Hello, everyone! How is your week going? I’ve been trying to get more gift-buying done. I have a hard time with a few family members and friends, so I have been in and out of stores and online trying to find the perfect gifts. How about you? Do you have people that are hard to buy for? My dad was one of those people, but I know the perfect gift I would give him this year if he were still alive. A gift of the news (but so much more) with Sling TV. Have you all heard of it? My dad was a news junkie, and this would be the perfect gift!

I am very challenged when it comes to our televisions at home. I am embarrassed to admit this, but I truly cannot figure out the remotes. Inevitably, I will try to find something on TV, but I mess up the remote so badly that I have to wait until my husband gets home to fix it. I always say I wish I could go and manually change the channel like I did growing up. It was so complicated for me until I discovered Sling TV!

What is Sling TV, you might be asking? Sling TV is the first app-based TV service that lets you stream live television and on-demand programs over the internet. You can watch live shows wherever you may be. Sling TV enables you to choose the right television option, including channel add-ons, premium add-ons, DVR Plus, and more. Watching live TV is so much easier and affordable with Sling TV. With Sling, you don’t have to pay for local channels. Your available local news and sports (like NFL Football and more) are Free when you pair your Sling subscription with an HD antenna.

With Sling, you can watch breaking news on FOX, CNN, Bloomberg, and MSNBC  with the Sling Blue package. You will also get the news extra add-on to get up-to-date breaking news from trusted national networks, financial and economic news, and diverse news channels.

I thought it would be hard to sign up for Sling (I did it all by myself!), but it was super easy. I already had internet, so all I had to do was choose the content lineup I wanted. I have recently worked in coffee shops and at a private club, I belong to. I can get on Sling TV and watch the news from those places. This service is great if you don’t have a TV or work in a place that doesn’t have one. I know that I will use this when I travel too. As I said, Sling TV is super simple. Find the base package that fits your needs, then customize your channel lineup with the extras and premium add-ons. There are no contracts, and you can change or cancel your package anytime.


It’s easier for me to get the news from my computer than to go and figure out that dang TV remote. I can watch my favorite news station and maybe get in a cute Hallmark Christmas movie. If you are looking for a great gift idea, Sling TV is great for parents or kids who don’t have TVs but want to know what’s happening in the world. I would say this is such an excellent service for college kids too! Most of us live on our computers, so why not get your news and other stations there as well? Sling is running a promotion for half off your first month. Choose between Sling Blue ($40) or Sling Blue and Orange ($55). This is such a great deal!

I hope I filled you in on something that you didn’t know about. I hope you have a great day!

Stay well and Be safe! xx
