Thinking about joining Sling TV but are on the fence? Well, you can have two weeks to figure it out. The streaming service has announced that they are going to extend their free trial from one week to two. Here is why this might be the right choice for you.
Why Sling TV for Streaming?
What’s great about Sling TV is there are no contracts. Cancellation is pretty simple and they don’t have any hidden fees. You get live TV to almost any streaming device, including:
- Apple TV
- X Box One
As Sling TV subscriber, you will receive access to over 50 channels. This includes the ever-elusive, ESPN. That’s right, the ESPN that is known to jack up your cable prices is actually apart of an affordable package through Sling TV.
How Does Sling TV Work?
When you sign up for Sling TV, you can opt for one of the three packages that will serve as the foundation for your programming plan.
Sling TV Options include:
- Sling Blue – $15
- Sling Orange – $15
- Sling Blue & Orange – $15
Sling Blue has tons of options for content including CNN, USA, FX, Nick, Jr., and TBS. However, it’s lacking in the sports department. Sure, there’s the NFL Network and FS1, but ESPN is glaringly missing.
Sling Orange doesn’t have as many options as Sling Blue. It has many of the essentials such as CNN, Comedy Central, and AMC. However, what makes Sling Orange an attractive package to many is its high level of sports.
There is no denying that sports is the number one reason people are hesitant to cut the cord. Seeing as Sling Orange has ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, TNT, and Stadium, and more, this is a very attractive, albeit slim package for sports nuts.
For just ten more dollars, you can get both packages. That means sports nuts can get the NFL Network and ESPN.
How to Get Sling TV for Two Weeks Free on Living Social?
Right now, Sling TV is offering what they’re promoting as a “limited time” two week trial of Sling TV. While you technically don’t have to buy anything, you will have to enter your credit card number. That way they can roll you into a subscription.
However, there are no contracts. Therefore, if you cancel on the last day of your two-week trial, you are under no obligation. You legit got two weeks free of Sling TV.
Here is the fine print as posted in their Living Social Ad:
“Promotional value expires Jun 6, 2019. Amount paid never expires. There is no amount paid associated with this voucher, only a promotional value. Limit 1 per voucher brand account and Sling account. For new customers only, get 14-day free trial when you use promo code at checkout on Sling.com/promo. Must provide valid email address and credit card. After 14 days, your credit card will be charged monthly for applicable subscription unless you cancel your service. Offer subject to change. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services. Offer is not eligible for our promo codes or other discounts.”– Sling TV
While this is a great, it does cancel out the other excellent deal that Sling TV also offers new subscribers. The first three months are just $25 if you pay upfront. Therefore, if you’re looking for a better bang for your buck, get Sling TV for three months over the two-week trial, and cancel when the three months is over.
