What are the Sling TV packages?
Sling TV's three main subscription packages offer different combinations of unique and shared channels.
Unfortunately, Sling TV’s features also vary depending on which subscription plan you get. Sling TV Orange only supports single-device streaming, while Sling TV Blue supports three-device streaming. Even if you get the combined subscription, any channels that are unique to Sling TV Orange are subject to the single-device limit.
Sling TV requires a separate subscription to its cloud DVR and prevents you from recording programs on ESPN and other channels.
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of what channels you’ll get with Sling TV’s various subscription plans. One thing to note: Sling TV does not stream ABC or CBS. If those stations are important, you may want a different service.
Is Sling TV worth it?
Between all the channels available throughout Sling TV, you can tailor the streaming service to perfectly fit your needs.
From sports to entertainment, Sling TV has got you covered! Thanks to Sling TV, you'll never need to look back at a cable subscription.
