Sling TV is partnering up with NBA Legend, Allen Iverson to give customers exclusive coverage of the Allen Iverson Roundball Classic that takes place this Friday, April 26. For current customers of the Sling Blue and/or the Sling Orange package, you'll be able to watch the classic this Friday, it'll show up at the top of the guide, as a separate channel.
Former customers will be able to watch it on Roku, without needing to sign up for Sling TV again. Just reopen or redownload the app and you can watch the Iverson Roundball Classic for free.
Sling TV is promoting this classic from Allen Iverson by providing an extended free trial this week. Instead of getting the usual seven days when you start a free trial, you'll now get 10 days with your free trial. It's not a huge addition, but three more days for free is still nice to see.
The Allen Iverson Roundball Classic will consist of two teams, which have the country's most talented basketball prospects. They will compete in a game, that is sure to be exciting. This is essentially like the NBA All-Star game, but with players you may have never heard of (unless you watch high school, college and international basketball). Starting April 25, you'll be able to watch the Classic on-demand, which includes highlights from the Dunk Contest, 3-Point Shootout, one-on-one match ups and much more. It's kinda like the entire All-Star weekend, in a sense.
Sling TV is the only TV provider that will be airing the Iverson Roundball Classic. So if you do want to watch it, this is the only way to do it. But Sling is giving it to you for free, essentially. New customers can sign up for a new trial to watch it. And current customers don't pay anything extra for watching the Classic.
For those that might be unaware, Sling TV is a streaming TV service, that was actually one of the first to launch. It is an a la carte service, so you have two base plans: Sling Blue and Sling Orange. These two have a different set of channels included, and you can get these for $25 each or get both for $40. There aren't a lot of channels included there, but there are add-on packages available for more sports, news, entertainment and much more. There's also no local channels available on Sling TV. So it is a pretty barebone streaming TV service.
You can watch Sling TV on the majority of streaming devices out there. That includes Android, Android TV, Chromecast, Apple TV, iOS, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire Tablets, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and many more. So no matter what device you have, it'll be available on it. And you can watch Sling TV from virtually anywhere that has an Internet connection. It's a great way to cut the cord and replace cable, and likely pay a whole lot less.
