Latest Sling TV News

 Sling TV! With both the Primetime Emmy Awards, as well as week four of college football approaching, I wanted to get all of the latest updates to you. For information on how to watch the Primetime Emmy Awards, see directly below. Further down will be more information on the best way to watch college football.

How to watch the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sling TV

With one of the biggest nights in entertainment around the corner, I wanted to let you know that Sling TV is the most affordable way to watch the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday, September 17th at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC. With Sling TV, viewers won’t miss a second of the drama for just $25 a month.


TV fans can stream the awards show co-hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che by subscribing to Sling’s Blue service. Viewers can also catch the red-carpet coverage on NBC starting at 6:00 p.m. ET for a preview of the night's best fashion and interviews with the stars. Viewers can watch even more red carpet coverage on E! with the Lifestyle Extra for $5 a month on Sling Blue starting at 4:30 p.m. ET.


And for those who don't live in a market with NBC, it's just as easy to catch all the coverage on an OTA antenna 


Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about streaming the Emmy's or Sling TV in general! Happy to help.
