Everything You Need to Know About the New Sling TV

The new Sling TV is here. With consumers as our number one priority, we’ve completely redefined the industry again.

Starting today, returning Sling TV customers can enjoy more flexibility and control through the new Sling TV experience on Roku devices, which includes the ability to watch free, on-demand content, purchase à la carte channels, pay-per-view (PPV) events and movies without purchasing a Sling TV base subscription.

Watch Free TV Shows and Movies


Once you re-open the Sling TV app on your Roku device, you’ll see new ribbons on the “My TV” screen, highlighting more than 100 hours of popular TV shows and movies, including “Wrecked,” “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” “Good Behavior,” “Flip or Flop” and more. This content is available to you absolutely free, without restarting your subscription. Simply click and watch!

Buy Pay-per-view Events and Movies, À La Carte


In 2017, we became the only live streaming service to bring you UFC and boxing matches via pay-per-view, delivering more than 15 high-profile events. Now, we’re making it even easier for boxing and UFC fans to catch the big fight, without the need for a Sling TV subscription. Starting today, as a returning Sling TV customer, you can order PPV events as a one-time purchase, or combine your selected event with your monthly service.

Movie buffs can also purchase movies without a subscription, and you’ll have access to more than 5,000 titles so you can watch (or re-watch) your blockbusters from the comfort of your own couch.

Purchase À La Carte Channels


We’re breaking apart the bundle even more with the launch of à la carte channels in the new Sling experience. Now you can purchase select channels without purchasing a Sling TV base subscription and watch these channels through the Sling TV app. Channels available à la carte at launch include Showtime ($10 per month), CuriosityStream ($6 per month), Stingray Karaoke ($7 per month), Dove Channel ($5 per month), Outside TV Features ($5 per month), UP Faith & Family ($5 per month), Pantaya ($6 per month) and NBA League Pass ($28.99 per month). And stay tuned, we’re working to add additional à la carte channels to the new Sling experience!

Subscription Bundles
Still love your Sling Orange and Sling Blue? We’re making it easier than ever to jump back in to your subscription. If you are looking to restart your previous subscription, you can do so by selecting the banner at the top of the page that says, “Restart your subscription” and immediately start viewing the channels you’ve been missing.

We will begin rolling out this new experience to select former customers today. If you don’t own a Roku, don’t worry – we plan to expand the new Sling experience to additional devices in the near future. We look forward to bringing you more great movies, live events, sports and TV shows, and the new Sling TV experience is another example of how we are striving to provide you with the best possible experience for live and on-demand entertainment at home and on-the-go.
