If you haven’t checked out Sling TV’s free “happy hour” every night, you’re almost out of time. The free promotion, which gives non-subscribers access to more than 50 live channels, is set to end May 15.
Sling TV started the offer about a month ago as a way to hopefully capture some new subscribers while everyone is stuck at home. From 5 p.m. to midnight every night, dozens of cable channels were available for no charge and with no subscription required.
Should you want to keep watching, you can get a Sling TV subscription for as low as about $20, but the free offering here was pretty much their Sling Blue package, which runs about $30 a month. There’s no extra equipment required to watch live TV with Sling TV, just their app on a smart phone or smart TV.
The company’s Stay in and Sling initiative, which offers on-demand content to non-subscribers, is still set to go on for a little while longer. With that promotion, you’ll get episodes of TV favorites like Roseanne, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and Hell’s Kitchen, plus a lot of comedy, action, and horror movies.
