Sling TV is currently offering free AMC Plus to new subscribers when signing up, while existing subscribers can save 50% on the cost of an AMC Plus subscription. Although the deal for existing subscribers doesn’t seem quite as good, the discount does last longer. Either way, this can be a good way to test out AMC Plus at a cheaper price than usual.


AMC Plus is, as the name suggests, a subscription service from AMC. However, it does offer more than just access to additional AMC content, as a standard subscription also unlocks videos from Shudder, Sundance Now, and IFC Films Unlimited. All of which makes it a good way to add a variety of additional content to a home’s streaming setup.

Sling TV has now made it possible to subscribe to AMC Plus through the live TV guide and has launched a deal for existing subscribers to celebrate. Essentially, Sling Orange and Sling Blue subscribers can now add AMC Plus to their package and only pay 50% of the cost for each of the first three months. Considering the price of an AMC Plus subscription through Sling TV is $7.99 per month, this promotion brings the cost down to around $4 per month. Existing subscribers can add AMC Plus at 50% off up until October 2nd, 2022.


For new subscribers, Sling TV was already offering a deal which cut the price of the first month in half. In other words, new subscribers can sign up to either the Orange or Blue plan through the Sling website for just $17.50 for the first month. While Sling was also already offering Extra add-ons at half-off as well, it is now gifting AMC Plus for free for the first month to new subscribers. Similar to the deal for existing subscribers, this promotion is only available up until October 2nd, 2022.

As is always the case with deals and discounts like these, consumers will need to make sure they cancel the AMC Plus subscription through Sling if they don’t want to pay full price each month once the promotional period comes to an end. It is also worth noting that Sling TV has put together a handy 31 Things To Watch on AMC+ This October guide, which might come in handy for anyone who is unsure of whether an AMC Plus subscription is right for them.
