Sling Watch Party: What to Watch with Friends & Family

Note: This post is in partnership with Sling TV.

Last week, Sling TV introduced a new Watch Party feature that allows users to invite friends and family to a virtual hangout while chatting and watching a show or movie together. Through September 30, Sling is allowing Watch Party guests to join a Sling Watch Party by simply creating a free Sling TV account.

Ready to start your party? Here are a few shows, movies, and events to watch with others this week.

The Walking Dead

With the season finale coming up on October 4 and a few spinoffs lined up, everyone is talking about this fan favorite AMC series again. The entire tenth season of The Walking Dead is now available on-demand, so settle in for a marathon before watching the series wrap up in a few days.

House Hunters International

Watch couples travel all over the world to look for their dream home, check out the options with them, and make your predictions about which house will be the winner. With a Watch Party, it can lead to some friendly competition.


Watch Party is bringing back movie nights, from a distance. There are tons of movies on-demand on Sling and many are available for Watch Parties, including Goodfellas which made its way to the streaming service earlier this month.

Joe Exotic: Tigers, Lies, and Cover-Up

Remember when stay at home orders first started and all we heard about was the Tiger King? He’s back and there are plenty of conspiracy theories and secrets being unearthed to keep us all talking. Let’s be honest, this is just more fun to watch with a friend. Otherwise, you’re just yelling “wait, what?!” to your TV alone.

First Presidential Debate

The first debate before the 2020 election will take place in Cleveland, Ohio on Tuesday, September 29 at 9:00 pm ET. The debate will air on many news channels, including CNN which you can view with a Watch Party on Sling while texting or video chatting all about it.
