If you're looking to ditch your cable subscription, you're likely doing tons of research to find the live TV streaming service that brings you the best channel selection at the highest quality for the best price.

Sling offers other bonuses for new subscribers as well, including two new limited-time Black Friday promotions. Here's a full rundown of all the Sling TV offers and discounts available right now.
Updated on 11/20/2020 by Steven Cohen: Added details about Sling's current Black Friday deals.
Sling TV Black Friday deals
For a limited time, Sling is offering a pair of Black Friday deals for new members.
The first deal allows subscribers to receive two months of service for the price of one. Subscribers can choose between Sling Orange or Sling Blue, and the membership comes with 10 hours of Cloud DVR storage. That said, Extras are not included. After the two-month promotional period, you'll be charged the normal monthly fee unless you cancel.
If you don't want a free month, new members can opt for a free device instead. When you prepay for one month of Sling at the regular price, you can receive a free AirTV Mini. The AirTV Mini is a compact streaming player with support for several apps. The device can launch the Sling service automatically, the controls are designed as shortcuts to the Sling interface, and there's a large Sling button to make sure you can easily get back to your live TV stream with one touch.
Sling TV offers a free trial
New subscribers who sign up for a Sling membership without any other promotions can receive a free three-day trial. You can sign up for the free trial right now through the Sling website.
To activate the free trial you'll need to provide an email address and a credit card. Your payment method will be charged after the trial concludes if you don't cancel your subscription.
The Sling app is available on a variety of media players and connected devices. LG Smart TVs already have the Sling app installed, so you can start streaming right away once you subscribe. The Sling app is also native to Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Xbox One, and AirTV, so if you already own one of those devices, you're good to go. You can also always stream on your laptop if you want to keep things simple.
If you don't own one of these devices preloaded with the app, however, Sling currently offers several packages that'll get you free or discounted devices if you prepay for a few months of the service at the regular price.
If you subscribe and prepay for two months of regular service, Sling will throw in a free antenna ($44.95 retail value).
Meanwhile, if you prepay for three months of regular service, you can opt for one of three discounted bundles instead. For $49, you can get an AirTV 2 ($99.99 retail value) and an antenna ($44.95 retail value). For $99, you can get an AirTV 2 ($99.99 retail value), an antenna ($44.95 retail value), and an AirTV Mini ($79.99 retail value). For $149, you can receive that same bundle with a second AirTV Mini.
