Sling TV Channel List

Sling TV Channel List

We recommend: Try Sling TV’s free trial.

Sling TV is based on a simple idea that cord cutters and disgruntled cable subscribers have been advocating for a really long time: à la carte channel subscriptions. It’s a simple concept: many of us don’t use all of the 200 or more channels that cable companies insist on bundling together. And since we only want a few of them, why should we pay for all of them? We should be allowed to pick and choose the channels we want, and pay only for what we’re actually using. That’s why we created this Sling TV channel list – to help you pick out your ideal channels, and scrap the others!

Sling TV isn’t perfect (check out our review of Sling TV to see why), but it’s a great step towards the ideal of complete à la carte channel subscriptions. Sling TV offers a range of base packages and add-on packages to help you replace cable on a budget. The only trick is choosing the right packages – and we’re here to help you do that. This is our Sling TV channel list, complete with descriptions of the channels and a comparison of what’s available with each of Sling TV’s three base packages.

    It’s nice to have an array of channels but you don’t have African American networks like TV ONE, OWN, & BET. African Americans watch television too!

  2. Bring back H2… and get rid of Vice… I prepaid for 3 months and if H2 isn’t back I’m not either…

  3. I wish we could get TLC.

  4. How do we get 2 TVs on Sling in the same house?

  5. Yes for ASPiRE TV, Centric TV and especially TV One for the African American audience. I am not including BET (poor representation)!

  6. When you add MSNBC, let me know.

  7. Any chance you’ll add MSNBC, Bravo and the Golf Channel?

  8. Once African American channels are added I would highly consider purchasing. ASPiRE TV, Centric TV, TV One and BounceTV.

  9. What I want to know is how often the programming changes. For example on the History Channel it says there are 7 episodes of Pickers. Is that all you can get? Also a lot of the time there is paid programming on there.

  10. Angela Daniels | May 1, 2016 at 11:33 pm | Reply

    I would purchase if there was AT LEAST ONE channel that has African American Programming. I would even do the $5 extra if they put together a package like for Latin channels.

  11. Martin Gray | May 12, 2016 at 5:44 pm | Reply

    Has a lot of channels that I don’t watch but does not have the channels that I do watch.

  12. Corey Lewis | May 22, 2016 at 2:44 am | Reply

    My wife loves to watch BET (Bobby Jones) on Sunday mornings if we can’t make church, but there isn’t BET in any of the packages or add ons. I had to cancel and get another subscription that offered BET. Have to accommodate my wife in this cutting the cord movement also. If Sling ever decides add BET, and some other diverse channels, we’ll be back.

  13. The good thing is that pricing should remain locked, because nothing about the service should cause it to change in the future. I am highly disappointed that they’re not offering TV One, Bet, etc… Those should have been offered from the beginning, and I hope they don’t add them later with inflated prices.

  14. I’m sort of bewildered that theres not one black TV network. Hopefully you’ll have the black network programming up shortly. We are mainstream, I’m really not looking at this in a good light.

  15. Untrue – you have BET on the beta Multi Stream. It would be nice to have these in alpha order to make finding a specific network lots easier.

  16. Antonio Calvo | July 1, 2016 at 7:25 pm | Reply

    Too bad you don’t offer MSNBC or other news channels.

  17. John DePasquale | July 5, 2016 at 12:58 am | Reply

    No Fox Business Channel or CNBC Market Watch. I need the business channels to keep up to date with the financial markets on a daily basis. Guess I’ll have to stay with crappy Dish.

  18. Todd Ingerson | July 11, 2016 at 1:37 am | Reply

    Would love to see Fox News added. Otherwise not bad. Been with Sling for about five months now.

  19. Tim McCulloch | July 21, 2016 at 1:33 am | Reply

    If you don’t mind spending just a little more, try SFN TV Now by Southern Fibernet…

    They have a 70 channel package for $36…

    At least check them out…

  20. John Winowich | July 28, 2016 at 1:00 am | Reply

    What about the Big Ten Network. Would be interested if that were added.

  21. Is this really better and cheaper than the cable company and other options? The free stuff is c***. After you buy, install and waste time figuring out Roku then to get what you really want, more money. I hope so in the long run.

  22. What channels does the free trial include, Blue + Orange?

  23. Sling and other similar services look no different than standard cable services and cost about the same. Not a solution for me and won’t be until I can pick the channels I am interested in and only those channels.

  24. Russell Leslie | August 18, 2016 at 2:07 am | Reply

    You should start an all-black network based on Muslim beliefs so that all the blacks that want their special TV can have it and the whites won’t have to pay for any of those channels. Will the black people of this country quit bitching about every damn thing. Life just ain’t fair for no body. You don’t see the whites or Jews or Vietnamese who totally got screwed by this government, run out and burn down their own neighborhood when a man of their race runs from police with a gun then gets shot.

    • Your last comment has absolutely nothing to do with Sling TV but I’ll bite. If it started happening to an unarmed person of YOUR race over and over maybe you would understand…

  25. Need TLC. Will pay xtra for it.

  26. Can Sling please include Hallmark Channel? It’s crucial they do.

  27. When are you going to get OWN NETWORK? Have Sling & very happy. When I saw Sling, I knew it was grace & mercy. Keep up the good BLESSING!!!!!!

  28. If you had OWN, then you would of had me sold.

  29. Can we get TLC and Pop?

  30. One of my favorite is Hallmark… Would even pay extra for it.

  31. David Zukauskas | September 22, 2016 at 1:41 pm | Reply

    Will Velocity TV and Discovery TV be available soon and can I get the network channels for an extra charge?

  32. When will you get Fox Business live???

  33. How can I speak with you or someone appropriate about the costs of the various extra add-ons?

  34. Great idea, but I’m an avid watcher of TLC. No TLC… no me. 😟

  35. I’d like to see you add all those FREE over the air channels, including local news.

  36. You can get the Hallmark channel called Feeln that has their movies for $35.99 a year. If you subscribe to Hallmark eCards you get a discount to sign up for Feeln. You may even get 1 month free.

  37. I called before but i still don’t understand how Roku works. I have a Visio Smart TV and I have a Samsung Smart TV. What Roku works for Arabic channels?

  38. The cable companies are fighting back. Comcast just modified its terms to limit internet bandwidth.

  39. Add the Own Network, and I’m sure would gain more business.

  40. Need to have a pick your channels package. Too many in the group packages that would not be watched making it not worth the money.

  41. Boy, I love Sling TV. Boy, having to pay a lot of money for cable and then getting introduced to Sling TV was a blessing. There are many channels to enjoy!!!

  42. Please add OWN, TV One and Centric.

  43. I’m thinking about trying Sling TV. I hope it will be worth it.

  44. Are u going to get Animal Planet soon?

  45. Once African American channels are added my family and I would highly consider purchasing. ASPiRE TV, Centric TV, TV One and BounceTV. Email me when these channels have been added to the lineup in one of the 3 packages not as add ons. Sling seems very racists right now!

  46. PLEASE GET TLC!!! I need to watch 90 Day Fiance.

  47. What’s up with Telemundo?

  48. So far I like everything about Sling, especially the user friendly account management and the effectiveness of its operation through Roku. I recently added a Roku Express to my account. I had already subscribed to Sling through a Roku Stick but eventually the stick was no longer reliable. So I installed the Roku Express. When I selected to watch Sling on the TV, bingo! Sling had already installed for use. I WOULD PAY $5 TO $10 MORE PER MONTH FOR BIG 10 NETWORK. SO WOULD MANY POTENTIAL SUBSCRIBERS.

  49. Animal Planet is the one I want most and I do not see it. Also does this include all on my local stations?

  50. Can I get CBS, NBC, and ABC local programming on Sling TV where I live in San Diego? My Zip Code is 92081.

    • Comcast can rip you off for that. $25 for basic, $7 for broadcast fee, $10 for a cable box and then taxes and fees. Would be nice if Sling could include it say for $5 or $10.

  51. Would love to have Velocity and Discovery channels on here. Is that in the works at all?

  52. I am thinking about switching to Sling but I need TLC. Please add this channel and then I will subscribe and do away with my cable.

  53. Mark Williams | January 8, 2017 at 9:00 pm | Reply

    Would like to see Fox News, Fox Business, and Big Ten Network.

  54. Really wanting to try out Sling TV but can’t without the Velocity channel!

  55. How can you say, “Take back TV”, When you are not including everyone as your audience? I mean: You have BET, but BET is not a popular network for me. Where are the other channels such as OWN, TV1, or Centric? I want to take back TV, too. But give me a reason to choose, Sling TV.

  56. Need Velocity channel…

  57. Is there a way to get Cook HD or channel #163, Food HD, or #162 and DYHD or #161? I also really enjoy all of Cook’s Country on KLRU, and the Saturday afternoon food show on KLRU, like the Italian and Asian cooking. Please let me know how to get these? I also enjoy “Hot Bench” a 3 judge panel for court debates. I do not know which channel or network this is on.

    Thank you in advance,
    Lois Spencer

  58. Want to leave the big cable company. Please include the African American channels as well… not as an added cost… to be fair. Thanks.

    • Sharon, I used to have a Dish satellite (who owns Sling) and it was the same thing… none of the African American channels were included in the basic package (not even BET, although MTV and VH1 were). One had to move to a higher package to get the AA channels. So, I’m not surprised at all to hear that Sling has no AA channels. If Sling does eventually add AA channels, it will most likely be at a higher cost, like how it was with Dish. But do look around, there are other streaming services that offer these channels. I’ve cut the cord and currently have BET, Centric, and OWN through my new provider. Good luck!

  59. No TLC? THAT’S THE MAIN CHANNEL I WANT. UNTIL THEN, IT’S A NO GO FOR ME.

  60. Really wish you would get TLC.

  61. Do y’all carry Discovery and Velocity Channel?

  62. LuJuan McMullen | February 9, 2017 at 1:59 am | Reply

    Think you’ll ever include the CW channel? This is one of my favorite channels.

  63. Without Fox News and Fox Business Network, forget about it. I wonder if exclusion is political? If it is a Liberal/Left owned company then they hate Fox… or Fox is selfish in their sharing outside of cable networks.

  64. Why not FOX News? I may have to cancel.

  65. Holy cow, the family I daycare for just dumped Dish and got Sling and it’s HORRID. No TV guide to help you choose. Have to constantly put in pin. When all the kids are home and homework done, and tablets and computer are allowed… constant constant glitches. The constant glitches make you crazy. I guess they are saving money… but so far only ONE local channel… it’s really not all that great.

  66. Doesn’t have channel 9. Want to change packages.

  67. We watch a lot of local channel networks, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, and FOX. Any chance of adding these in the future?

  68. Gaye Wallace | March 7, 2017 at 2:54 am | Reply

    We tried Sling and I really liked the selection of programs that we had, but the problem was it kept buffering when we tried to tune in to the shows we wanted to watch. It would either keep buffering or if it finally connected, the program would play for a bit and then stop and when we tried to go back to it, we couldn’t get it to come back. So we dropped Sling. Hopefully, that will improve and we can go back to them, because we really liked the package that we had. In fact, we had everything that we had on cable for about half the cost. I really hope to be able to got back to Sling.

  69. Gaye Wallace | March 7, 2017 at 3:11 am | Reply

    Forgot to mention that my husband really liked the Velocity channel. That was one of his favorite cable channels. It would be nice if it were added to the lineup. Also, can’t you do something about getting a guide? It is an awful lot of trouble to have to sift through everything in order to find the program you want to watch. It takes way too long to do that. Hope you will get the bugs worked out soon so we can come back to Sling. Don’t know what caused the problems with getting the shows to play, but it was frustrating.

  70. Well, I’ve tried it but I am going back to Spectrum internet/TV package. One, I used the Sling app with my Amazon Fire Stick but found the TV guide was cumbersome. Drilling down several screens to see what was on or what was scheduled later was not fun. Two, the buffering was annoying. Three, it doesn’t include my PBS stations which I now realize I watch more frequently than I thought. Given the outrageous price my provider would charge for internet only, it wasn’t that huge of a savings after all. It’s slightly disappointing.
