What do you need to get Sling TV?

The first thing you need to get Sling TV is a compatible device. Sling is available on most web browsers, mobile devices, game consoles, set-top boxes and smart TVs. You can even stream through a streaming device like Google Chromecast. See all supported devices.

Beyond the right device, you need a strong Internet connection.

According to Sling.com, you’ll need an Internet connection of at least 3 Mbps to stream, but you’ll want a package of at least 25 Mbps to ensure a smooth streaming experience for households with multiple devices.

How does Sling TV compare?

Check out our Streaming Service Comparison Table to see how Sling TV compares to the top streaming services, like Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube TV, Apple TV, and more.

Is Sling TV Worth It?

While Sling TV is a popular live TV streaming service, it doesn’t offer local channels. An HD antenna could be a solution, however, antennas aren’t always reliable. With similar price points between Sling TV and the offerings from more traditional cable TV providers, choosing a provider like Optimum, Spectrum, Xfinity, etc. may offer a better experience for viewers. Most cable TV providers now offer many of the same benefits — on-the-go streaming, cloud DVR storage, add-on packages, etc. And with those providers, you’ll also get reliable access to all your local networks.
