Sling TV announced today that subscribers with an OTA antenna can now watch local broadcasts on LG Smart TVs without leaving the Sling TV app. The new OTA channel integration brings free local channels from the antenna directly to the Sling TV guide.
The feature is available on 2020 LG Smart TVs with webOS 5.0, including LG OLED and LG NanoCell 4K and 8K TVs.
“The best value in TV today is SLING TV plus free live locals,” said Jon Lin, vice president of product, SLING TV. “We’re making it easier than ever to watch free local channels directly within the SLING TV app, making 2020 LG Smart televisions an amazing value for those who appreciate a quality viewing experience, live local programming and OTT content from SLING TV.”
Once enabled, Sling TV subscribers can access their local networks which may include ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS, directly from the guide. To find out which locals are available in your area, use the local channel finder tool. Just type in your street name and zip code, and click “View My Locals” to see list of available channels.
