To access the guide on your Android TV, start by pressing the Down arrow on your remote. You can also access the guide by opening your menu and navigating to GUIDE.

The first row includes options for filtering your channels by genre, switching the guide view you’re seeing, and the ability to look ahead at what’s coming up on Sling TV.

Selecting the date in the upper-right corner allows you to see what will be available up to seven days from the current date.

To navigate the grid, use the Up, Down, Left, & Right buttons on your remote to see what’s currently streaming or coming up on each channel, up to seven days in advance. To see a description of a program, highlight it in the guide, then press Select on your remote.

To view live and Available Now content from each channel, scroll down and select a channel icon.

Selecting a channel from the Grid Guide or selecting the Channels toggle will bring up the original Sling TV guide view.


Your original guide screen will provide the following three ribbons: channels by icon, the current Schedule, and any Available Now content.  

Scroll right on the Schedule ribbon to see any future content, or scroll to the left to view past airings using our Replay feature for previously aired content in your schedule bar. For more information on the Replay feature click here.

All Available Now content will be displayed below the current schedule. Scroll right to see what is available! The variety of content, as well as length of availability, varies by channel.


To exit the guide, simply select the channel or program you’d like to watch by using the Select button on your remote.

If your Sling TV application does not look like the experience displayed above, try updating the Sling TV app on your Android TV. To learn how to do so, click here.
