Microsoft has made its latest move in the ongoing effort to merge video games and entertainment fully, announcing a newly forged partnership with Sling TV.

Set to be available on the Xbox One in the coming weeks, Sling TV is a television service which covers all areas of the TV world, including live sports, VOD content, news programming and everything in between.

Available for $20 a month, Sling TV is a perfect, commitment free TV offering, allowing Xbox One users to tailor their television experience however they please – exclusively on the Xbox One.

Mike Nichols, Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox, commented on the recent partnership stating:

“We’re thrilled to partner with Sling TV as they bring this exciting new service to life, and we look forward to launching the Sling TV app on Xbox One in early 2015 as the first gaming console where the service is available. We’re committed to bringing great entertainment options to gamers and our relationship with Sling TV is an important milestone in that journey and in offering more choices to our Xbox fans.”

In addition to the announcement of the Sling TV’s availability on Xbox One, Microsoft has also confirmed that Xbox Live members will get a free, one month trial of Sling TV once the service launches.
