What’s Missing?

Those who were using PlayStation Vue to watch live, local channels will notice that those channels are missing from the Sling TV lineup. There’s a solution for that. With an antenna, viewers in select cities can get their local channels for no additional fee. Making it even easier, Sling offers a free antenna. Visit their website to learn more.
