Sling TV Free Access

Sling TV is giving you a way to stay entertained while you're stuck at home. The new Sling Free plan lets you watch live news and a bevy of on-demand shows and movies without even needing to sign in!

Sling TV is already one of the most affordable streaming TV services to date with options normally starting at just $30 per month to score access to live TV channels on your smartphone, tablet, or streaming devices. Sling Blue and Sling Orange feature some of the same channels, though the biggest difference between the two is that Sling Orange includes various ESPN channels, FreeForm, and Disney Channel while Sling Blue includes FX, SyFy, BET, and more. There's also a plan which combines all the channels for just $45.

With Sling Free, you gain access to some live TV news channels including ABC News and Fox News, along with access to select other channels such as Buzzr the game show network. There's even more to watch on Sling Free though, as there's tons of on-demand content which you can watch whenever you'd like. You can watch full seasons of shows like Hell's Kitchen or Roseanne, as well as a bevy of kid shows, horror movies and other films. As a free Sling viewer, you can watch the channels and content available to you whenever you'd like.

A full list of Sling TV's channels can be found here; many of them come through add-ons of extra packages that come for an additional monthly fee, so you'll want to keep that in mind while browsing, as well as which devices Sling can be accessed on. Happy streaming!
