How can I get Sling TV free for 30 days?
In response to COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, Sling TV briefly offered a 30-day free trial period in 2020. The free trial has since been discontinued, but the limited channels Sling Free is still available with no sign-up.
What is the cheapest Sling TV package?
Both Sling Orange and Sling Blue, Sling’s cheapest plans, cost $35 a month. Sling Orange is designed for families and sports fans; Sling Blue offers more channels and is geared toward entertainment and news. For more details, check out our Sling Orange vs. Sling Blue guide.
Do you have to pay for Sling TV on Roku?
Sling TV’s Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue plans aren’t free through Roku or any other streaming device. You can, however, stream Sling Free with the Sling TV app on Roku and other devices.
Which Sling TV plan is best?
We like the Sling Orange + Blue plan because it features the most channels, over 50, for $50 a month. But, if you just want a single $35 Sling TV plan, there are differences to consider:
- Sling Orange carries more sports and family channels (like ESPN and Disney), but has fewer channels overall (30+).
- Blue has more channels (45+) and leans more toward entertainment and news channels (like Syfy and MSNBC).
- Sling Orange or Sling Blue can be customized with channel add-on packages (like sports, kids, movies. etc.), so it’s really just a matter of what you’re into.
Sling’s Total TV is a deal for new customers that adds a 500-hour cloud DVR and seven Sling TV Extras packages (Sports Extra, Comedy Extra, Kids Extra, News Extra, Lifestyle Extra, Hollywood Extra, and Heartland Extra) to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, or Sling Orange + Blue at a discount. Sling Total TV for Orange or Blue is an extra $21 a month, or $27 a month extra added to the Orange + Blue plan.
Sling TV previously offered a “4 Extras Deal,” which included Kids Extra, News Extra, Lifestyle Extra and Comedy Extra for a discounted total of $12 a month, but it expired in February 2021.
