Default question for the slingers...(sling streaming service)

I am gonna ditch my Directv here soon. Looking at the myriad of streaming services. My head is spinning from reading all the options out there.

If I get the sling(orange) that allows multiple TV's to hook up. How do you do that? I have searched and not seen the technical side of it.

Is it a matter of getting 2 firesticks(one for each tv) and thus the sling service will go to both firesticks via WIFI once I register my sling account?

Yes. If you do not have smart tv's get a firestick for each tv. Then download the Sling app to the stick and use the same log-in account info for both.

We use HULU and have enjoyed it.

It is daunting at first, but very easy!

Just ask questions. I started new, and now have everything I want for $15/ mo! with 3 connections. It's $5 for each additional connection.

Most smart TVs have streaming capabilities built in. Otherwise you will need a steaming device for each TV. This can be fire stick, Apple TV, Roku and Iím sure there are others I am missing.

I actually like my Apple TV better than the Firesticks.

This is what we use. We have 3 separate Rokus throughout the house. We use the premium one on the main TV and then more basic ones on the others. So far we have not missed Satellite or Cable since switching to Sling.
