Sling TV Launches Stay in & Sling for FREE News and Entertainment

Today, Sling TV launched Stay In & Sling, meant to give Americans free access to news and entertainment while we deal with the COVID-19 crisis. Sling is providing news, plus thousands of shows and movies for the whole family, with no paid SLING TV account required.

“To stay informed in these uncertain times, Americans need access to news from reputable sources,” said Warren Schlichting, group president, SLING TV. “With many Americans finding themselves staying at home, we have an opportunity to use our platform to help them deal with this rapidly evolving situation.”

With this free Sling TV experience, you’ll get news from ABC News Live, a 24/7 streaming video news channel for breaking news and live events. Stay In & Sling also offers thousands of movies and shows suitable for kids and families.

How to Access the Sling TV Free Experience

Start by downloading the Sling TV app on a Roku, Amazon or Android device, or by visiting sling.com on a Chrome, Safari or Edge browser and following the instructions on the welcome screen.

Current Sling TV subscribers can access free content within the app without making any changes to their subscription.
