Get a Month of Sling TV for free for Cyber Monday

If you’ve been able to make it back to your parent’s house this holiday, there’s one comforting thing that they always have on hand. Yes, great food, but besides that, cable. With younger generations turning to streaming services for their entertainment (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO to name a few), it’s hard to justify the bill for your cable subscription. But suppose you long for the good old days of cable. In that case, Sling is offering a fantastic Cyber Monday deal where you can buy one month of the streaming service and get one month entirely for free. That means all the device versatility of streaming with all the choice of cable. We also have plenty of other fantastic Cyber Monday streaming deals such as this Hulu Cyber Monday deal available right now that gets you Hulu for a year for under $25.

If you foresee yourself hunkered down on the couch for the next couple of months (which many of us do), this is a Cyber Monday sale that you can’t pass up. Sling is already a great value at only $30 per month. Now, with this deal, you’re getting two months at half the price! That’s over 50 channels and thousands of movies for only $15 a month for the first two months! If you need it broken down further, that’s 30 cents a channel!

How does Sling TV work?

The great thing about Sling is, the company takes all the good cable channels and bundles them up, getting rid of all the filler. The way it works is this. There’s a Blue and an Orange package. Both packages come with no contracts and ten hours of free DRV.

  • The Blue package is geared more toward news and entertainment. It has channels like TNT, Fox News, CNN, AMC, and FX. The Orange package is good if you have a family or are into sports.
  • The Orange package features ESPN, CNN, Nick Jr, AMC, and TNT. The Blue package allows you to stream on three devices, while the Orange only lets you stream on one. Essentially, it all comes down to where your priorities lie.

The cherry on top of this deal is that if you sign up now, you’ll get access to the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championships on January 11. So you can start planning the watch party now! This can also be an excellent gift for your parents or someone else that has been considering breaking up with their cable company for years. With a deal like this, it should make it easy for them to make the switch. And if they don’t like it, they can end it with no hassles. Whatever you do, don’t sleep on these fantastic Cyber Monday deals.

How To Cut the Cord and Sign Up for Sling TV

Now that virtually every major media company has a streaming service, conventional cable subscriptions are starting to seem like a thing of the past. More and more people are cutting the cord and ditching the service altogether, but getting rid of cable can be a big adjustment. There are plenty of shows on services like Netflix, HBO Max, and Disney+, but none of those streamers has any live sports, at least not at their basic subscription level. Other live events are also absent from streaming services, including awards shows. What's more, if you're interested in watching a certain show as it airs, it can be difficult to do that without cable.

Thankfully, services like Sling TV exist. The service can effectively replace a cable package, allowing you to watch live TV as well as a variety of on-demand movies and TV shows for a lower price than what most cable subscriptions cost. Sling offers two packages, Sling TV Blue and Sling TV Orange. Sling has more than 50 channels on its service, and each package offers a different combination of channels based on what you're interested in. Sling TV Blue offers more channels focused on news and entertainment, while Sling TV Orange prioritizes sports channels and family-friendly content. Blue includes channels like CNN, FX, Fox News, NBC, TLC, and the NFL Network, while Orange includes ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, ESPN+, and the Disney Channel.

The 10 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)
From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the movies that have defined Adam Sandler's career to date.
best adam sandler movies ranked adamsandler

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and we know that in part because he's made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he may have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends.
