Sling TV logoSling TV is currently offering a handful of deals that bundle an assortment of devices if you sign up to prepay for a few months. With different bundles at different price points, we’ve put together a quick guide to help readers figure out if there’s a good fit out there for you.

Free Amazon Fire TV Stick: Best for beginning streamers or those needing a second streaming device

Sling’s cheapest device deal throws in a free Amazon Fire TV Stick when you sign up and prepay for two months of Sling TV. Keep in mind this is not the 4K version of Amazon’s Fire TV Stick, so this deal could be best for beginner streamers with a 1080p TV. Alternatively, if you have a 4K TV with decent streaming capabilities, you could use this free add-on for a secondary screen in your house.

Free AirTV Mini: Best for beginning streamers with 4K TVs

This deal (usually $79.99) also requires two months of prepayment. In this case, you’ll get a 4K-capable AirTV Mini, a small, Android TV-powered HDMI dongle that attaches directly to your TV. It also comes with a remote and built-in Chromecast support. If your 4K set has no built-in app support, or you’re looking for a simple upgrade, this could be a good option.

Basic Locals Bundle (Free HD antenna): Best for those who already have streaming devices and want local channels

This option (normally $44.95) throws in a free HD antenna for access to local channels. You’ll need to sign up and prepay for two months of Sling service, and it’s worth checking to see checking to see if the free option — the deals page displays an RCA flat indoor antenna model — is powerful enough to receive local channels in your area.

Bonus Locals Bundle (AirTV 2 and an HD antenna for $49): Best for beginning streamers who want to watch local channels around the house

Unlike the deals we’ve mentioned to this point, this option requires three months of prepayment and includes an AirTV 2 alongside an HD antenna. The AirTV 2 lets you stream local channels across your WiFi network, so you can view content on other connected devices, including phones and tablets.

Better Locals Bundle (AirTV 2, AirTV Mini, and HD antenna for $99): Best beginning streamers who could use a streaming device

If the AirTV 2 bundle above sounds appealing, but you’d like to add a 4K-capable streaming device to your mix, you can check out this bundle, which adds an AirTV Mini. Like the earlier deal, this one requires three months of prepayment.

Best Locals Bundle for $149: Best for beginning streamers with more than one TV

Last, but not least, this bundle adds on a second AirTV Mini so you can stream to two TVs in your home. It also includes an AirTV 2 for local channel streaming.
