How to Get a Free Streaming Player from Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, & Hulu


Want a free streaming player? Services such as Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, & Hulu all have free device offers right now. This may be the perfect way to get started as a cord cutter.

Read the following for how you can get these free devices. (Note: All deals are for new customers only.)

Free Roku Stick

The quad core Roku Stick is one of the most powerful streaming players available. The best part is you can get it for free from Sling TV. All you have to do is prepay for two months of Sling TV. This is a great deal especially if you already planned on getting Sling TV.

Free Roku Express

If you want a free Roku Express, Hulu has a great deal. For a limited time Hulu is offering four months of Hulu and a Roku Express for just $29.99. Typically Hulu would cost about $32 for four months, so not only do you get a free Roku Express but you also get a discount on your Hulu plan.

Free Apple TV

DIRECTV NOW just brought back its free Apple TV deal, but there are a few catches. Just like last time you need to prepay for three months of DIRECTV NOW, but this time you can only get the deal if you sign up for DIRECTV NOW in an AT&T store.

Supplies are limited and this is a limited-time deal, so do not wait.
Free Roku Premiere

Right now if you prepay for 2 months of DIRECTV NOW you can get a free Roku Premiere. Unlike the Apple TV deal, you can get this deal online through the DIRECTV NOW website HERE.

Free Chromecast

Right now YouTube TV is offering a free Chromecast for all new YouTube TV subscribers.

The following is how you can get this deal:

  1. Once you’ve paid for your first month of YouTube TV, you’ll get a notification in the YouTube TV app and via email with a link to redeem your free Chromecast. Note: You may receive an email a few days after your first payment. Don’t worry—you won’t lose your eligibility during this time.
  2. Follow the link in your email, making sure you’re signed in to the account associated with your YouTube TV membership.
  3. Add a Chromecast to your cart.
  4. Check out to finalize your free purchase.

Inexpensive Devices (The following deals are for a discounted device.)

Sling TV is offering two great discounts on streaming players. If you want a Roku Premiere+ or an AirTV player with the over-the-air TV adapter you can get one of them for just $50 each if you prepay for three months of Sling TV. Not sure what an AirTV is? Check out our full review HERE.

These deals are also for new customers only.

    Thanks for the heads up on Hulu + roku stick. I had subscribed (for a month to Hulu Plus) years ago, but I still got the deal, and I used the same account.

    However, I had to go back and find this page where you add the delivery address for the roku. It skipped past it after I signed up.
