Sling TV’s Freeview Weekends summer campaign may have come to an end with MGM Plus in August, but it doesn’t look like Sling has finished offering free previews this year. The latest takes place this weekend and unlocks access to Pac-12 Networks.


With football season back in full swing, consumers will likely need to bounce between channels and services to catch most of the games. When it comes to the 2023 Pac-12 Conference, the season kicked off on August 26 and is due to come to an end on December 1, 2023.

For those wanting to watch any of the Pac-12 Conference games, they will need access to Pac-12 Network. If you’re a Sling TV subscriber, however, you can check out all of the games taking place over this weekend for free.


Sling TV’s Pac-12 free trial begins Friday, September 15 and runs through Sunday, September 17, and unlocks access to all Pac-12 Networks. During this period, subscribers to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, and Sling Orange & Blue will find all of the Pac 12 Networks (including Pac-12 Mountain, Pac-12 Washington, Pac-12 Bay Area, and Pac-12 Los Angeles) available in the Guide section.

Interestingly, and unlike previous Freeview Weekends, it would seem that former Sling subscribers also have access to this weekend’s Pac-12 Networks free trial. Presumably, as long as you’ve been a subscriber in the past, you will be able to log in with the same account details and access any of the Pac-12 Networks for free.

For those that are still signed up to Sling and interested in retaining access for the remainder of the season, Pac-12 Networks is available to add to any existing Sling TV base package through the $11 a month Sports Extra add-on.


For those completely new to Sling TV, or considering returning, the live TV service is still offering its half-off deal which reduces the price of the first month down to as low as $20.

Alternatively, Sling is also still running a separate promotion that allows new subscribers to get Sports Extra, including Pac-12 Network, for free for 5 months when signing up to any base plan and prepaying for 5 months in advance.

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.
