Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, and local channels.

To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options.

Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels.

Manchester United vs. Liverpool: What to watch for

Liverpool notched a 2-1 win over Leicester City in its last match, with James Milner converting a controversial penalty to keep the win streak going. Milner also assisted Sadio Mane on the opening goal, to get Liverpool to eight wins in eight matches. Coupled with City’s 2-0 loss to Wolves, Liverpool’s now jumped out to an eight-point lead in the Premier League race.

Manchester United, meanwhile, slid to 12th place after a 1-0 loss to a Newcastle side desperate to stay in the Premier League. The embattled United is now winless in its last three, with only nine points accumulated after the season’s first eight matches.

On paper, it looks like Liverpool will cruise; however, this is one of the most intense derbies in world football, regardless of where the teams stand. United would love to be the ones to disrupt Liverpool’s historic run, and the fans at Old Trafford will certainly be up for it.
