Sling TV is best for money savers
Get some of your favorite cable channels for $35 per month
What do we like about Sling TV?
Sling TV has a great price tag for 30+ popular channels
There aren’t many decent live TV streaming services out there that offer a good chunk of popular channels for $35, making it perfect for those who want to cut the cord because of that expensive cable bill.
You won’t have to give up on TV altogether. Thanks to Sling, you won’t have to break the bank.
Just try not to spend that extra money you’ll be saving on online shopping (or maybe that’s why you’re making cuts elsewhere in your life).
Which Sling TV package is best for you and the fam?
Both Sling Orange and Sling Blue are the same price, but both plans have almost a completely different channel lineup. And the Sling Orange + Blue package is basically a combination of both.
If you have kids, you’ll want Sling Orange. You’ll get Cartoon Network and Disney Channel for the little ones, and ESPN and Food Network for you.
If you love news channels, get Sling Blue. You can watch Fox News, MSNBC, and NBC. But if you want them all, Sling Orange + Blue is for you.

What don’t we like about Sling TV?
You get what you pay for with Sling TV
Yes, Sling TV is on the cheaper side, but that also means you might not get all of your favorite channels.
You’ll absolutely find a lot of popular channels in their packages (the reason it makes the low price so great), but you won’t get your ABC, The CW, Nickelodeon, or Telemundo.
As for the sports channels … Let’s just say Sling tends to the average sports fan. Sling offers the following sports channels:
Sling TV has a DVR storage of 50 hours
Sling TV now includes 50 hours of DVR storage in your service, and it officially doesn’t have the lowest storage space in the live TV streaming service world.
AT&T TV only offers a measly 20!
With Sling, now you have the choice to upgrade to a 200-hour DVR storage for an extra $5 per month to make your monthly bill $40–$55.
Oh, and just a heads up: when your DVR storage is full, and you happen to record another show, your old or already watched recordings will erase in your library (without warning).
