Stream all 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. The best of them can even give you access to regional sports networks and local stations. Different services offer different channels, and they’re often broken up into groups and tiers of service (in this case, Blue and Orange). Check the service’s website to see what channels are available to you.
In summer 2022, Sling has also announced "Freeview Weekends" where a different premium channel will be available to subscribers for free each weekend from late June through August. The first channel on offer will be Showtime on Friday June 24. Other channels expected to feature include Epix, AMC+, Sundance Now, and Hallmark Movies Now.

FAQ: Stream TV online with a VPN
Does ExpressVPN come with a Sling account?
No. You’ll need to purchase a subscription separately, if you haven't already.
What devices can I watch Sling TV on?
Sling TV is available on a wide range of devices, including:
Smartphones and tablets, including iOS and Android
Computers, including Mac and Windows
Smart TVs and TV box systems, including Apple TV, Android TV, and Fire TV Stick
Game consoles, including PlayStation and Xbox
ExpressVPN has easy-to-use apps for many of these devices and covers five devices simultaneously. But even if your device cannot install ExpressVPN directly, you can still enjoy full VPN benefits by connecting it to a router running ExpressVPN.

Can I watch on more than one device at a time?
With an Orange subscription, you can only watch on one device. But with Blue, you can watch on three separate screens at once. You can also subscribe to both 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 as you’d like.
Do I still have to deal with commercials?
Yes. Because it’s a live streaming service, the commercial breaks remain the same. A VPN can’t help you there.
Why streamers love ExpressVPN
Perfect. Unlike other VPNs that took forever to stream anything, with ExpressVPN I never notice a difference at all. It takes a lot to make me happy but this did it for me.
Have been using this service for two years now... it's infallible. Works with every app and streaming service. Uptime is good, no stuttering or delay on streams.
This is the first VPN service that doesn't slow down or buffer my streaming services while I'm at home. I appreciate that and thank you all for doing it right!
How to stream on your TV with ExpressVPN
Using ExpressVPN means secure streaming in blazing-fast HD! Here are four ways to stream with a VPN:
Connect via HDMI cable. Simply run an HDMI cable from another device with ExpressVPN installed to your TV. Don’t have an HDMI cable handy? Try mirroring or casting instead.
Use MediaStreamer. Though MediaStreamer doesn’t offer the privacy protection of a VPN, it works with devices like Apple TV and gaming consoles that normally can’t install a VPN.
Use a VPN-enabled router. With ExpressVPN installed on your router every device in your home—including your smart TV or gaming console—can enjoy all the benefits of a VPN. This even covers devices that can’t install a VPN directly.
Besides smart TVs, ExpressVPN also works with a wide range of devices—and you can connect up to 5 at the same time with a single subscription!
