How does Sling TV work


You’re here, reading this article for one of two reasons. First, you’re a cord cutter and you want to find out about the Sling TV free trial because you’re considering Sling TV. Second, you’re here because you still have cable, and you want to see if there is a better way to save money, but still enjoy the shows you love to watch. In either case, you’ve come to the right place.

If you’ve been wanting to try Sling TV free, we can tell you more about the free trial for Sling TV including how long it lasts, how to sign up, and even what happens if you cancel before (or after) it ends. First let’s look at what you receive in your Sling TV free trial.


Sling TV Free Trial – Channel Options

Your free trial for Sling TV will include 30+ channels including AMC, A&E, Lifetime, TNT, ESPN, TBS, ESPN, CNN, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, Disney, and several other channels. You can add several other channels from bundles to premium options like HBO and Starz, though these channels will cost a small fee since they are not part of your Sling TV free trial. You’ll have access to an on-demand library, too. In short, anything that comes with your base package works when you try Sling TV free. You can learn more about the Sling TV offerings in our Sling TV review.


Sling TV Free Trial – How Long is the Trial?

The Sling TV free trial lasts for a full week. This gives you seven days to try out all that Sling TV has to offer. Everything that you get in your Sling TV package you’ll get to test out and enjoy. This means you can take the time to figure out how things work and figure out if you want to keep your membership.


Sling TV Free Trial – How to Sign Up?

It’s absolutely simple to sign up for the Sling TV free trial. All you need to do is follow these steps.

  1. Visit on your computer
  2. Click to Start your 7-Day Trial
  3. Fill out the basic information including email and password
  4. Start Sling TV on the device of your choice (Roku, mobile devices, Chromecast, Apple TV, etc)
  5. Enjoy your favorite shows!


Sling TV Free Trial – What’s the Deal with Canceling?

When you pay for Sling TV, you pay in advance for the month. So, if you pay on the 1st and cancel on the 15th your membership will stay active until the end of the month. When it comes to the Sling TV free trial if you cancel during the trial period your membership ends immediately and you won’t have a second chance at another free trial. If you’re intending to cancel but do not cancel in that first week you will be charged the $20 monthly fee, and your membership will turn off at the end of the month.
