In honor of tax season (ugh), highly praised streaming service Sling TV has slashed the prices of its base packages by 40 percent. That means you can gain access to hundreds of shows for as little as $15 per month.
The Sling TV deals cover all three of the service’s base packages, allowing you to pick the one that works best for you and your budget. Here’s everything you need to know to get started.
Current Sling TV deals
- Get Sling Orange OR Sling Blue for $15/mo for three months (regularly $25/mo)
- Get Sling Orange + Blue for $25/mo for three months (regularly $40/mo)
For a limited time, new subscribers can take advantage of these Sling TV deals and not only cut the cord but the size of their monthly subscription price too! Instead of paying $25 a month for Sling Orange or Sling Blue, you can secure the package for just $15 a month for three months. And for those of you who hate choosing, Sling TV even has something just for you. New subscribers can grab the duo (Sling Orange + Blue) for just $25 a month for the first three months–earning you a total savings of $45.
Debuting in 2015, Sling TV is a service that lets you stream your favorite live TV channels on your smart TV, smartphone, streaming devices, or game console. One of the most common complaints about cable packages is the glut of channels offered that you don’t actually care about. For instance, you could be paying $70 a month for 200 channels, while you probably only watch 20 of them. Sling TV cuts your channel offerings down to just the most popular options. You can also get a selection of local channels.
One of Sling TV’s biggest selling point is the number of devices it can be utilized on. Here are all of the ways you can stream Sling TV:
- Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Sticks, Amazon Fire Tablets, and Amazon Cube
- Apple TV
- Android TV
- Google Chrome
- iOS and Android mobile devices
- Certain LG smart TV models
- Roku including Roku TV
- Your desktop or laptop computer
- Xbox One
Once considered Sling TV’s entry-level package, a price increase in June 2018 made Sling Orange cost the same as Sling Blue. For $15 per month for the first three months (and $25 a month after that), you get big-name basics along with a few niche options, such as Bloomberg, IFC, and Viceland. There’s still plenty of clutter (Cheddar Big News, Mewsy, AXS TV), but Sling Orange is one of the best ways to watch ESPN without cable, and you get essential channels like CNN, AMC, HGTV, and plenty more. Note: You can only watch Sling TV on one device at a time with the Sling Orange package.

The Sling Blue package removes some options (most notably Disney, ESPN, and Freeform) and gives you access to more news (Fox News, NBC) and sports channels (FS1, FS2, and the NFL Network), and local channels. You can watch Sling Blue on up to three devices simultaneously. It’s one of the best ways to watch FX online without cable, and in select markets, you’re able to watch Fox, NBC, Fox Sports, and NBC Sports.

As we mentioned up top, subscribers to Sling Orange + Blue get access to all the regular channels that Sling has to offer. Since Sling Orange + Blue is essentially two packages, you can watch them on up to four devices at once.
There are benefits to each package, depending on where your interests are focused. Sling Orange has ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN 3 as part of your subscription. Sling Blue, on the other hand, offers more entertainment options with Bravo, Syfy, Tru TV, BET, and National Geographic joining the party. Which one you choose may depend entirely on how many people need access to the account. If you want the best of both worlds, go with Sling Orange + Blue. At just $25 per month for the first three months, then back to the standard $40 per month, it’s one of the best deals in all of streaming entertainment.
