If you’re trying to pinch pennies during the lockdown, Sling TV has an irresistible offer.

The live TV streaming service is offering its Sling Blue package for free to everyone from 5 p.m. to midnight every night — no strings attached.

Sling Blue has more than 50 live channels, a free cloud DVR and more than 50,000 on-demand titles. It also enables your household to watch programming on up to three different screens at once.

Networks that are available through Sling Blue include:

  • A&E
  • AMC
  • Bravo
  • CNN
  • E!
  • Fox News
  • FX
  • HGTV
  • HLN
  • MSNBC
  • TLC

The service usually costs $30 a month. But if you are willing to restrict your viewing times to evenings, you can get it for free for a limited time. (Sling doesn’t specify for how long the freebie will be available.)

To sign up for free TV, go to the Sling TV homepage, click on the “Happy Hour Across America” stripe and then scroll down. There you can enter an email, password and ZIP code, and you’ll be ready to watch.

Sling TV says the gratis streaming — dubbed “Happy Hour Across America” — is part of its “Stay in & Sling” promotion tied to the coronavirus pandemic. It describes the new freebie as “live TV without the cover charge.”

While “Happy Hour Across America” is an amazing deal, you may find it tough to limit your TV time to just a few hours every night. Or, perhaps the Sling Blue lineup doesn’t include your favorite networks.

If that’s true for you, don’t fret. You have plenty of other options. Recently, we zeroed in on a bunch of streaming services that are offering entertainment at a bargain price. For details, check out “10 Streaming TV Services Offering Free 30-Day Trials Right Now.”

Signing up for free or low-cost streaming TV is just one way to keep costs low during this rough time. For more tips, check out:
