Dish Network-owned streaming service Sling TV announced today that it will finally allow the general public to sign up and watch live TV from a variety of networks from a Mac or iOS device (through the free Sling Television app), along with several other devices.

Sling TV offers plans starting at $20 (with $5 add-ons available for some networks) that includes streaming and video-on-demand viewing options for live TV networks that usually require a pricey cable subscription, such as ESPN, TNT, Disney, TBS, CNN, and many more.

Dish also announced today that within the next few weeks it will be adding a whole new lineup of channels owned by AMC Networks. Sling users will be able to stream shows like The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul from AMC, or Doctor Who and Sherlock from BBC America. The deal also includes content from networks like IFC and SundanceTV. Shows from AMC Networks will be available as part of the base $20 plan.

You can sign up for Sling through the iOS app or via on your computer.
