Sling TV today announced that it's getting a deeper integration on the Google Nest Hub displays, including the new Nest Hub Max.
Here's the gist:
One caveat here: While Chromecast has (and continues to) work just fine, the deeper Nest Hub integration is waiting on a little server-side action from Google, so that you can directly connect your Sling account just like any other supported third-party account. If you use, say, Spotify, with your Nest Hub, that's exactly what we're talking about. Same thing. (And then there's the matter of actually onboarding folks — Google already has instructions for that, though.) Sling tells us that should happen over the next few days, so hang in there.
After that? You'll be able to say things like "Hey, Google — watch CNN on Sling TV" to your Nest Hub, and it'll plop it up on the screen, just like it can currently do with YouTube TV. Very cool.
The big boy
A great big little screen
The Nest Hub Max is a great addition to a any room that could use a display — but maybe not something as large as an actual TV. Plus it doubles for video calling and audio playback.
Pay for (mostly) what you want
Sling TV isn't quite true a la carte TV, but it's closer than anyone else, which lets you watch more and spend less.
