If you’re switching from cable or satellite TV to streaming, Sling TV’s channel lineups will look skinnier than Machine Gun Kelly on a juice cleanse. Even the combined Sling Orange + Blue plan is missing several popular channels, like Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, and CBS Sports Network.
You can get those channels, and nearly a hundred more, with Sling TV’s Extra add-on packages, which range from $6 to $11 more a month. Check out our Sling TV channel lineups and add-ons guide for the full picture (better hydrate first—it’s a big list).
Sling Orange has ESPN, ESPN2, and Stadium sports channels included in its plan, and Sling Blue has FS1, NBC Sports Network, and NFL Network. That’s not an impressive sports lineup, even when combined into the Sling Orange + Blue plan.
Fortunately, Sling TV’s add-on packages are here for you, sports fans: Sling TV’s Sports Extra package delivers 26 more sports channels, including NBA TV, Pac-12 Network, and beIN Sports. For just $11 a month, this bridges the sportsball gap nicely.
Sling TV would rather give or sell you an over-the-air antenna than pay for the rights to stream most local ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, The CW, or PBS stations. This keeps Sling TV’s costs down and, as they say in the pizza biz, they pass the savings onto you.
Sling TV does carry NBC and FOX stations in some markets, but only in the Blue and Orange + Blue plans. However, with Sling TV’s AirTV setup, you can use an antenna to integrate over-the-air channels into your on-screen guide. It takes a little more effort but works seamlessly once hooked up.
