If you’ve grown accustomed to the simplicity of streaming services, the prospect of purchasing a cable package may feel daunting. Traditional cable packages are expensive and often require you to pay for channels that you don’t want. As a time-traveling Timmy Turner once said to his horrified 10-year-old father, “In the future, there will be 500 TV channels… but nothing to watch.”
Sling TV offers a tempting alternative to traditional cable. It allows you to pick the channels you want to pay for and doesn’t require a cable box or a satellite dish. Instead, Sling TV offers an app-based approach to cable TV that feels right at home in the modern streaming landscape. To help you determine whether Sling TV is right for you, we’re breaking down the different packages that Sling offers, how much they cost, where you can watch them, and more.
What is Sling TV?

The app is available through iOS, Apple TV, Xbox, Oculus, Fire TV, Android, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku, AirTV Mini, Windows, Samsung, TiVo Stream 4K, and LG.
