Sling TV is offering a new way to spend your nights at home and you won't have to pay a cent for it. The all-new 'Happy Hour Across America' promotion unlocks access to Sling's live TV streaming service for free (opens in new tab) between the hours of 5 p.m. EST and midnight, letting you watch over 50 live channels as well as all the on-demand content you want; it even includes free cloud DVR service, and the best part is that no credit card or billing information is needed to start watching.
To start streaming during Sling TV's Happy Hour, you'll just need to create an account at Sling (opens in new tab) which only takes a minute or two to accomplish. Once you have an account, you'll be able to log into Sling on any device that supports the Sling TV app, such as streaming media players, smartphones, tablets, or your smart TV. Your account allows for streaming on up to three devices all at once, so your kids can watch on their phone or tablet as well.
The Happy Hour promotion gives you free access to the Sling Blue plan between 5 p.m. EST and midnight. This plan features some of the most popular news and entertainment channels, including A&E, AMC, Bravo, E!, FX, HGTV, Nick Jr., TLC and more. Unfortunately, you won't have access to channels from the Sling Orange package, though there is a discount on that plan currently available if you try out Sling and decide you like it enough to subscribe for more channels.
Sling TV will even be airing The Last Dance: Michael Jordan Documentary when it premieres on Sunday night, April 19 at 9PM EST on ESPN, though this channel is only available with either the Sling Orange or Sling Orange+Blue plans. Luckily, you can sign up today and save $10 on your first month (opens in new tab), bringing the Sling Orange plan down to just $20 while Sling Orange+Blue drops to $35 for the month. Be sure to click 'Change Subscription' before checking out to ensure you've selected the correct plan. Sling Blue is also eligible for this offer.
I can't find any information on how long this promotion lasts. Is it a 14 day, 30 day, or what?
It continues until whenever Sling decides to end it. Seriously. PROBABLY when the severity of the pandemic begins to subside.
FYI no problem watching happy hour on my tablet but I could not log in for happy hour on my fire TV cube :-( really a shame because I love the integration of the free channels on sling TV with the fire TV grid guide. Lucky I can cast from the tablet to the tv but it would of been sweet if the tv app worked.
