This year’s top Sling TV holiday season promotion is a special deal on the Amazon Fire TV Stick. In exchange for passing on the seven-day free trial and making an up-front, non-refundable payment of your subscription’s first two months, Sling TV will give you a free Fire TV Stick.
What is the Fire TV Stick?
Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is the size of a large thumb drive with an HDMI connector in the place of a USB connector. You plug it directly into your television to stream more than 500,000 movies and TV episodes. You can get those videos from Amazon Prime Video (of course) as well as through apps from Sling TV, Netflix and more.
Is it a Good Deal?
If you already plan to subscribe to Sling TV, or if you’re on the fence between Sling TV and another service, then the offer is a nice deal-sweetener. You’ll be getting the service anyway so why not take the free offer?
Forget about cancelling early to get a quick deal. The lowest non-refundable price you can pay is $40. Amazon sells the Fire TV Stick for $39.99 everyday. Black Friday it will be $25.
Other Sling TV deals
You have two options if you prefer the Roku platform over Amazon’s. The $30 Roku Express streaming stick is free for the same two-month commitment. Or you can get a $50 discount on the $100 Roku Ultra with a three-month commitment.
The final promotion is a $50 discount on the $130 AirTV Player with a three-month pre-purchase. The AirTV Player has a built-in TV tuner to bring in the local TV channels that Sling TV can’t provide.
