Sling is one of the best live TV streaming services on the market for essential networks, making it a good option for anyone who wants a cheaper alternative to cable without compromising channel selection. The service has two main packages with over 30 channels each, and they both start at $40 a month.

Though it has fewer channels in its base package, Sling TV remains less expensive than competitors like YouTube TV ($73/month), Hulu + Live TV ($77/month), and Fubo ($75/month). You can watch Sling TV on iOS and Android devices, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and many smart TVs from popular brands.

Sling TV Subscription

For just the essentials without any extra fluff, Sling TV is the streaming service you’re looking for. It’s more customizable than other plans, with three options you can choose from, so you pay for only what you need. New members get their first month for $10 off.

What channels are included with Sling Orange and Sling Blue?

Sling’s two main offerings are Sling Orange and Sling Blue. Channels largely overlap between the two plans, but there are a few differences that might push you to choose one over the other.

Sling Orange has 32 channels, including several Disney and ESPN networks you won’t find on Sling Blue. Meanwhile, Sling Blue makes up for its lack of Disney and ESPN with up to 42 channels, including a collection of Fox-owned and NBC-owned networks like USA and Bravo. Blue also comes with local NBC, Fox, and ABC networks, but only in select markets.

Each plan is available to stream for a starting price of $40 a month ($45 in some regions), or you can combine the two for a starting price of $55 a month, giving you access to up to 49 channels. Sling also has genre-based add-ons starting at $6 a month. Each add-on offers a mini-bundle of related channels. There are also several premium add-ons, including Showtime ($10/month) and Starz ($9/month). 

Sling doesn’t offer a free trial, but they have a separate ad-supported “Freestream” service and a frequent 50%-off deal for new members. You may want to compare these deals and services with other platforms that show free movies online.
