Sling TV is one of the most popular services for streaming live TV and finally cutting the cable cord. It provides an array of channels that can rival nearly any traditional television provider. That said, managing your Sling TV subscription isn't always simple. If you want to cancel Sling or change your subscription package, you'll need to find your way around their website and account management pages.

The first step in either case is getting to your account dashboard.

How to Access Sling TV Account Settings

  1. Open your web browser and head over to Sling. When you arrive, select Sign In in the upper right of the page to log in to your account.

    If you're using a VPN set anywhere outside the US, you'll probably run into an issue signing in. Make sure to use a US based IP address when signing in to Sling.

    Log in to your Sling account.
  3. Sling will take a second to load up, but after it does, you'll land on their streaming interface. Locate and select the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen to open up your account settings.

  3. Sling will then give you the option to pause your subscription instead of canceling. If you're going on vacation or simply won't be able to use Sling, this is a good alternative to canceling outright. Of course, if you're not happy with your service or have other reasons to cancel, select Continue To Cancel to continue with your cancellation.
