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.

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

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