Sling TV has a great selection of content available for free, but you must pay to “get the whole enchilada,” as the company says. While it’s one of the best live streaming TV services, it can get very pricey. The lowest plans go for $30 a month, and even with discounts the price doesn’t go below $20. If you are not convinced by the service and would prefer to cut your expenses, we can show you how to cancel Sling TV.

Alternatives: These are the best live streaming TV services you can find


Consider pausing your subscription first

Maybe you don’t really want to cancel Sling TV all the way. If you know you won’t need Sling TV for some time, but are thinking of re-activating your account later on, there is an option to pause your Sling TV subscription for 1-3 months.

The benefit to pausing your Sling TV subscription is that it will reactivate automatically. And if you only pause it for one month all your DVR recordings will continue to be there when the service is back in motion.

How to pause Sling TV subscription: 

  1. Sign into your Sling TV account.
  2. Access the My Account section.
  3. Under Your Subscription, click on Pause Subscription.
  4. Select how long you want to pause the subscription (one, two, or three months).
  5. Hit Next and follow on-screen instructions.

Your subscription will stay active for the duration of your current billing cycle, so make sure to plan accordingly.
