Spike TV has had a wild history as far as being a network is concerned. At one point the network was all about country music. After a few rebrandings, it became Spike TV in 2006. Today, they rebranded once more to become Spike (no TV), but fans of this adventurous network tend to still call it Spike TV. These days Spike caters to a more male audience. They have a host of syndicated TV and original programming that consists of mainly reality TV. If you like shows like Ink Masters or Bar Rescue, Sling TV is the network for you!
Sling TV is available through most cable networks, but what happens if you don’t have cable? At one point that would mean you wouldn’t be able to watch Spike.
