After months of anticipation, viewers finally got to see what Dish Network’s OTT (over-the-top) service plans will be. The Satellite TV company announced they will offer Sling TV later this month for about $20 per month.

Sling TV will be a basic service that offers about 12 channels, including some of the most popular channels on Cable TV, including ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network and CNN.

Furthermore, Dish’s Sling TV will play on numerous mobile devices as well, including smartphones and tablets using Apple’s iOS operating system or Google’s Android system. Sling TV will also bring those Cable TV channels to other streaming devices, like Roku and Xbox One.

The service will be offered for free at first, while the company continues their beta testing on the product.

Roger Lynch, the CEO of the new Sling TV division of Dish Network, tried to impress the difference between Sling TV and other Pay-TV options delivered through OTT services. “Pay-TV is a saturated market, and frankly a declining one,” he told a crowd at the 2015 CES press conference Monday. Sling TV’s new national advertising slogan will be, “Take back TV.”
