With Sling TV adding NBCSN to its new Sling Blue streaming service, you can watch Premier League games televised on NBCSN and NBC without needing a cable or TV subscription. In addition to NBC and NBCSN’s availability on Sling TV, soccer fans can also get ESPN, ESPN2, FOX, FS1, FS2, beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Español, Univision, UniMas and Univision Deportes, in addition to several other soccer-related channels.
That means you can watch a ton of games from the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, Liga MX, World Cup 2018/2022/2026, Euro 2016/2020, La Liga, MLS, Europa League, World Cup qualifiers, Serie A, Championship, Capital One Cup, FA Cup, Bundesliga, Ligue Un and many more leagues and competitions.
We’ve included a step-by-step guide below to help you through the Sling TV 7-day free trial.
For the free trial, you can try as many of the channels as you like. But after the trial ends, you have a choice between:
Sling Blue — NBCSN, FS1, FS2, FOX, NBC, Univision, UniMas, FOX Sports regional channels and 25+ entertainment and news channels ($25/month)
Sling Orange — ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, CNN, Disney Channel and 20+ news and entertainment channels ($20/month), or
Sling Orange and Sling Blue combined — $40/month.
You can also get beIN SPORTS and Univision Deportes for $5/month extra with the ‘Sports Extra’ package or ‘Best of Spanish TV’ package. The choices are almost endless.
Here’s the step-by-step guide of how to sign up for Sling TV. Sign-up just takes a few minutes.
Step 1: Visit the Sling TV page via this link.
Visit the Sling TV page via this link. Then click on the blue “Watch now 7-days free” button (see screenshot below).
Note: If you live outside the United States, you’ll need to sign up for a free trial with a VPN service in order to log in as a USA user. Once you’ve signed up for a VPN free trial, return to step 1 here.
Step 2: Enter your e-mail address and a password to create a Sling TV account.
After entering your e-mail address and password, click on the blue “Next” button (see screenshot).
Step 3: Choose between the Sling Orange, Sling Blue or combined packages
With Sling TV, you have a choice between the Sling Orange package (pictured below on the left), the Sling Blue package (pictured in the middle) or the combined Sling Orange and Sling Blue option (pictured below right).
For the complete list of channels available, there’ll be a “See more” link underneath the TV station logos.
Step 4: Select add-on packages, if you want
Sling TV offers a variety of add-on packages that you can include such as ‘Sports Extra’ that includes beIN SPORTS, while “Best of Spanish TV” includes Univision and UniMas. There are other add-ons too including HBO and other entertainment/news programming.
Step 5: Enter your billing information
With the free 7-day trial to Sling TV, your credit card won’t be charged. But you still need to enter your name and payment details in case you decide to continue the Sling TV service past the 7-day free trial (canceling your free trial is easy and can be done online).
Step 6: Don’t forget the age verification check-box
If you’re over 18 years old, click on the black check-box to the right of the blue-button. And then click on the ‘Finish and Submit’ blue button.
Step 7: Download the Sling TV app for your device
If you’ve made it to this step, congratulations. You’re now in the Sling TV free trial. To get the most out of your free trial, download the Sling TV app for your favorite device from sling.com/devices. The Sling TV app is available for Mac, Windows, smartphones, tablets, Amazon Fire, Xbox One and several other devices.
After selecting the app, go ahead and follow the installation instructions.
Step 8: Load your Sling TV app
After downloading the Sling TV app, go ahead and load it and you’ll then see a login screen similar to the one shown below. Click on the “Sign-in” button
Step 9: Watch your favorite programming
You’re in! Browse through your favorite channels on Sling TV and enjoy your soccer.
Bonus: Watch streams via WatchESPN
With your free trial to Sling Orange (or the combined Sling Orange and Sling Blue), you also can access all of the additional ESPN programming on WatchESPN that aren’t already available on Sling TV.
First, visit WatchESPN.com and you’ll see the drop-down menu. Select “Sling TV” from the list and then click the red “Continue” button.
Unfortunately, as of press time, Sling Blue does not offer access to NBC Sports Live Extra (recently renamed as NBC Sports App).
Next, enter your e-mail address and password you used to sign up for the free trial to Sling TV and click on the blue “Sign-in” button.
Once you’ve logged in to WatchESPN with your Sling TV credentials, you can then select from a range of programming including the different types of tactical cams that are available (see screenshot below for examples).
