Sling has been running a number of promotions to try and keep people at home, and the latest from the streaming service is a new Happy Hour Across America (opens in new tab) promotion. The idea here is a little different, but it's pretty cool. Basically, Sling TV (opens in new tab) is offering free access to its streaming service from 5 p.m. EST through midnight EST daily so you can tune in after work and connect to the news at no cost to you.

Sling's group president Warren Schlichting said:

"Since we can't serve you a beverage or basket of hot wings, we're introducing a new kind of happy hour – TV 'on the house' every night. Much like a real happy hour, TV is often a shared experience. So grab your favorite refreshment, tune in with your friends and family, and get those group chats ready."

Getting started is super simple. All you have to do is visit Sling's new sign up page (opens in new tab) and get started. Like some of the previous promotions, you don't need a credit card to use the service, so it really is free. Of course, if you end up liking Sling, you can sign up for a monthly plan at just $20 for the first month and $35 a month after that.

The promotion gets you access to Sling's Blue service, which includes 50 live channels, a free DVR, and access to lots of on-demand programs. With this promotion, you'll be able to catch new seasons of several shows, including:

  • Deadliest Catch (Discovery) season 16 premiere – Tues., April 14
  • Property Brothers: Forever Home (HGTV) season 3 premiere – Wed., April 15
  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Bravo) season 10 premiere – Wed., April 15
