Sling TV is raising prices for new subscribers now and existing subscribers later this year

Sling TV has announced that they are raising prices by $5 per month for new subscribers, making their Sling Orange and Sling Blue plans $35 per month. The cost of Sling TV’s various extra add-on packages are also increasing by $1 per month. When YouTube TV and Fubo TV both raised prices last year, Sling TV took the opportunity for some good publicity by announcing that they would not be raising prices for existing customers for a full year. That means existing Sling TV customers won’t be paying the new higher prices until July 2021. To help soften the price increase a little, Sling TV has also announced that they’re upping their Free DVR offering from 10 to 50 hours, and increasing the paid DVR package, which still costs $5 per month, from 50 to 200 hours.

Get a Free Tivo Stream 4K w/ Sling TV Subscription
Get 1-Month Free w/ Sling TV Subscription

Sling TV is offering a few Black Friday deals of their own for new subscribers. If you pre-pay for 2 months of service, they’ll give you a Tivo Stream 4K for Free. Since Sling TV costs $30/month, it’s like getting 2 months for $10 if you were already thinking of getting a $50 Tivo Stream 4K. If you’re not interested in the Android TV media player, you can instead get 1 month Free of Sling TV after paying for the first month. For that offer, just scroll down the page and look for the deal button listed under the “BOGO” offer. You’re free to cancel your subscription after the included 2 months of service with either of these offers. If neither of those offers sounds appealing, you can also just get 1 month for $20, which is a savings of $10. That offer is at the very bottom of this page.
