Sling TV Partners with Blockbuster for Flashback Friday – Get Ready for Free Movie Night

Remember those days when a Friday night trip with mom or dad to Blockbuster was the highlight of the week? Well now, you can relive some of those glory days as Sling TV and Blockbuster present Flashback Friday!

Starting Friday, Jan. 31, Sling TV will air a different movie every Friday to Make It A Blockbuster Night®, no charge or credit card needed. All you need to do is have your popcorn ready!

To kick off this throwback movie series, The Illusionist, the 2006 film with Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel about a Viennese magician around the turn of the 20th century, will be the first film.

February’s movies will keep viewers entertained as they wind down from the workweek:

  • Feb. 7: The Maiden Heist (2009), a comedy with Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken and William H. Macy.
  • Feb. 14: Stuck in Love (2012), a romantic comedy starring Jennifer Connelly, Greg Kinnear and Lily Collins
  • Feb. 21: The Proposition (2005), a drama with 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, starring Guy Pierce and Ray Winstone
  • Feb. 28: Bernie (2011), a comedy starring Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey and Shirley MacLaine

To take part in Flashback Friday, download the Sling TV app on a Roku, Amazon, Android devices, and Android mobile or on your desktop via the Sling website, www.sling.com/Blockbuster.
