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.

The 3 best Prime Day QLED TV deals
TCL 55-inch Class Q5 Q-Class 4K QLED TV -- $300, was $450

Not every QLED TV has to cost an arm and a leg, and we're happy to see that TCL is offering a pretty well-sized 55-inch QLED TV for what is essentially peanuts. Even more impressively, it still has a ton of great features, including HDR 10+ which you usually see in TVs that are double the price, as well as HLG, the HDR standard used by many sports broadcasters. Sadly, it doesn't have a faster 120Hz refresh rate, but it does have Motion Rate 240, which is an image-smoothening technology that tries to recreate the feel of a faster refresh rate. Besides that, it has support for DTS Virtual:X and AMD FreeSync, so it's a pretty versatile TV, and for just $230, it's a steal.
