We’ve added some new features to your Roku that make it easier to watch (and re-watch) your favorite content on Sling TV, even if you're not subscribed to it.





If you’re a current subscriber with a Roku device, you can add a service or channel to your account straight from the Sling TV app and quickly start watching your favorite shows and movies.
Find something you like and want to watch over and over? We'll also show you how you can quickly add Cloud DVR to your subscription.


Returning to Sling TV? Catch up on the shows you’ve missed by restarting your subscription in just three clicks.


Let’s take a look at how. Choose an option below to get more information:


Current Customers - Add Programming


If you’re currently a Sling TV subscriber, head to the Featured Shows, Featured Movies, or Featured Sports ribbons on your My TV screen. Here, you’ll see shows from services you’re not currently subscribed to. You can pick these out by looking for the Add icon in the upper-right corner of the show poster.



Once you’ve selected a program you’d like to see more of, the next screen will show you how much the add-on will cost, and other channels you’ll get.


Select Purchase Now to finish up adding your new service. You’ll be billed right away for your new service. For more information on how you’ll be billed for your Sling TV service, click here.



If you don't wish to see content you're not subscribed to, simply visit your Sling app Settings to disable the Display Unsubscribed Content feature.



Current Customers - Add Cloud DVR


Ever watch a show or movie and think how great it'd be to watch it again and again, on your schedule? Now, you can easily add Cloud DVR right through your Sling TV app!


If you don't currently have Cloud DVR, there are a few different ways you can add it in-app. First, when checking out show information, simply choose Add DVR. 



You can also add Cloud DVR when watching a show. Just hit OK on your Roku remote to bring up your Player Controls, and you'll see the option to add DVR.



Finally, you can add Cloud DVR by selecting DVR from the Settings menu.



Important Note: DVR functionality is available for all live content, except on the following channels:

  • All Disney and ESPN channels
    • This includes Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney JR, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPN Deportes, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Bases Loaded, ACC Network, and SEC Network
  • On-Demand only channels, including Local Now


One you select an option to add DVR, you'll be taken to a confirmation screen. To continue and add DVR, select Purchase.


Returning Customers
