You have a lot of options.

How much is Sling TV? That depends entirely on how much you customize your subscription. There are three base channel packages, which range from $25 to $40 per month, and you could easily be satisfied with what’s available in those. But chances are that you’ll want to add some premium channels or cloud DVR, which would obviously affect the price you’d be paying for Sling TV. The options are, if not limitless, certainly plentiful. Here is the complete list of options, with further detail about each Sling TV package and add-on available below.

Sling TV packages

Sling TV comes in three different color-coded flavors.

Sling Orange costs $25 per month and allows you to stream on one device at a time. It offers more than 25 channels, including a block of ESPN programming and the Disney Channel, but most of its offerings can also be found in Sling Blue. You can find the full list of Sling Orange channels here.

Sling TV DVR

how much is sling tv dvr Sling TV

While most live TV streaming services offer some form of cloud DVR for free, it’s an upsell for Sling TV, but that’s one of the ways the service says it keeps the cost down on its basic packages. Unless you don’t mind being glued in front of your screen, you’ll want to add cloud DVR so that you can record your favorite shows and sports to watch at your convenience. There are some limitations, so you should check out our guide to Sling TV DVR.

Sling TV pricing breakdown: Add-on packages

Here’s where the price of Sling TV can vary wildly. Depending on your interests and what channels you simply have to have, the cost of Sling TV can quickly balloon with these add-on packages, which are grouped into categories like Sports and News. You’ll see that there are two different versions of most of the packages. That’s because they offer slightly different channels based on your basic package. If you start with Sling Orange + Blue, you can add either version of the add-on package.

Note: You can subscribe to four Extra packages (Kids Extra, Lifestyle Extra, Comedy Extra, and News Extra) for a total of $10 per month. Otherwise, they’re $5 each per month.
