Sling TV is a streaming service that caters to folks looking for a way to cut down their cable bill. With two different options that offer up different channel lineups, there's something here for everyone. Sling Orange is the Sports and Family lineup. It features seven exclusive channels, with favorites like ESPN, The Disney Channel, and Freeform. 

Including live sports and kids channels like the aforementioned Disney Channel and Nick Jr., there is also a heavy dose of entertainment with Comedy Central, AMC, and more. Below we’ve broken down what you'll get from a Sling Orange package: the channels exclusive to the plan alongside the full line-up, plus the exciting Extras available to enliven your streaming experience.

Opt for either its Orange or Blue plan (or both) and new and returning customers can currently save 50% off their first month of Sling TV. That brings the price down from $40 to $20. Or, if you opt for both, it'll cost $30 for your first month of both the Blue and Orange packages.

Sling Orange explained: what is the package and how does it differ from the Blue plan?

Sling TV Orange is made up of 32 channels from the Sling TV channels roster. It includes three ESPN channels, MotorTrend, the Disney Channel, and Freeform, describing itself as the perfect package for NBA coverage and families, while Sling Blue is tailored for those who want more entertainment and news.

ESPN provides coverage of everything from football, boxing, basketball, tennis, and golf, while car enthusiasts can enjoy Top Gear and more on MotorTrend. 

There’s heaps of child-oriented programming courtesy of the Disney Channel. Meanwhile, Freeform provides even more movies and TV shows aimed at families – for example, The Lion King, Grown-ish, and 10 Things I Hate About You – but of a more grown-up, PG-rated nature.

The only other disparity between Sling Orange and Blue is the number of devices subscribers can stream to with each. A Sling TV Orange package lets one user login and watch content at a time, while Blue allows you up to three simultaneous streams.

How much does Sling Orange cost?

A Sling Orange subscription is $40 per month, which makes it an incredibly affordable option when compared to IPTV platforms like Hulu with Live TV and FuboTV. Currently you can also shave 50% off your first month thanks to one of the current best streaming deals available.

Not only do you get an enticing bundle of live channels and VOD content, but 50 hours DVR storage is thrown in for free - which just about makes up for the lack of a Sling TV free trial right now. That’s perfect for recording the latest football match or that explosive TV season finale. There’s no long-term contract, either – unlike cable – so you can cancel your membership at any time.
