Sling Demo: Watch live TV, ESPN, soccer, AMC and more


Cord cutters and sports fans can now finally get ESPN without needing a cable or satellite TV subscription. With the launch of Sling TV, residents in the US can sign up for a package at $20/month, which delivers ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, CNN, TBS, Disney Channel and a lot more to your computer, smart phone, tablet and set top box devices.

For sports fans, it’s an opportunity to cut the cord with your cable or satellite TV subscription and only watch the channels you’re interested in.

We decided to take a look at Sling TV and to provide you with a video demo of how Sling works, and to show you the quality of the streams.

Before we do, it’s important to note that Sling is completely legal. With pirated streams, you get malware, pop-up ads and poor quality. With Sling, you get HD streams. And they’re now offering a free 7-day trial.

Sign up for the Sling 7-day trial and see for yourself how good the service is.

For soccer fans, Sling also offers beIN SPORTS and Univision Deportes Network. See our Sling FAQ for more info, and be sure to watch the video below. Also, we have a side-by-side comparison chart, that offers more details.

    Does anyone know if this only works for live events? I have to travel on Sunday and will be on a plane during El Classico but would love to watch the match later that evening at the hotel I’m staying at.

    Does the service offer a playback option?

      The video demo shows the playback option in more detail. But the answer to your question is that, yes, beIN SPORTS provides playback via the Sling TV app (and other apps).

      Unfortunately not at this time. The only way to get NBC Sports Live Extra is via a TV subscription. With NBC being owned by Comcast, I don’t see that changing anytime soon.

        Via Roku….download Channel Pear and then search media database. NBC sports is there. Add it to your library, it is in wonderful HD. There are also two ESPN HD feeds that carry mostly soccer matches, although they are is Spanish including Champions League matches, Not perfect, can be glitchy, but it is better than a $100 cable bill.
