Sling TV is an over-the-top Internet television service from Dish Network. It lets you watch your favorite cable channels — like ESPN, Comedy Central, AMC, or CNN — live. You can also purchase add-ons that focus on extra comedy, sports, or news channels.

Sling TV is also offering free streaming during the coronavirus outbreak! Check below for more details.

ProtonVPN users can securely and privately watch any of their favorite Sling TV content no matter where they are!

But you are not limited to Sling TV with ProtonVPN. You can also stream Disney+, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video. See all the streaming services you can access with our streaming guide for new users.
