 Sling TV will soon launch its "Freeview Weekends" experience. The new feature will give paid subscribers access to select standalone streaming services free of cost, every weekend through August 2022. "Sling launched in 2015 with one goal in mind: provide people easy access to their favorite shows and content, without a bloated monthly bill," said Gary Schanman, executive vice president and group president of Sling TV. 

During Freeview Weekends, customers have access to standalone streaming services' live schedule and on-demand content library. Most Freeview offerings will start Friday and run through Monday. Premium streaming services currently slated in the preview lineup include EPIX, Hallmark Movies Now, Curiosity Stream, Sundance Now, AMC+ and more.

Beginning tomorrow, 24th June, existing subscribers can access the Freeview experience; the select weekly Freeview service will be automatically available on users' home page and within the guide through the duration of the Freeview with no strings attached. "This sentiment holds true today - if a user wants to subscribe to any of our nearly 50 premium standalone services à la carte, they can do it. And now with Freeview Weekends, our current subscribers can 'try before they buy' every Summer weekend with no strings attached by simply turning on Sling to ensure they pay only for what they want to watch." 

With nearly 50 standalone streaming services, including SHOWTIME, EPIX and Starz, available without a  base Sling subscription, SLING provides the best à la carte streaming experience on the market. In addition to the Freeview content, Sling offers a variety of today's most popular channels, including CNN, ESPN, Bravo and AMC, through its base services, SLING Orange and Sling Blue, starting at $35 per month. Plus, new subscribers currently receive HALF OFF base services their first month at Sling.com.
