But three ESPN channels are available with Sling Orange, so it really depends which sports you are looking to watch. We've put together a dedicated Sling TV channels guide to help you make up your mind.
If you like bits of each, go for the combined Blue and Orange package that gives you the best of both worlds for $50 a month. Still not satisfied? Sling has lots of extras that can be added to your basic plan for their own monthly fees. These include Comedy Extra, Sports Extra and Hollywood Extra.
