Leading the charge in offering the ability to stream live TV channels through any device - including your TV - and slashing the cost of a traditional cable package, Sling TV is one of the most popular OTT streaming platforms for US audiences. Offering flexibility with the option to cancel anytime, a Sling TV price and plan is your to customize as you wish with plenty of add-ons and premium packages to consider on top of its default line-up of channels.

But before you tell cable to sling its hook once and for all, we explain below the various Sling TV price points available to subscribe to. You can also find out what channels it has lined up in its roster (including AMC, ESPN, and E!), ways you can customize your package to tune into exactly what you want to watch, and, of course, how to sign up.

What Sling TV price and plans are available?

The price of Sling TV starts from $40 a month, but it really depends on what you want from the cable alternative. You can build your plan out to feature all the channels you want to tune into, with a roster of more than 40 channels, as well as add-ons and premium packages to boot.

Sling TV's baseline package gives you the option of its Sling Blue or Sling Orange plan, both costing from $40 a month, or combine both for $55 a month. In some markets where the likes of ABC, Fox, and NBC can be reached, Sling OTA packages cost from $45 to encompass the extra channels included.

Broken down, they look something like this:

There are some crossovers in plans where you'll get both channels, however Blue caters more for entertainment and news, while the Orange plan has more sports and channels for all the family. They also differ in terms of how many simultaneous streams you can have at one time (Blue - 3 streams, Orange - 1 stream), but whichever plan you opt for, you'll get 50 hours of DVR storage thrown in for free.

Are there any Sling TV deals available right now?

Sling TV nearly always has some kind of introductory deal available for those looking to sign up to either of its plans. Currently the best Sling TV price is saving 50% off your first month, with the last Sling TV free trial of any kind last seen in March 2022.
