Watching your favorite TV shows is relaxing and entertaining. But, it is more exciting if you are watching with your friends and loved ones. When it is not possible for you and your friends to come together and watch your favorite TV shows, Sling TV will give you a great solution.

Sling TV launched its co-viewing feature called the Sling Watch Party. Users can come together in an online room where they can watch and stream live TV together. It is like being in the same room and couch at the same time even if you are miles away from each other.

If you think that the Sling Watch Party is just like any other co-watching feature, Sling TV has something better for you. It comes with a text and video chat at the side of the screen, so you and your friends can talk and exchange messages while watching TV. The text chat is available on one side and the video chat on the other. You can also hide the text chat if you want.

When using the Sling Watch Party feature, it is best to wear headphones to get the most out of the experience. Another feature is the audio control that each user has not just on his or her audio but to a friend’s audio. You can choose to hear a friend’s comment by hovering to his or her video and adjust the audio bar.

Users of any Sling TV plans including domestic base services can use the Sling Watch Party feature.
