Sling TV recently began work with its partners at Microsoft to provide users with an easy way to watch TV shows, movies, and sports programs via the over-the-top internet television service. Now Sling TV has announced two new updates to its offering: a fresh user interface for Xbox One consoles and an OTT TV service that comes pre-loaded on Windows 10 devices.

The redesigned UI for Xbox One now transforms the My TV view to the user’s personal home screen on the gaming console. This lets you add your favorite networks to the My Channels list for instant access.

The UI makeover also introduces a Continue Watching button that allows you to pick up where you left off on a certain show. If you want to gain quick access to TV shows currently airing, the On Now option has your back. That means you can search for shows organized by genres like “Sports,” “Kids,” and “News”, without scrolling channel by channel. Sling said in its announcement:

Sling TV customers love all of our great sports programming, including NHL Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, SEC Network, ESPN, and more. To get a quick view of all the games, matches, shows and sports analysis, visit the “Sports” tab. Looking for a specific game? This screen is organized by sport, so finding the big game is easier than ever.

Also, you can now gain quick access to your favorite shows, series, and movies through the Favorites ribbon.

Sling also announced that Sling TV will come pre-loaded the next time you purchase any Windows 10 device, complete with access to the full lineup of offerings such as Sling Orange, Sling Blue, the Best of Spanish TV, and Sling TV’s slate of international TV offerings.

You can also now customize your TV experience without long-term contracts. The Sling TV app is available for subscription from the Xbox Store with a seven-day free trial.
