Since socially distanced movie nights and television show marathons have become the norm, SLING TV's Watch Party beta couldn't have come at a better time. The feature enables users in remote locations to connect with each other via video and chat while streaming the same content. Up to four users can participate using Google's Chrome browser. Users who host a Watch Party can choose live or on-demand content from SLING service to which they subscribe. SLING is hosting a beta preview right now through September 30 that allows new guests to attend a Watch Party by creating a SLING TV account.
