Looking for something new to watch this weekend? How does free cable sound? You’re in luck: Sling TV is offering the entire nation free access to its service from 5 PM through midnight (ET) every night for the foreseeable future as part of an exciting new promotion it’s calling Happy Hour.

There’s no commitment, either — you don’t need to enter any credit card information or agree to hand over a wad of cash in a month’s time. It’s the perfect way to stay entertained this weekend, especially as you’ve still got time to catch the remainder of the NFL Draft 2020.

Wondering what to do once you’ve finished watching the NFL Draft? No problem! Sling has dozens of different choices, offering unlimited access to more than 50 different live channels, with over 50,000 different movies and shows to pick from. There’s something for everyone here with news stations like CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News keeping you informed, to family-friendly stations like Nick Jr and Cartoon Network.

If you want to check out the latest big hits, you can also watch FX, Bravo, AMC, Syfy, Paramount, and Comedy Central all through Sling’s Happy Hour promotion. You’ve got access to popular shows like The Big Bang Theory, Ducktales, Killing Eve, The Daily Show, and much more. Movie fans are well served, too, with newer hits as well as classics like Top Gun and The Hunger Games trilogy.

The only limitation here is that it’s only free between 5 PM and midnight ET, otherwise you can watch absolutely anything that would normally be available on Sling. It’s a fantastic offer, and don’t forget — you don’t even need to enter your credit card details to enjoy it. No strings attached.

Up to three screens can watch Sling TV simultaneously so the whole family can try something different at the same time. Sling TV works with multiple devices including the majority of smart TVs, Roku, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast.

Why wait? Sign up to Sling TV now so you have some awesome entertainment lined up every night this weekend, and then for the foreseeable future.
