Roku introduced National Streaming Day in 2014 with the aim of celebrating streaming media of the digital age. Most streaming services take advantage of this unofficial “holiday” to shower consumers with promos and discounts. And who doesn’t love saving money? Join Sling TV in celebrating National Streaming Day and learn how you can save as a new subscriber.

With Sling, you can catch the best channels at home or on the go from any device, and there are no long-term contracts, so you can pause, switch, or cancel your plan at any time.
