How Much Content is Available On-Demand From Sling TV?

Sling TV claims that it has over 10,000 hours of on-demand content, and our own experience with the service backs this up.

Like most other internet TV services, it doesn’t own the content that is provided on-demand. Instead, the cable channels and networks each supply VOD content individually. This means that the available shows and programs that are offered by Sling TV change quite a bit, due to syndication rights and other factors.

To find on-demand content, all you have to do is open up the “Guide” then choose the channel you’re interested in watching. Then, you’ll be able to see all of the VOD content available for your selected channel and start watching right away.

What Kind of Content Can I Expect From the Sling TV On-Demand Library?

Sling TV has both movies and TV shows on-demand from major cable and broadcast networks like AMC, FX, FOX and more, and there is a fairly diverse selection of content.

AMC, for example, usually has the 3 most recently-broadcast episodes of top shows like The Walking Dead. USA has 6 full seasons of Chrisley Knows Best. On FX, you can watch movies like Bad Moms and Deadpool. SYFY has Avengers: Age of Ultron, and so on.

Overall, the selection of content is pretty good. You won’t really be able to watch full past seasons of your favorite shows, for the most part, but you’ll be able to catch up on recent episodes, and select shows do have a large selection of past episodes. You’ll definitely never have trouble finding something good to watch.

Does Sling TV On-Demand Content Have Commercials?

Yes. You can expect a few commercial breaks during each of the shows or movies you watch. However, these ads are usually only 30 seconds long, and fairly infrequent compared to watching live TV, so they do not interfere with the viewing experience in any major way.

What Apps Can I Use to Watch Sling TV On-Demand?

Any device that is supported by Sling TV also supports on-demand viewing. That means you can watch the Sling TV on-demand library on iOS and Android, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku and Chromecast, as well as Android TV, Roku TVs, some LG and Samsung smart TVs, the Xbox One console, and select Xfinity X1 devices.
