One of the benefits of a Sling TV subscription is the access to a variety of TV Everywhere apps and websites. Using these third-party apps and sites provides subscribers with the ability to watch more content, when they want, and where they want. However, while there are many TV Everywhere apps that Sling TV subscribers can access, not all networks and channels are currently supported.
TV Everywhere is not exclusive to Sling TV. Instead, it is a feature that is generally available through most of the main live TV streaming services. Just like how channel lineups vary depending on the service, the list of apps that a subscriber can access can also vary.
In other words, just because a channel is included with a live TV plan, Sling TV or otherwise, that doesn’t actually mean that the network app and website for that channel can also be access using TV Everywhere.
As there are some channels and networks that Sling TV subscribers cannot access outside of the Sling TV website and app, knowing which apps and sites are available is an important way to maximize the overall user experience.
Sling TV network apps and websites
Below is a current list of third-party network apps and websites that Sling TV subscribers can access.
Sling TV TV Everywhere support:

The list above includes all of the apps that Sling TV currently provides TV Everywhere support for. However, subscribers will only have TV Everywhere support for the channels included with their plan, or for any channels that they pay extra for through an add-on or upgrade.

It is also worth noting that, depending on a home’s individual subscription, they may have access to other network apps as well. For example, TV Everywhere support for beIN SPORTS is available to either Sling Orange or Sling Blue subscribers when bundling the Best of Spanish TV with their base live TV package.
Likewise, NBA TV TV Everywhere support is also available to Sling subscribers signed up to NBA League Pass or NBA Team Pass, TV5 Monde Plus is available to those signed up to Sling’s French Bouquet package, the SHAHID app for those signed up to SHAHID through Sling, and Globoplay for those signed up to Globoplay through Sling TV.
How to use TV Everywhere apps
Using TV Everywhere apps with a Sling TV subscription is a fairly simple process. While the exact instructions may vary depending on the app or website, the process will be overall similar to the instructions below.
- Open the network app or visit website
- Tap on Settings or Sign in (usually top-right corner)
- Tap on Manage TV Provider
- Scroll down or search for Sling TV
- Tap or click on Sling TV
- Sign in with Sling TV credentials.
Sling TV TV Everywhere limitations
There are some limitations that Sling TV subscribers might want to be aware of before using TV Everywhere and the first is that not every channel or network can be accessed using a Sling TV subscription.
Although all of the networks and channels listed above are currently supported, that could change at any time. Similar to how live TV plans tend to change in terms of the number and selection of channels that are included, TV Everywhere support for individual channels can be added or removed at any time.
Another limitation relates to the number of simultaneous streams that a Sling TV subscriber has access to.
While Sling TV offers the option to watch on a different number of devices at the same time depending on the plan, those same-time streams are specific to the Sling TV app and website.
Basically, if using a TV Everywhere app then the subscriber won’t automatically have access to the same number of simultaneous streams. Instead, they will be limited to the simultaneous streams policy set out by the third-party network app or website, which may result in a greater or fewer number of streams.
Sling TV TV Everywhere: recap
TV Everywhere can be a great way to increase the amount of movies and shows that a Sling TV subscriber has access to. Subscribers can take advantage of TV Everywhere support by simply signing in to a network app using their Sling TV credentials.
However, and while Sling TV does offer TV Everywhere support for many networks, it doesn’t offer support for every network and channel included with its live TV plans. There may also be other restrictions that result in additional limitations as well.
