One of the additional benefits of a Sling TV subscription is the access to a variety of TV Everywhere apps and websites. Using these third-party apps and sites provides subscribers with the ability to watch more content, when they want, where they want. While there are many TV Everywhere apps that Sling TV subscribers can access, not all networks and channels are currently supported.

TV Everywhere is not exclusive to Sling TV. Instead, the option to access these apps is generally available through any of the main live TV streaming services. Although, just like how channel lineups vary depending on the service, which apps a subscriber can access also varies.

Not all channels are available with TV Everywhere

Just because a channel is included with a live TV subscription, Sling TV or otherwise, doesn’t actually mean that the third-party network app and website access is also available.

In fact, there are some channels and networks that Sling TV subscribers cannot access at all outside of the Sling TV app and website. Therefore, knowing exactly which apps and sites are available to a Sling TV subscriber is an important way to maximize the overall user experience.

Below is the current and complete list of every third-party network app and website that Sling TV subscribers can access. This is the overall list so some of the apps might not be available to certain Sling TV subscribers unless they have the channel included in their Sling TV Blue or Orange subscription.

For example, the NBA TV app is only available to Sling TV subscribers who have added the Sports Extra add-on to their package.

How to use TV Everywhere apps with Sling TV

Accessing and using TV Everywhere apps with a Sling TV subscription is a fairly simple process. While the exact instructions may vary, depending on the app, the process will be overall similar to the instructions below.

There are two main ways to make use of TV Everywhere credentials. The first is to log in and then have immediate access to all of the content that’s available.

Log in with Sling TV to TV Everywhere app or website:

  1. Open the third-party app on phone or visit the website
  2. Tap on the settings icon or “sign in” link in the top-right corner
  3. Tap on “Manage TV Provider”
  4. Scroll down the list or use the search box to find Sling TV
  5. Tap or click on Sling TV
  6. Sign in with Sling TV credentials.

The second way is more specific to certain movies or shows, although the overall outcome is the same.

  1. Open the third-party app on phone or visit the website
  2. Navigate to a movie or show episode to watch
  3. Click or tap on the video
  4. Choose Sling TV When prompted to Sign in
  5. Sign in with Sling TV credentials.

Sling TV TV Everywhere restrictions

Although a great way to increase content, there are some additional restrictions that subscribers might need to be aware of. The first is that not every channel or network can be accessed using a Sling TV subscription. Even the networks and channels listed above are subject to change, so there may come a time when an app that’s currently supported loses that support.

Another restriction is the number of simultaneous streams. While Sling TV provides a specific number of same-time streams to subscribers, those streams are specific to the Sling TV app and website. Anyone using a TV Everywhere app will not be able to take advantage of the same number of streams. Instead, they will be limited to the simultaneous streams policy set out by the third-party network app or website.

Sling TV TV Everywhere app summary

Overall, TV Everywhere apps can be a great way to increase the amount of movies and show episodes a Sling TV subscriber has access to. Using these TV Everywhere apps and websites is simple to do and requires no more than the subscriber’s login credentials. While Sling TV does support TV Everywhere, not all networks and channels can be accessed in this way. Furthermore, there could be other restrictions that result in additional limitations.
