Looking to juice up subscriber counts following this week’s national service launch, Sling TV has introduced device bundling deals for Roku and Amazon streaming sticks and players to customers who agree to prepay for three months of service. 

On the Roku side, Sling TV is offering 50% off the Roku 3, which regularly sells for $99.99, and alongside a “value option” for a free Roku Streaming Stick, which retails for $49.99.

In a similar vein with Amazon, Sling TV is offering a $50 discount on the Fire TV box (regularly $99), or a free Amazon Fire TV stick (regularly $39).

In tandem with the device deal, which was hinted at late last month, Sling TV also announced that its OTT service is now available on the Amazon Fire TV box and the Amazon Fire TV stick. TV Predictions spotted the device deals earlier in the day.

Sling TV also supports its service on Web browsers and iOS and Android-powered smartphones and tablets, and will make it available "soon" on the Xbox platform and the Nexus Player, the first streaming media player to support the new Android TV OS.

Among the current subscription packages, Sling TV’s core service sells for $20 per month, while add-on packs (Sports Extra, News & Info Extra, and Kids Extra) cost $5 per month each. Customers who don’t opt for the prepaid device bundle promotion can cancel the service at any time.
