All you have to do is open up Sling TV and enter your email address, and you can enjoy access to the service every night from 5 p.m. through to midnight (ET) for the foreseeable future.

Unlike other deals, you don’t have to worry about handing over credit card information, signing up for anything, or committing to a subscription plan. There’s absolutely no catch here. Sling TV is just handing out free access to the nation as a good way of entertaining you while you’re stuck indoors.

With dozens of different choices, you won’t run out of options via Sling TV either.

Sling offers unlimited access to more than 50 different live channels. That includes something for everyone. There are news stations like CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, alongside family-friendly channels such as Nick Jr and Cartoon Network. Keen to check out the big dramas and comedy shows? Sling also gives you access to FX, Bravo, AMC, Syfy, Paramount, and Comedy Central.

Movie fans won’t miss out either. Sling offers tons of different movies too with plenty of new titles, alongside classics like Top Gun. In all, you get access to over 50,000 different movies and TV shows.

Up to three screens can watch Sling TV simultaneously so the whole household can try something different throughout the evening. The only catch to Sling TV Happy Hour is you can only watch between 5 p.m. and midnight ET but that’s a small price to pay for such a comprehensive free offer. After all, you don’t have to sign up for anything or enter your credit card details, right? What more could you want?

Sling TV works on multiple devices including the majority of smart TVs, Roku, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast.

Today’s best Sling TV deals

Sling TV is one of the more affordable ways to stream live TV online because it allows you to customize what kind of content you’re paying for. Basketball fans should make it a top consideration, as Sling currently has a package available that ensures you'll have access to all of the NBA playoffs. Sling offers two base subscription packages, Orange and Blue. Sling Orange is focused on sports and family entertainment, while Sling Blue is primarily focused on news and general entertainment. You can also buy a subscription to both Orange and Blue. Other packages are available that add channels not available through either base plan. Unfortunately there is no Sling TV free trial happening right now.
