Sling TV is a subscription streaming service that offers a wide variety of channels with live TV and on-demand content.
The service offers 50 channels on multiple packages, thousands of on-demand titles, the ability to stream on three devices at once, and 50 hours of DVR storage.
Here’s everything you need to know about Sling TV:
How much does Sling TV cost?
Sling TV costs $35 or $50 per month, depending on the plan you choose, with a subscription that can be canceled at any time.
While Sling TV’s lineup of channels doesn’t quite match Fubo or Hulu Live TV, it’s a lot cheaper than almost any other live streaming service. And streaming services closer to Sling TV’s price range, like Philo, don’t offer as wide a degree of customization between packages.
With Sling, you can choose to pay less to focus on certain types of content.
Does Sling TV offer a free trial?
Sling TV offers a seven-day free trial that doesn’t require much effort.
To register, all you need to do is enter a phone number, an email address and your credit card.
What channels are on Sling TV? What are the different packages?
Sling TV offers a wide range of live channels, with a focus on different packages, like nothing else in its field. Individually, Sling Orange or Sling Blue are $35, but if you combine the two, you’ll receive more chains for $50.
Sling Orange, for example, prioritizes certain family-friendly content and sports, especially NCAA football. Among its main selling points are channels like ESPN, ESPN2, Disney Channel, Freeform and Nick Jr.
Sling Blue, on the other hand, is the best entertainment package and puts more emphasis on current events. Some of its key offerings include Fox News, MSNBC, TruTV, USA, E!, FS1 and FX.
It’s also possible to bundle them with Sling Orange & Blue, which costs $15 more but offers all channels from both packages.
Of particular note: CNN is in all packages, making Sling one of the few places to watch a live stream of the massive news network.
The list of 50 channels is available here.
Does Sling TV have movies?
Sling TV offers access to a sizable library of on-demand content, although the selection and length of its availability varies widely. The main focus is on programming that has recently aired on Sling’s TV channel offerings.
