Sling TV is offering all subscribers a free preview of Paramount Network over this weekend. This is the latest freebie to be made available as part of the live TV service’s ongoing Freeview Weekends promotion.


Last weekend, Sling unlocked access to additional kids content by offering select channels from the Kids Extra add-on for free to subscribers. The weekend before that, all Sling TV subscribers received free access to Discovery Plus.

This weekend it is the turn of Paramount Network. Starting today (July 28) and through Monday (July 31), all Sling Blue, Sling Orange, and Sling Orange & Blue subscribers have access to Paramount Network for free.


As the free preview is already live, subscribers will find the Paramount Network channel listed as available for free in the live guide, and can immediately tune in to start watching. If interested in a particular Paramount Network show, it may also now be available to watch at any time in the On Demand section of the app or website.

For those that would like to retain access to Paramount Network after the free period, the channel can be added to any Sling plan through the Entertainment Extra add-on. Entertainment Extra (formerly Comedy Extra) costs an additional $6 a month and unlocks access to a variety of entertainment channels, including Paramount Network.

If totally new to Sling TV, the live TV streaming service is currently running a promotion which reduces the cost of the Orange or Blue base plans down to as little as $20 for the first month.


For any homes that do sign up over this weekend, they will also get access to the free preview of Paramount Network through Monday.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
