Amazon brings Sling TV to Fire TV, sweetens the pot with discounts

Dish's Sling TV streaming service is expanding quickly: Now it's available on Amazon's Fire TV gadgets, in addition to Roku devices, iOS, and Android. On top of that, Amazon is offering a pretty sweet deal. You can get its $39 Fire TV stick for free when you sign up for three months of Sling's service (which'll cost you $60), or opt for $50 off the Fire TV set-top box. Now that Sling TV is open to everyone, Amazon's deals will likely be tempting to many buyers. And really, having an extra streaming stick on-hand is always useful -- especially if you've got multiple TVs around the house. We had mostly positive things to say about Sling TV in our preview, and it's also adding new channels over the next few weeks, including AMC's portfolio.
