How can I add these channels to my subscription?

If you’re already subscribed to one of the services listed above, these new channels will automatically be added to your subscription.

To add an additional service such as Heartland Extra or News Extra, customers on select devices can add programming right through their Sling app! Look for the Add Premium Channels & More ribbon on your My TV screen. Click here for more information.

If you don’t see this option on your My TV screen, you can log in to your account at and use the Change Subscription link to add your programming there. Click here for details.

Ready to go? Click My Account in the top corner of this page (or tap the three horizontal lines if you’re on a smartphone or tablet) to get started.

I don’t see any of the new channels in my guide, what can I do?

Sometimes, the app just needs a chance to refresh. Try closing and re-opening the Sling app on your device. If that doesn’t work, try signing out of and back in to the app on your device. You can find the option to sign out by selecting Settings > Account > Sign Out on your device (start by tapping the three horizontal lines if you’re on a smartphone or tablet).

Can I record Discovery channels?

You bet! Use Cloud DVR to record your favorite Discovery programs and events.

Discovery networks also offer our three-day Lookback feature, so you’ll be able to go back and watch shows that have aired in the last three days. Click here for info on using our Lookback feature.

Will Discovery channels have On-Demand?

You bet! Catch up on past episodes or binge your favorites like Gold Rush, Mythbusters, or People Magazine Investigates. 

Will you be launching any more channels?

We’re always on the lookout for new channels to add to our service, and we’re listening when you tell us what you want to watch. Have another channel in mind you’d like to see on Sling? Submit your request here
