There’s no subscription fee for this all-in-one channel guide. Once you buy the device, you’re set!
Mohu Channels and it can be connected to any TV that has an HDMI port. In addition, there’s a USB 2.0 port on the device that allows you to add an external USB drive (flash drive or larger) to store apps and media.

If you’re excited to try the new Sling TV subscription service available from Dish TV, you’re in luck! Those who requested invitations to try Sling TV are receiving invites by email as I type.
I received mine and I’m looking forward to trying it via the FREE 7 Day Trial. They ask for a credit card to keep on file, as once the trial period is over, users are automatically billed for a 30 day time period.
There’s no contract for Sling TV and you can cancel your Sling TV subscription at any time.
In the FAQ on their site I found contact info and how to download the Sling TV app to my Roku 3. They have an email: [email protected] and a phone number 1-888-893-9069 if you want to ask questions before you subscribe.

The question remains…
Will Sling TV be a streaming media trend to dominate the internet TV landscape, or just a repackaging of the same old thing – charging for every ‘extra’ including channels and screens – ultimately boosting your TV bill once more?

When I got started using XBMC I was terrified of the interface. It seemed overwhelming. Admittedly there is a learning curve to it, and it does take time to get comfortable using it, but once you do, a whole new world in entertainment opens up.
