Since launching at last year's CES, Sling TV has focused on supporting more devices and expanding its content portfolio. Now, the cord-cutter-friendly service is revealing a major redesign, one that's all about putting your favorite movies and TV shows front and center, rather than fixating on specific network channels. The new myTV tab, for example, lets you easily access your most recently watched programming and other favorited items, which blends nicely with that newly improved guide. Sling TV says the fresh UI boasts is more contextually aware too, as it can adapt to your behavior based on time of day, location and platform you're using.

Moreover, Sling TV also announced the addition of ESPN3 to the "Best of Live TV" bundle, something that's going to please hardcore sports fans -- though it won't be coming until "later this quarter." Similarly, Sling TV's revamped look won't be rolling out until sometime in Q1 2016, but at least now you know it's on the way. That said, it's worth noting this is meant for devices including the Xbox One and Roku, so expect it to appear a bit different on mobile devices.
