If you're on the fence about cutting the cord, a new offer from Sling TV should make your decision a little easier, because it takes care of one of the most common complaints. The streaming TV service is offering a deal where you can get an AirTV Player, a device that lets you watch locals channels over the air, Netflix, and Sling TV content all in the same interface) for just $50 when you sign on for three months of Sling TV. The AirTV player usually costs about $130, meaning there's a savings of about $80 to be had. Considering that Sling TV service starts at only $20 a month, it's like getting four free months of Sling just for purchasing the device. New subscribers to Sling have a few different options available. They can:
- Prepay for three months of Sling TV if your base service is $20 or over and get AirTV Player and AirTV Adapter for $50.
- Prepay for four months of Sling TV if your monthly payment is between $15-$20 and get AirTV Player and AirTV Adapter for $50.
- Prepay for six months of Sling TV if your monthly payment is under $15 and get AirTV Player and AirTV Adapter for $50.
Sling TV coupled with AirTV really is an exceptional way to dive into cord cutting. You won't miss out on anything from cable, and you'll pay a fraction of the price.
