How a secure VPN works with Sling TV

If you subscribe to Sling TV*, the popular U.S.-based “cord-cutting” service, you know that it lets you watch your favorite channels live over the internet, without cable.

ExpressVPN can enhance this service by letting you stream privately, securely, and free from content-based throttling, no matter where you are—even on public Wi-Fi.

Stream all of your favorite channels at home or abroad

Cord-cutting services get their name because they allow you to watch live TV over the internet, without the hassle, expense, or long-term contracts required by cable or satellite providers, and without tethering yourself to a physical address. Different services offer different channels, and they’re often broken up into groups and tiers of service (in this case, Blue and Orange). The best of them can even give you access to regional sports networks and local stations. Check the service’s website to see what channels are available to you.
