more about PlayStation Vue’s simultaneous streaming policy, check here.

PlayStation Vue DVR

Each of those user profiles will get to enjoy their own, unlimited 28-day cloud DVR. Unfortunately, PlayStation Vue will only save your recordings for 28 days, but you can still record an unlimited amount number of shows during that time.

PlayStation Vue On-Demand Library

PlayStation Vue offers a wide selection of on-demand content from the channels available in its service packages. The larger the package, the more TV shows, movies and sporting events you’ll get on-demand. Not all content from every channel is available, however, but your PlayStation Vue account information can be used to log in to numerous TV Everywhere apps and individual channel websites.

UFC Fight Pass

UFC Fight Pass will carry every major UFC event, but in the US, it won’t carry the main event for many of them, which is unfortunate for cord-cutting UFC fans. In some other countries, like Germany, Fight Pass actually carries entire fight cards. However, you can use Fight Pass to watch the entirety of past UFC events, so it’s a good option if you’re unable to watch events live.

The service is $8.99 per month and offers a 7-day trial.
