Sling TV is the most popular live streaming service out there. And while it has an almost ridiculous smorgasbord of channels available, you're still going to have to make some choices when it comes to pricing. Because like almost everyone else, Sling has a couple of plans from which you'll pick.

Sling has three options for plans and pricing:

  • Orange Plan ($25 a month): This is the basic plan. (Its price increased on June 28, 2018.) If you get nothing else, you'll have this. It covers the basic of what you'd find on cable TV, with more than 20 channels at the ready.
  • Blue Plan ($25 a month): For $25 a month you'll get even more news and movies and sports. But this doesn't comprise every channel that's available in the Orange Plan.
  • Orange & Blue ($40 a month): The best of both worlds. You get the full smash — Orange and Blue plans.
