If you're a cord cutter, you no longer have to worry about buying a dedicated media player just to watch live broadcasts on your LG TV. Sling TV's internet-only service is now available on "most" of LG's 2016-era webOS sets as an app, with 2017 models due to get it in the months ahead. In theory, that puts internet -only viewing just a launch bar shortcut away.

This isn't Sling's first TV integration, but it's an important one. It's helping to create a future where you can assume that your TV set can handle any kind of live broadcast, whether it's online or from a cable box. And of course, it's important for Sling as well -- this opens the doors to people who might not even realize that Sling TV exists, or aren't willing to pay for a separate device just to get live channels.
