It isn't always easy to decide if a streaming service is right for you. That's why some offer free trials. But what about Sling TV, the original live TV streaming “skinny bundle”? Does this service have a free trial?

Does Sling TV have a free trial?

Sling TV is a popular service that has a lot going for it. Unfortunately, a free trial program is not one of those things. As of this writing, Sling TV has phased out its free trial program. Happily, the service has replaced it with a new discount deal that reduces the price of your first month of service

How long is the Sling TV free trial? Does the Sling TV free trial automatically renew?

While Sling TV has offered a three-day and even a weeklong trial in the past, there are no such offers available as of this writing. For the time being, that means no free trial of any length.

Back when such a free trial existed, it did automatically renew.

What does Sling TV cost?

Customers can get a discount on their first month of Sling TV. If you get either Sling Blue or Sling Orange on this discount deal, then you’ll pay only $10. If you get both Sling Blue and Sling Orange, then you’ll pay $20. But how much will Sling TV cost after this one-month introductory deal?

That all depends on which bundle you pick. Sling TV offers two base bundles — Sling Orange and Sling Blue — at $35 per month each. Get both and you'll get a discounted rate of $50 per month. From there, you can add on all sorts of extra goodies in the form of add-on bundles called (appropriately enough) Extras. Those can be as cheap as $5 per month.

Do I have to sign a contract with Sling TV?

Sling TV states they don't have any contract requirements or hidden fees.

In essence, this means that you're paying on a month-to-month basis. If you want to cancel, you can do so at any time. Sling TV isn't going to refund any payments, but you'll never be locked into making any future payments, and your cancellation will be effective at the end of the current billing period (meaning that, while you won't get any refunds, you'll at least get to watch Sling TV for the rest of the current month).

Still want to know more about Sling TV before you provide your credit card info? We get it. Our Sling TV review has more details about what to expect with this live TV streaming service. Spoiler alert: We’re fans.

How do I cancel a Sling TV subscription?

Sling TV subscriptions are paid on a month-to-month basis, so you can cancel at any time. If you want to cancel your Sling TV subscription, go to www.sling.com/account. Alternatively, you can call their customer service department at 1-888-309-0838. Sling TV does not accept email cancellation requests. Once you cancel, your subscription services will continue through the end of your current billing period.

Where can I get a Sling TV free trial?

Alas, as you've probably deduced by now, there is no Sling TV free trial — not right now, anyway — and (as of this writing) we haven't heard anything about one coming back. There is, however, a sweet Sling TV discount deal on the first month of service for new customers. If you want to get your first month of Sling TV for as low as $10, you can do that, but we know it’s not the same as a free trial.

And if the Sling TV free trial does return, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear about it.

    Yes there is a free trial offer. Hit the link, go to the bottom of the page and open your eyes to the small text “See our free trial offer”.

    clicked the link registered. states ‘today’s fee $______’ doesn’t seem free to me.

  8. Linda Cohen says:

    Very deceiving. You think when you sign up that you will be allowed 7 day free trial automatically. Not the case. I signed up, could not get audio, cancelled within the 7 days, and they will not refund the $21.50 they charged to my credit card.

      Good to know!

    “The easiest way to get to the Sling TV free trial offer is right here on our website. Just click on the link below and it will take you to the Sling TV free trial offer option.”

    There is no link below !

    Clickbait !

    I thought I was getting a free trial for the super bowl. Subscribed Sunday morning and cancelled Monday or Tuesday, but can’t get the $35 refunded. Total ripoff.

  11. Empire falls says:

    I tried a Sling TV trial about 4 years ago,Cancelled before the end
    I tried a Sling TV trial again about 2-3 years ago. Continued with Sling for 11 months,then canceled.”

    Last year i bought a Roku with a “FREE MONTH” Sling TV trial promo code. 8 days into the “free month”, i got charged a full month—-i did not notice for about a week i got charged.
    I contacted SLing TV, after going thu a telephone voice circus of press,press,press, and then 3 people, i finally got a person who spoke poor English, i would not be getting a refund because i had a trial before.
