Sling TV is pushing out an update to give users more options for watching local channels with their AirTV Mini device. AirTV Mini users can now add local channels from Locast to their Sling TV channel guide.
If Locast is available in your area, you can stream local channels including ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC for free. With the new AirTV Mini update, those channels will be added right into your Sling TV guide with no need for an OTA antenna.
Here are the markets that can get local channels for free with Locast:
- Los Angeles
- New York
- Puerto Rico
- Rapid City
- San Francisco
- Sioux City
- Sioux Falls
- Tampa Bay
- Washington DC
- West Palm Beach
Haven’t picked up an AirTV Mini yet? Sling TV has a deal for you. When you prepay for two months of Sling, you can get a free AirTV Mini. Connect your new device with your Sling subscription and you’ll get 30+ live channels, plus free local channels with Locast.
Sling TV subscriptions start at $35/month. Locast is a free streaming service but will send notifications asking for a $5 monthly donation. If you’re new to Sling, be sure to check out the Sling Fling event, happening now. During the primetime hours from February 9-14, Sling wants to introduce new customers to its service with over 100 live and on-demand channels from both Sling Orange and Sling Blue. The event will also include free access to Showtime.
