This week Sling TV quietly ended support for their apps on Mac, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Now if you want to watch Sling TV on these devices you will need to use the Google Chrome browser as your player.
If you open the old Sling TV app on these devices you will find this message:
“We’re focusing our efforts on adding new features to our newly launched Google Chrome browser player. If you haven’t tried it, our browser player is great because there’s no need to download an app—just sign in to sling.com to watch. ”
To stream Sling TV with Chrome all you need to do is go to the Sling TV website and click on the sign in button at the top right of their site. That will bring you to a user interface very similar to what you see with the old Sling TV app on Mac and older Windows PCs.
Sling TV did add that they “are working on bringing this to Safari browser.” Sling TV still offers a Windows 10 app in the Windows Store but Windows 10 users can also stream it with their new Chrome Browser option.
