Dollar for dollar, Sling TV is one of the most affordable services on the market offering a large selection of both live channels and on-demand streaming content.
Like most streaming platforms, Sling TV does provide a free trial period for new subscribers to test the service before you commit to paying. With that said, the conditions of the free trial tend to change often. Right now, new subscribers can receive a three-day trial period if they sign up through select devices.
Sling offers other bonuses for new subscribers as well, including an introductory discount or free device bundles. Here’s a full rundown of all the Sling TV offers and deals available right now.
New Sling TV members can get $10 off their first month
For a limited time, Sling is offering a $10 discount on the first month of service for new members. This brings the price down to just $25 for your introductory month. The promotion also includes one month of Sling’s DVR Plus upgrade, which offers 200 hours of DVR storage.
Subscribers can choose between Sling Orange or Sling Blue, and you must provide an email address and credit card when you sign up. After your first month, your subscription will continue under the regular $35 monthly price unless you cancel. If you want to keep the DVR Plus upgrade you need to pay an additional $5 a month.
Does Sling TV offer a free trial?
Sling’s website does not currently include a free trial option, but the site has offered a three-day trial in the past.
People who sign up for Sling through the Sling TV app on select devices, however, can still receive a three-day trial. The app is available on most smart TVs and media players, including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Chromecast.
You can get a free AirTV Mini or antenna if you prepay for two months of Sling
If you don’t want a discounted month or free trial, new members can opt for a free device instead.
You can opt for a free AirTV Mini when you prepay for two months of Sling. The AirTV Mini streaming device typically costs $80 and you can use it to watch Sling and other apps on your TV. The AirTV Mini can be paired with an AirTV 2 and an antenna to add local programming.
Finally, subscribers who just want a simple solution to get local channels can get a free antenna ($45 retail value) when they prepay for two months. Though an antenna by itself won’t integrate with your Sling app, it will let you watch local channels that aren’t included with Sling, like ABC and CBS, through your TV.
Sling offers discounted AirTV 2 and AirTV Anywhere bundles if you pay for three months
In addition to the TiVo Stream 4K and AirTV Mini offer, Sling currently has several other packages that’ll get you discounted devices if you prepay for three months at the regular price.
For $49, you can get an AirTV 2 ($100 retail value) and an antenna ($45 retail value). For $99, you can get an AirTV 2 ($100 retail value), an antenna ($45 retail value), and an AirTV Mini ($80 retail value). For $149, you can receive that same bundle with a second AirTV Mini.
Finally, if you want to record local channels with a built-in DVR, you can opt for a $99 bundle featuring an AirTV Anywhere and an antenna ($245 retail value).
