You Can't Get Sling TV On PS4; Here's What You Can Get

Streaming apps including Netflix and Hulu are available

What to Know

  • Use an alternative like Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, HBO GO, Vudu, Crunchyroll, or Disney Plus.
  • Sling is supported on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Apple TV, Chromecast, and most smart TVs.

Unfortunately, the PS4 does not support Sling TV. The PS4 does, however, have tons of other streaming services you can download and watch many of the same movies or TV shows.

If you already have Sling TV and rather use a device you can watch it on, plenty of other devices support the service.

What Can You Watch on Your PS4?

Since Sony's PlayStation Vue service has shut down, Sony has made these other live TV streaming services available for the PS4. But if you're already paying for Sling TV, you likely want to find a device with the ability to stream it. If you are willing to cancel Sling TV, then read on.

The most popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are readily available on the PS4. You can also get HBO GO, Vudu, Crunchyroll, and Disney Plus.

If you want more of a live TV service like Sling TV provides, there are options like Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV, which you can use on your PS4. These work the same as Sling TV, giving you access to live cable channels. And with these services, you can stream shows and movies from TV channels on-demand as well.

Which Devices Support Sling TV?

If you're set on Sling TV, the good news is there are an array of devices you can use. For example, Apple TV works nicely with Sling TV, and Chromecast also works with Sling TV. Sling TV lists all the devices that work with Sling TV on its site. This also includes most browsers and mobile devices.

If you're looking for a gaming console that supports Sling, the Xbox One or Xbox Series X is your best bet.

The Future of Sling TV on PlayStation Devices

Sling TV is only available on the Xbox One and the Xbox Series X consoles. With the release of the PS5, Sony has announced what streaming services will be available for download, but, unfortunately, there's been no mention of Sling TV. So, as of the time of publication, it's unlikely you'll be able to use it on the next generation of PlayStation consoles.

There are also no plans for Sling TV to come to the PS4. If they haven't announced it for the PS5, it probably won't be seen on the previous console, at least anytime soon.
