How do I find out what channels the different channels are on?
The beauty of Sling TV is that there are no channel numbers. You navigate through the channel names and then pick the ones you want to watch.
Unlike cable or satellite, you don’t need to memorize the channel numbers for ESPN, beIN SPORTS, etc.
Is it available worldwide?
No. Sling TV is only available to residents in the United States of America. But if you live outside the USA, you can get Sling TV. First, sign up for a free trial to Unblockus, a smart DNS service that allows you to change your IP address to the US. Then sign up for the free Sling TV trial.
How much does it cost?
The basic package, ‘Sling Orange,’ is $20/month (no contract required). It’s month to month, and you can cancel online at any time. The ‘Sling Orange’ package includes ESPN. If you want to add beIN SPORTS (for La Liga, Serie A, etc) and Univision Deportes (for Liga MX, etc), it’s $5 extra for a total of $25/month. Other packages are available too for kids and news programming, etc.
Sling Blue is $25/month and includes NBCSN, NBC, FOX, FS1, FS2 and many other channels.
You can get Sling Orange and Sling Blue together for $40/month.
A free 7-day trial of Sling is available for a limited time.
Who is Sling TV best suited for?
If you’re the type of person who leads a busy life and you want the flexibility to watch the best sports programming on your computer, smartphone, tablet or set top box, Sling TV is a perfect fit.
Also, Sling TV is perfect for cord cutters who no longer want to subscribe to a TV subscription for channels you don’t watch.

Both services (Sling TV and Sling International) require separate subscriptions. Depending on what programming you want, Sling TV or Sling International may be a better fit for you. Read our product review to learn more about that product.
