Chromecast and Sling TV have partnered to offer an extended two month free trial of the online streaming service ($40 value). First time Sling customers with a Chromecast have until December 28th to grab a 60-day free peak at the Best of Live TV package. Simply visit this page to begin your trial. You’ll want to cancel the service before the two months is up, otherwise you’ll be charged $20 for the next month.

Typically, Sling only offers a 7-day trial, so if you’ve been holding out on trying this service, now is your best bet to give it a run. Offer does not include any extras or HBO service. Full terms and condition can be found below.

Starting in February, TiVo will be offering a new service for its users called OnePass that will strive to make binge watching easier than ever. The goal here is to put all of the available options of watching a complete season of a show in one place, in this instance the My Shows folder on your TiVo device. TiVo’s latest DVR devices have the ability to stream from services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus putting a larger supply of shows at your fingertips.

TiVo’s new OnePass service takes these options into account when searching out all the ways to catch up on a whole season. After investigating all of the streaming, live TV and other on demand options, TiVo will then list out the entire season within the My Shows folder. This is a particular strength of this offering in comparison to the Apple TV which does not feature universal search.

The new OnePass service from TiVo will be available in February on Roamio and TiVo Mini devices at no extra charge. Additionally, the service will also be available for via the iOS app next month and is expected for Android in March.
