Sling TV subscribers can watch Showtime for free over the weekend. Sling TV routinely makes premium networks available for subscribers to watch for free for a limited time, with Showtime now the latest example.

Compared to some other premium networks, Showtime has actually become somewhat of a regular addition to Sling’s Freeview Weekends program. Last month saw the live TV streaming service unlock access to SHOxBET and Showtime itself has been unlocked multiple times in the past.

This latest Showtime preview went live today (March 24) and is due to remain active through Monday (March 27). During this time, all Sling Blue, Orange, and Orange & Blue subscribers are free to watch at much Showtime as they like.

For reference, the preview not only unlock access to the main Showtime channel, but also Showtime 2, Showtime Extreme, Showtime Family, Showtime Showcase, Showtime Next, Showtime Women, and SHOxBET as well.

For those new to Sling TV, the Showtime free preview is also available to any new subscribers that sign up over the weekend. In fact, whether new to Sling or not, the live TV service is currently offering a free month of Showtime.

Unlike the current preview, the one-month free Showtime promotion does need to be manually activated. New subscribers can do this while signing up, and existing subscribers can add Showtime by heading over to the Sling TV website, logging in, heading to the Account section of the settings, and then adding the channel through the Edit Subscription section.

If opting to take advantage of the free month of Showtime offer, the subscriber will automatically be charged the full monthly cost of a Showtime subscription once the free month has come to an end, and unless canceled before then.

Hi John,
I signed up for sling TV in March and was offered a free trial of Showtime & MGM+ for 30 days. However, I did not add Showtime or MGM+ when I signed up for Sling TV on their website. I just selected the Blue package and the Comedy add on. Since I didnt add Showtime or MGM+, do I still need to cancel it? I cant see either one on my account, so I’m assuming they dont automatically add it if I didnt select it.

Hi Donna,

If you didn’t add Showtime or MGM+ (and don’t see them listed on your account) then you probably don’t have to worry about canceling them. Sling doesn’t automatically add either service.

Hope this helps,
