Sling TV is currently offering a free preview of MLB Network to all Sling Orange, Sling Blue, and Sling Orange & Blue subscribers. The free preview went live yesterday and will remain available to all subscribers through July 4th.
MLB Network is one of the channels that isn’t available with any of Sling TV’s base plans. Instead, subscribers have to bundle the Sports Extra add-on with their base plan to get access to the channel. While Sports Extra does unlock access to more than ten additional sports channels, it also costs an additional $11 per month.
Right now, however, all Sling TV subscribers can watch MLB Network for free. The channel has been unlocked as part of a free preview that started yesterday (June 30) and will remain unlocked through July 4th. It is important to note here that it is only MLB Network that’s been unlocked, not the Sports Extra add-on.
For those currently considering Sling TV as a live TV provider, they too will gain access to the free MLB Network preview if they sign up before July 4th. Both of Sling TV’s base plans cost a minimum of $40 per month and mainly differ in the selection of channels.

It is also worth noting that the MLB Network free preview is only the first of many that are taking place over the next few weeks. As part of a return of its Sling Freeview Weekends promotion, Sling TV subscribers will be getting access to a new free preview every weekend over the summer.
For those interested in knowing what’s coming, here’s the schedule for Sling’s free previews:
|MLB Network||June 30-July 4|
|Hallmark Channel||July 7-10|
|Kids Extra Pack||July 21-25|
|Paramount Network||July 28-31|
As is always the case with a free preview, subscribers don’t have to do anything to gain access to the channel other than tune in through the live guide. They also don’t have to worry about canceling anything either, as access will automatically be revoked at the end of the free period.
