Sling TV app now to offer free content without base subscription

Last week, Sling TV introduced a new user experience, offering free programming, à la carte channels, pay-per-view events and more without purchasing a base subscription.

"When we first launched Sling in 2015, we set out to create an entertainment experience that put our customers first, offering unprecedented flexibility and control – no annual contracts, no hidden fees and the ability to customize programming," said Warren Schlichting, president of Sling TV. "The new Sling evolves the experience even further by providing access to great content without anchoring customers to a base subscription."

That basically means more Sling TV options for customers. At launch, the new Sling experience is available to returning Sling customers on Roku devices. The new experience will expand to additional Sling-supported devices in the near future. Watch free content, without a base subscription

Upon re-opening the Sling TV app, returning customers can now access more than 100 hours of free TV shows and movies without restarting their subscription. Ribbons within the "My TV" interface dedicated solely to free shows and movies will highlight top content, which at launch will include "Wrecked," "The Detour," "Good Behavior," "Flip or Flop" and more. Additionally, Sling TV has launched three new à la carte on-demand channels, including Stingray Karaoke, Dove Channel, and Outside TV Features, available now without a Sling TV subscription. Current and returning Sling TV customers may also add these channels to their subscription and watch content from these channels right in the app, through Sling TV’s new user experience. Three on-demand networks, Dove Channel, Outside TV Features and Stingray Karaoke, launched today on Sling TV, joining other à la carte on-demand channels, including CuriosityStream, Pantaya and Up Faith & Family. Each channel may be purchased separately month-to-month and accessed through the Sling TV app alongside free shows and other purchased content. Monthly pricing for à la carte channels is below: Showtime: $10 CuriosityStream: $6 Stingray Karaoke: $7 Dove Channel: $5 Outside TV Features: $5 Up Faith & Family: $5 Pantaya: $6 NBA League Pass: $28.99
