Sling TV Deals

Sling TV is already cheap, but CableTV.com has found a few more ways to save money on the service.

Current Deals: 

  • $10 off your first month
  • Free AirTV Mini
  • Free and discounted Locals Bundles

Besides being one of the least expensive and most customizable livestreaming TV services around, Sling TV is also all about dem deals. Where other streaming services offer various discounts and bundle options, Sling TV will hook you up with physical gear—and who doesn’t like gear?

The following deals are available on all three of Sling TV’s plans: Orange, Blue (both $35 a month), and Orange + Blue ($50 a month). Pick your color swatch and get streaming.

$10 off your first month

If, after your three-day free trial, you decide that Sling TV is the livestreamer you’ve been looking for, you can get $10 off your first month of service. This means the Orange and Blue plans will cost $25 initially and Orange + Blue, $40. Regular rates apply when the month is up.

Free AirTV Mini

Prepaying for two months of Sling TV service allows you to grab a free AirTV Mini streaming dongle, a small HDMI plug-in similar to a Chromecast. Sling TV says the AirTV regularly goes for $79.99, which we think is a bit steep for such a simple device—but free is free.

Free and discounted Locals Bundles

Sling TV doesn’t carry many local channels in most markets, which is why it’s practically evangelical about supplementing its streaming channel lineups with an antenna. Local over-the-air broadcast channels are free, and so are the digital HD antennas Sling TV includes with its Locals Bundles:

  • Basic Locals Bundle: Get a free digital HD antenna (regularly $44.99) when you prepay for two months of Sling TV service.
  • Bonus Locals Bundle: Get a digital HD antenna and an AirTV 2 antenna device for $49.00 (regularly $149.99 total) when you prepay for three months of Sling TV service. The AirTV 2 is a DVR/tuner that interfaces with a digital antenna and integrates local channels into Sling TV.
  • Better Locals Bundle: Get a digital HD antenna, an AirTV 2, and an AirTV Mini for $99.00 (regularly $224.95) when you prepay for three months of Sling TV service. This setup allows you to watch on three TVs: local channels on two, and Sling TV streaming on one.
  • Best Locals Bundle: Get a digital HD antenna, an AirTV 2, and two AirTV Minis for $149.00 (regularly 304.92) when you prepay for three months of Sling TV service. This setup allows you to watch on four TVs: local channels on two, and Sling TV streaming on two.

Sling Free

Sling TV offers a super-skinny version of its livestreaming service at zero cost: Sling Free, a mix of live news channels (like ABC News Live and CBS News) and dozens of linear “loop” channels featuring 24/7 shows and movies (similar to Pluto TV and Xumo). You don’t even have to register—just use the Sling TV app or a web browser and look for “Explore Free Content.”

There are also some live sports and on-demand movies and shows on Sling Free, though you’ll find many of them labeled with a “Subscribe” tag (meaning not free). Still, you can watch a whole season of HGTV’s Home Town for free, as well as hundreds of semi-obscure movies (2003’s Death Train, anyone?).

Sling Free also allows you to subscribe to the same premium add-ons as regular Sling TV, but you’ll have to pay for those. The same goes for movie rentals through Sling Free, but at least they’re current and you’ve heard of them.
