Roku is giving away $50 in Sling TV credits to any new Sling customer who buys a Roku device between now and April 7, 2018.
There are several ways you could use the $50 to purchase programming from Sling, the live streaming service owned by Dish.
For instance, Sling’s Orange plan starts at $20-a-month and includes ESPN and roughly 30 cable networks. You could purchase two months of the Orange package and have $10 left over for two $5 add-on plans. (Sling has several $5 a month packages with additional channels, such as those for sports fans and kids.)
Sling’s Blue package costs $25-a-month, and includes more than 40 channels including live network feeds in select markets as well as several Fox channels. You could use the $50 to purchase two months of ‘Orange.’
The Roku/Sling offer can not be combined with any other free trial. Sling offers a 7-day free trial for new customers.
Roku also says the $50 can not be applied to movie rental or pay-per-view.
