To cap off an already-historic week in politics, we’ve expanded the Sling Free experience with ABC News Live, to deliver the latest news from early voting states, Washington, D.C. and more as Election Day draws near.

All prospective, active and former Sling TV subscribers using a Roku, Amazon or Android streaming device or Chrome, Safari or Edge browsers will now gain free viewership to ABC News Live — no credit card or account needed. Current subscribers can enjoy coverage from ABC News Live on any Sling-supported device.

ABC News Live is a 24/7 streaming video news channel for breaking news and live events. Along with broadcasting the latest headlines, the channel also has original programming including the new primetime newscast featuring ABC News Correspondent Linsey Davis weeknights at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST.

There’s no better time to tune in on Sling Free than this Friday, February 7 beginning at 8 p.m. EST as the final few candidates take the Democratic debate stage just days ahead of the New Hampshire primary.

Get the Sling Free Experience:

  • Download the Sling TV app on a Roku, Amazon or Android device, or simply head to on Chrome, Safari or Edge browsers and follow the instructions on the welcome screen.
  • On the “My TV” screen in the Sling TV app, select ABC News Live in the “Free Live TV” ribbon or navigate to the ABC News Live channel in the guide.
  • Users can choose to upgrade to a monthly Sling TV subscription by clicking the banner at the top of their “My TV” screen or continue browsing and watching free content without an account.

Sling Free gives viewers the opportunity to preview more than 3,000 hours of premium content without a subscription, which is great for those new to Sling TV. Users are able to watch free TV episodes, purchase Pay-Per-View events or movies and subscribe to popular standalone channels such as NBA League Pass, Showtime, EPIX and STARZ.
