FAQ: Stream Sling online with a VPN

Does ExpressVPN come with a Sling account?

ExpressVPN does not come with a Sling TV account. You’ll need to purchase a Sling TV account separately.

Can I watch Sling on more than one device at the same time?

With a Sling Orange subscription, you can only watch Sling on one device. But with Sling Blue, you can watch Sling on three separate screens. You can also subscribe to both Sling Blue and Orange to stream on four separate devices simultaneously. Because you can use one ExpressVPN subscription on up to five devices at the same time, you can stream as much Sling TV as you’d like.

Do I still have to deal with commercials with Sling TV?

Yes. Because Sling TV is a live streaming service, the commercial breaks remain the same. A VPN can’t help you there.

What else can I do with my VPN?

Great question! You can also use ExpressVPN with Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, and many other popular services.
