We may be living in the era of streaming and on-demand video, but that doesn’t mean that cable TV doesn’t have its perks. Live TV is still the best way to tune into breaking news, the most exciting sporting events and new episodes of your favorite TV shows.
But that doesn’t mean you have to pick between streaming and live TV. Whether you’re looking to cut the cord and enjoy the freedom of watching live TV on a wide range of devices, or you’re a seasoned cord-cutter in search of more live content, there’s a solution that delivers the best of both worlds: Sling TV.
With dozens of live TV channels to choose from, and more than 80,000 TV shows and movies available on demand, you will not be lacking for things to watch. And to help you get a taste of what you’ve been missing out on, Sling has a special deal for new subscribers: You can get your first month of Sling TV service for just $10.
You’ll also get a free month of Sling’s DVR Plus feature, which lets you record up to 200 hours of your favorite shows and movies for later viewing.
This bundle would cost $40 under normal circumstances, which means that you will save $30 on your first month of service.
We think this deal is pretty incredible on its own, and a great way to decide if an app-based TV service is right for you. But if you still need convincing, we have four more reasons why now is the perfect time to ditch cable once and for all.
Sling TV Has All Your Favorite Networks
When you sign up for Sling TV, you have your choice of Sling Blue or Sling Orange. Regardless of which you sign up for, you get access to more than 30 channels, including CNN, HGTV, Comedy Central, AMC and Cartoon Network. But each package also has its own unique offerings:
Sling Blue offers the NFL Network, along with a handful of Fox and NBC networks. This includes FX, MSNBC, TLC, E!, USA and SYFY.
Sling Orange, meanwhile, includes ESPN, ESPN 2, and ESPN 3 along with family-friendly networks such as the Disney Channel, Nick Jr. and FreeForm.
The nice thing is that you have the freedom to choose between Sling Blue and Sling Orange whenever you want, but if you want it all, you can also opt for Sling Blue + Sling Orange, which gives you access to all the channels in both packages. And while it normally costs $50 a month, you can get your first month for $25 with Sling’s introductory offer.
Watch What You Want, When You Want … On Any Device You Want
Want to watch your favorite shows on your TV? Laptop? Phone? Now you can, thanks to Sling TV.
You have an incredible amount of flexibility in how you watch your favorite TV shows and movies. Whether you want to watch the NBA Playoffs on your phone while you’re in a cab, or you want to catch up on your DVR’d shows on your TV, it’s completely up to you.
And if you have more than one TV watcher in your household, you can have up to three devices streaming at the same time when you pick the Sling Blue plan. This means everyone can spend less time trying to agree on what everyone wants to watch.
Local Broadcast Networks Are Included With Locast
But it doesn’t end there. If you’re worried about losing out on your local news, or want to go back to it without having to install an antenna, Sling TV has you covered with Locast.
Locast takes over-the-air broadcast networks from 29 different metropolitan markets and makes them available to stream. This includes ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX affiliates across the country.
If you use Sling’s AirTV Mini streaming device or load up Sling TV on any Android-based device, Locast is integrated into the Sling TV interface. If you don’t have one of the devices mentioned above, you can still use the standalone Locast app, which is available on most major software platforms.
No Hidden Charges
With Sling TV, you won’t get stuck with secret fees for equipment or random price hikes after the first year of service. After the first month, you will pay $35 a month for the base service and can cancel your service whenever you want without getting hit with an early termination fee.
And if you want even more of what Sling has to offer, you can easily add or subtract additional channel bundles from your package whenever you want. This includes specialized bundles that offer sports, news, comedy and more.
With all that Sling has to offer, and the convenience that it provides, we think this is a pretty great way to give it a try. But this offer isn’t going to be around forever. So if you want to take advantage of this $10 introductory offer, you should hop on this deal as soon as possible by heading over to Sling.com.
