Sling TV App Authentication for Supported Apps

One of the benefits of having a cable subscription is being able to use your provider to sign-in to content apps, like ESPN, FX, Bravo, and NFL Network and watch on-demand shows. You can also use your Sling TV credentials as a provider for app authentication on supported apps and streaming platforms.

It gets a bit complex in figuring out what channels and what streaming devices are supported. On Roku, some apps like ESPN and NBC Sports have also made it easier for you to authenticate. When you’realready logged into Sling, just go to the app settings and hit Login. It will automatically grab and use your Sling TV credentials without you going through the authentication process.
