Sling TV Makes Watching the Olympics Even Easier & Cheaper




Olympic_rings_without_rims.svgSling TV announced today that they will be making it even easier for Cord Cutters to watch the 2016 Olympics. Not only will Sling TV offer every channel covering the Olympics, but they are moving MSNBC and CNBC from their world news package to their base package specifically for the Olympics.

  • Customers who subscribe to Sling Blue’s core service ($25 per month) can watch live coverage of the Rio Olympics on Bravo, NBC (where available), NBC Sports Network and USA.
  • Sling Blue customers who subscribe to the Sports Extra add-on pack can also access 130 hours of live Olympic golf coverage via Golf Channel.
  • Sling Blue’s Best of Spanish TV customers can watch extensive Spanish coverage of the Rio Olympics on NBC Universo.

For the first time ever Cord Cutters will have full access to the Summer Olympics.

The 2016 Olympic coverage will be on:

  • NBC
  • Golf Channel
  • Bravo
  • CNBC
  • USA Network

Their Blue base package will now include NBCSN, Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC and USA Network. Golf, for the first time in over 100 years, will be an Olympic sport and the Golf Channel will have full coverage. If you want the Golf Channel you can get the sports add-on for just a extra $5 per month.  The best part is Sling TV has no contract, you can sign up for just one month and cancel your subscription after the Olympics are over.

MSNBC and CNBC will move to the Sling Blue package starting August 1st 2016 and will return to the World News add-on after the Olympics.

You can get NBC with a antenna; if you need help finding your NBC station with an antenna, check out With the help of an antenna and Sling TV you can get every channel covering the Olympics without the need for the long term contract required by cable.
