The inception of DISH's new Sling TV service was one of the biggest stories coming out of this year's Consumer Electronics Show. With an affordable, no commitment alternative to a traditional cable subscription service many consumers are considering making the switch.
Amazon has been onboard with Sling's concept since the beginning and now the two companies are coming together for a joint promotion. For those who are willing to dish out the three months membership in advance, Amazon will offer either $50 off the purchase of an Amazon Fire TV or provide the lower-end Fire TV Streaming Stick completely free.
Not only is this a great deal for Sling TV subscribers, but these hardware options also open up an abundance of digital streaming services (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus) perfect for cord-cutters. For those interested in this offer, you can visit Amazon's promotional page for more details on how it all works.
