The Sling TV app for Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick became available today, and with that launch, so did the Sling TV deals for Roku and Amazon streaming devices.

On the Amazon site the hottest deals are the Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick, and the Sling TV app.

A link on each product’s page allows Amazon shoppers to go to the Sling site to purchase a 3 month subscription to Sling TV service; prepaying for the service, which unfortunately is not refundable if you don’t like it.

Once you pay for your subscription after setting up a Sling TV account, you get a unique Amazon code to use on the Amazon site at checkout. If you put an Amazon Fire TV Stick in your cart and enter your code, you get the Fire TV Stick for FREE!

You also have the option to get the Amazon Fire TV at 50% Off with the same promo code, but you can’t buy more than one device.

Soon after Amazon’s Sling TV deals showed up this morning, Roku got into the game. Roku offered similar deals on the Sling TV site, but not on their own website at the time of this writing.

Links to both the deals pictured can be found at the bottom of the Sling website’s homepage. You can also find links to the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick deals on the Amazon website.

After using Sling TV apps on both my Amazon Fire TV Stick and Roku 3 today, I can say I’m impressed with the service.

While the channels aren’t all my favorites (I’d love to see Bravo and FX join the mix) and it would be fantastic if at some point we could choose our own channels individually – say a basic package with a choice of 10 channels from say 100 basic offerings – it’s still a nice package for live TV that’s not obtained via an over-the-air HDTV antenna.

Cord cutting affords you the freedom of choice. Today, I choose Sling TV with a Mohu HDTV antenna, and I’m happy and saving money. I may change my mind, but the beauty of it is that I’m not locked into a contract, so I can.

Sling TV deals will continue and the service will evolve.

How exciting is that?
