New Sling TV customers have access to an exclusive offer to purchase a 32GB Apple TV for $89 when they pre-pay for three months of Sling TV’s single-stream service or beta multi-stream service.

Additionally, the new UI includes enhanced content discovery, improved navigation and the ability to easily access content based on genres.
