General Notes about Sling TV
Sling TV is an app-based TV service letting us stream live television and on-demand content over the internet. Two main services are offered, Orange and Blue. They vary in channel selections as well as how many devices that can be streamed on (one with Orange and three for Blue). Our Sling TV channel guide helps clarify the various channel lineups.
“Sling Orange vs Blue is a battle of the service’s two basic, cheaper plans and they are very similar with one big difference: the channel lineup.” — Henry T. Casey, Tom’s Guide, Sept. 2021
Sling Extras are add-on channel collections sorted by category (e.g., Sports Extra, Comedy Extra, News Extra). They can be added to either service. Premium channels can be added as well, either standalone (e.g., The Country Network, Stingray Karaoke, ScreamFlix) or as a series of channels (e.g. those in Showtime, Starz, ePiX).
Devices include Apple TV, iOS (Apple desktops), Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox, AirTV Player, Android tv, Windows (PC desktops), Samsung, TiVo and more. The complete list can be found here on the Sling website.
TV Station Breakdown
Although the Sling TV website says “32, 43 & 51 stations” (Orange, Blue, Orange and Blue, respectively), the actual count is higher (yay to bonus channels!). All channels are 720p resolution or better. Local news and sports channels (over-the-air) can be added but only with a separate purchase of an HD antenna.
Notable live channels include NBC and Fox as well as CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. Add some Cheddar News into the mix and it becomes a tasty nacho plate full of zest, elan and flavor [just checking you’re paying attention aha!].
Here’s the first thirty channels. Sure, you can copy-paste but might as well download our colourful SlingTV PDF channel guide. It’s smarter and prettier 😜. Just click “Add to cart” to start. No credit card info is required (sorry, long story). My favorites are noted. Please feel free to comment on yours in a desperately needed product review (click on the tab… please?!).

Notable Sports Channels in the Sling TV Basic Packages (Orange and Blue)
There is a schizoid split when it comes to sports channels for the two basic Sling TV packages. ESPN series (ESPN, ESPN2 & ESPN3) comes with Sling Orange, yet Fox Sports 1 and 2 as well as NFL Network fall under Sling Blue. To get around this purposely built conundrum, one is forced to get Orange + Blue or add Sports Extra.
Side Note: If you want to stream from more than one device, then you’re stuck paying for Sling Orange.
Notable TV Channels in the Sports Extra Package
Big sporting networks include Fox Sports 1 and 2, MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, NFL Redzone and NHL Network. Most are available only with Sling Blue or Sling Blue + Orange. However, ACC Network, ESPNews and SEC Network, come only with the Sling Orange package.
Sling Free gives us free access to thousands of on-demand shows and movies as well as some live channels. There is no fixed term, meaning, it’s not a trial period. No credit card or registration is required. In other words, it’s hassle free, but we have to deal with advertisements. Our Sling TV channel guide provides a listing of all Sling Free channels as well.
Sling Free can be accessed by going to watch.sling.com on a web browser (Chrome, Edge, or Safari only) or by downloading the Sling TV app to our streaming devices (such as Amazon Fire TV, Android, LG TV, Roku, Samsung TV, or Xbox).
