One of the mentions in Monday's Apple WWDC keynote was the addition of Sling TV, a subscription service that brings over 20 popular channels to your device for $20 per month. With this news came the announcement of a promotion that new subscribers can receive a 32GB Apple TV for $89 when three months of service is paid for in advance ($60). This is a $209 value as the device itself sells for $149. You're basically receiving a free three month trial with a purchase of an Apple TV.
Sling TV offers over 20 channels in its base package that includes ESPN, HGTV, TBS, TNT, and more. You can add up to an additional 65 channels such as HBO, Cinemax and more. If you ve been looking to cut the cord, this is a great way to get started. Use the provided link to take advantage of this offer. Note some users report having accessibility issues with this app as it currently stands.Source: Go to source
Nice. The cable industry in the US needs some disruption, and it sounds like Sling would make a pretty good mark. You add this, plus netflix, and Hulu Plus, and you're still paying less than what the cable companies want to charge these days.

Hi. I was very interested in Sling TV, but unfortunately neither the iPhone nor the Apple TV app is accessible with Voiceover. I just wanted to post that here to spare anyone the disappointment. Here is a link to a thread on AppleVis discussing Sling TV: http://www.applevis.com/forum/general-chat/sling-television-accessibility Please write to them so that maybe someday we can enjoy this service! Take care.

Bought it and now I guess I'll turn off Sling after the 3 months are up.
