Sling TV’s Anniversary Deals Benefit Everybody, Even Existing Subscribers

What’s better than a company making up holidays? When the company hands out discounts to new and returning subscribers. Even better? When the company hands out freebies to existing users too. Sling TV is now five years old, and it wants to celebrate with good deals and free channels.

Sling TV debuted five years ago, and in honor of that, it wants to declare February 9th, 2020, as “National Cord Cutting Day.” If we’re honest, the company is probably looking for any excuse to offer some good discounts and drum up new subscribers, but “weak excuse to offer discounts day” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Weak excuse or no, Sling TV put together some pretty good deals for everybody. Most of the time, companies leave existing subscribers out in the cold when discounts come along, but Sling TV didn’t do that entirely in this case. While the existing users can’t take advantage of the rest of the deals, they will get temporary access to additional channels for free.

From February 7th to February 11th, existing users can watch Comedy Extra, Kids Extra, Lifestyle Extra, News Extra, and Sports Extra (if you don’t already have those channels through the Total TV deal). It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing.

If you’re not a current Sling TV subscriber, the discounts are better. From now until February 11th you can sign up and get your first month of basic Sling TV service for $5 instead of the usual $30. Unfortunately, Sling TV’s options are a little convoluted. Basic plans come in Blue or Orange, and each features access to different channels (with some overlap).

You can only stream to one device with the Orange plan, while you can stream up to three devices with Blue. If you want both sets of channels, then you can subscribe to both Blue and Orange. If you jump on Blue+Orange now, it’ll set you back $20 for the first month instead of the usual $45.

Regardless of the plan you choose, prices go back to standard levels after the first month. But if you’ve been on the fence about trying Sling TV, and a seven-day free trial isn’t long enough to decide, now’s the time to subscribe. Maybe you will finally cut the cord, and that could be a holiday after all.
