Sling is one of the most affordable live streaming services on the market, offering impressive bang for your buck if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to cable. You can read our full Sling TV review here.

The service has two primary packages with over 30 channels each starting at just $35 a month. Below, we’ve broken down exactly what you’ll get with each plan and all the add-ons so you can decide which is best for your needs.

The 2 main packages — Sling Orange and Sling Blue — offer 30+ channels for $35 a month, or $50 combined

Sling’s two main offerings are Sling Orange and Sling Blue. Each plan is available to stream for $35 a month. You can also combine the two packages for $50 a month, giving you access to all 50+ channels Sling offers. For a limited time, new customers can get a free three-day trial of any plan.

Channels largely overlap between Blue and Orange, but there are a few differences that might push you to choose one over the other. Disney channel and ESPN networks are only included with Sling Orange. Meanwhile, Sling Blue offers networks like the Discovery Channel and a slate of Fox-owned and NBC-owned channels.

Blue also comes with local NBC and Fox networks, but only in select markets. Sling Orange doesn’t offer any local channels, so if you’re hoping to catch your local nightly news, Sling Blue is the way to go. 

Add-ons start at $6 a month if you’re looking for specific genres or channels

If you want to further enhance your channel selection, Sling offers a slate of genre-based add-ons starting at $6 a month. Each add-on, like Kids Extras, Sports Extras, and Lifestyle Extras, offers a mini-bundle of channels.

There are several premium add-ons as well, including Showtime ($10/month) and Starz ($9/month).
