Sling TV is now offering all paid subscribers a free preview of BET+ and Revolt. Considering these are both paid add-ons, a free preview can be a good way to check these premium networks out before paying for an additional subscription.

As these free previews have been made available to celebrate Black History Month, both free previews will remain available through the remainder of February. The free preview officially started yesterday (Feb. 14), so existing subscribers should find they already have access to both premium networks through the live guide and on-demand sections of the Sling app.

BET+ offers access to more than 1,000 hours of content, including the latest episodes of All the Queen’s Men and Tyler Perry’s Ruthless. Co-founded by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Revolt markets itself as “the unapologetic, authoritative voice of Hip Hop culture.”

As is usually the case with Sling’s free previews, both BET+ and Revolt are available to all of Sling’s paid subscribers. In other words, those signed up to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, and the combined Orange & Blue plan. In contrast, Sling Freestream users won’t be able to access either free preview without upgrading to a paid live TV package.

For those that would like to retain access to BET+ after the free preview comes to an end, the premium streaming service is available to add to any Sling live TV package for an additional $10 a month.

Revolt, on the other hand, is only available as part of the Entertainment Extra add-on. Previously known as Comedy Extra, the Entertainment Extra add-on unlocks access to 10 additional channels for an additional $6 a month.

Earlier this month, Sling launched a new Rewards program that offers subscribers the chance to win a cash reward for watching movies, shows, sports, and more.
