Video On-Demand

We offer On-Demand content on many of our channels. The content and length of time available varies by channel.  To locate this content, launch your Guide.

Start by scrolling through your subscription’s channels to see which offer On-Demand content. If you're using a grid view, you can access the channels view by selecting a channel icon from your guide.

Once you've landed on the channel you're interested in, check out the ribbons below the Schedule. On Demand content may appear in ribbons labeled as On Demand, Available Now, or with genre names like Drama or Comedy.

Scroll through the available shows to find one of interest to you. Click on the title - or poster - to open additional information on the program.

important note icon Note: If the channel you've selected doesn't have a Schedule ribbon, it means you're watching an On-Demand only channel. You can start watching any of this content at any time you'd like!

Some shows offer multiple season or episodes.  Click on the episode you are interested in watching.

Sling offers the ability to replay content that has aired in the past three days on select channels. To tell if the channel you're watching offers the Lookback feature, check the Schedule ribbon. If you see a tile to the left of what's currently on now, the channel offers Lookback.

To access Replay content, start by selecting a channel using the Channels view of the Guide, and scroll down to the Schedule ribbon. All available Replay content remains in the current schedule ribbon, to the left of the content on now. Scroll, swipe, tap, or press left on the Schedule ribbon to see any previously aired episodes. Lookback content is available as far as three days prior to the current date and time.
