Now it goes without saying that ditching conventional cable for the newer wire free cable alternative aka streaming services like Sling or Amazon, for instance, translates to significant cost savings. However, despite helping you save money you’d also want these services to stream your favorite channels like HBO. The good news is that Sling does include HBO by just adding it to your existing subscription. It also costs the same $15 as an HBO Now subscription.
If you’re a new subscriber to Sling TV, the company offers 7-days free streaming. We guess this is more than enough for anyone to get used to streaming HBO and a load of other channels.
Add HBO to an Existing Sling TV Account
Adding HBO to your existing Sling TV subscription is very easy. Though to start with you need to have a Sling Blue or Orange account for it to work. You then log-into your Sling TV account and add it to the package.
- Visit the account page
- After you log-in, you’ll see an ‘Add HBO’ Button if you are a Sling Orange or Blue subscriber.
- Click the button to confirm the addition of HBO.
