sling tv guide

Hoping to get the most value for money after cutting the cord with your cable subscriber? Sling TV might be exactly fit your entertainment lifestyle.

This streaming service provider has the perks of traditional TV. Multiple plans and add-on channels, modern features such as Cloud DVR, video on demand and live broadcasts from top-rated networks like Disney, ESPN, etc. are available. All this at an unimaginably low monthly price!

Introducing Sling TV

Sling TV is one of the top streaming TV providers of all time. It is similar to Netflix but the shows are available to watch as they broadcast. It’s a monthly subscription service however, it’s also very similar to cable because of its channel packages.

But one quality that makes it better than cable is the price. No need to rent a cable box either. Enjoy streaming the channels you love at a fixed monthly bill. Plus, you are free to revoke the subscription anytime without getting penalized.

Sling TV Packages

Sling TV offers two basic TV plans. The first one is Sling Orange which costs $30 per month with 30 channels including Disney and ESPN. The second one is Sling Blue priced at $40 per month offering 40 channels including local channels and NBC.

Should you prefer a huge channel lineup, you can also combine Orange and Blue at the price of $45 per month.

Sling has several extra packages to make streaming TV even more exciting. This also includes popular premium channels we all love.

The channels in Orange and Blue plans largely overlap but a few key differences differentiate one from the other. Let’s dig into the details of these three plans.

1: Sling Orange

The Orange plan gives you access to 30 channels. Some channels overlap between Orange and Blue whereas some are not a part of Blue. Orange is a single stream service. Only one device can stream at a time.

It’s ideal for households sharing a single login to stream TV together. When other services such as Hulu TV have raised their monthly prices, Sling Orange is an affordable option for many households.

The channel lineup reveals what you’d get at $30 per month:

Orange Channel Lineup
A&E Comedy Central HGTV
ACC Network Extra Disney Channel History Channel
AMC EPIX IFC
AXS TV ESPN Lifetime
BBC America ESPN2 Local Now
Bloomberg TV ESPN3 TBS
Travel Channel Flama TNT
Cartoon Network / Adult Swim Food Network Tribeca Shortlist
Cheddar Freeform Viceland
CNN Newsy Fuse


Sling Blue

Sling Blue brings 15 additional channels as compared to Orange. You may not get Disney channel and ESPN but it’s a compromise anyone would be willing to make then they are getting 45 channels, right? Blue carries a good mix of kids, lifestyle, reality TV, news and sports channels. It’s the best option for families.  Plus, up to 3 people can stream at the same time.

Check out the channel lineup of the Blue plan:

Sling Orange + Blue

Combing the two together, the Sling Orange + Blue package offers 53 channels. The unique channels from Orange and Blue are combined at the cost of $45 per month. Three users can stream at the same time.

However, as per network agreements, some channels support a single stream only. For instance, channels unique to Orange can be streamed on one device at a time only.

Sling TV Add-Ons

To make sure former cable TV customers don’t miss shows they used to enjoy on AT&T TV or other providers, Sling TV has plenty of add-on channel packages.

A La Carte TV is always entertaining. You get to personalize your channel lineup by adding a group of channels to the base package. But there is a catch. The base package determines which channels you are eligible for as add-ons.

Let’s say you are a sports fan and the Sling Orange plan doesn’t cover your favorite sports channel. With the sports add-on plan, all your streaming demands are covered. Most channels cost $5 a month but if it’s a premium channel or an international channel, the monthly price would slightly be higher.

Let’s explore the add-ons one by one:

Get Yourself DVR Too

The debate of getting DVR with your cable/streaming service is as real as the debate of OLED vs QLED TV. Sling gives its customers two options when it comes to DVR. First is the free cloud DVR. It comes with 10 hours of storage.

If you would like to record more shows to watch later, the second option offers up to 50 hours of storage. It costs an additional $5 per month.

Without a doubt, Sling TV is a fair deal for anyone who cannot afford cable. Its extensive channel lineup is an entertainment extravaganza for all.
