Xbox will carry Sling TV, Dish’s new ESPN (and friends) web TV service

Xbox has signed on to Dish’s effort to defeat the cable bundle.

Consumers who don’t want to sign up for dozens of cable channels already have range of a-la carte options, from Netflix to Hulu to old-fashioned broadcast antennae, to watch their favorite shows. What they didn’t have, until now, was a way to see live sports carried on cable behemoth ESPN without opting for the full cable package.

Satellite TV provider Dish on Monday unveiled a $20-a-month service, called Sling TV, that offers to beam ESPN (along with TNT, CNN and a mini-package of channels) to internet-connected devices. Those devices, Dish says, will range from laptops to tablets, internet-enabled TVs made by Samsung and LG, as well as Xbox and Amazon.com’s Fire.

Dish has a press release on the matter, and the folks at Xbox weighed in to note Xbox users can get a free month-long trial of the service.
