Sling TV is currently running a new promotion that reduces the cost of its live TV packages by $10 per month for the first four months. In total, this works out to be a $40 saving over four months, which is $20 more than the savings on offer with Sling’s half-off promotion.
Earlier this year, Sling TV restarted a popular half-off promotion, reducing the cost of its live TV plans by 50% for the first month. The deal makes it possible for new subscribers to sign up for as little as just $20 for the first month, with the price reverting to the usual $40+ cost in the second month.
For those that want to take advantage of this half-off deal to watch March Madness, they still can. However, for those that plan on remaining a subscriber after the tournament has ended, it may be worth considering the new promotion instead.
Sling TV is marketing its latest deal as “our best basketball offer yet.” Technically speaking, the half-deal is a cheaper way to watch March Madness if then canceling, but the newer promotion offers greater savings over a longer period.
Once activated, the promotion reduces the price of either Sling Orange or Sling Blue down to $30 per month for the first four months, resulting in a total saving of $40. Alternatively, the promotion can also be applied to the combined Sling Orange & Blue plan, reducing the price down to $45 per month for the first four months.
It is worth keeping in mind that these are the minimum prices that new subscribers will pay. Sling TV recently introduced an ABC fee in select locations, so some subscribers may end up paying $35 per month for Orange or Blue, or $50 per month for Orange & Blue, when using the promotion in areas where ABC is available.
