Additional Questions

Why do I need a credit card for a free trial?

We ask that you put a credit/debit card on file when signing up so that if you decide to keep your subscription beyond your free trial, no action will be needed by you. You’ll automatically transition to a paid subscription.

Don’t worry, we won’t charge your card until the end of the trial period.

I don’t see this experience on my Roku; what can I do?

We’re only releasing this new experience on a percentage of Roku devices to start.

Eventually, this new signup experience will be available on all Roku devices and on other devices compatible with SLING TV. 

In the meantime, if you’d like to start a subscription, you can still sign up through your Roku by following on-screen instructions, or by visiting
