Ordering & Watching Pay-Per-View Events
Ordering a PPV Event
Order on Sling.com
To order through sling.com, sign in to your account, then select the event banner on the My Account page. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete your purchase.
Note: If you don't see an event banner in your account, you'll need to add a valid credit or debit card to purchase
Order in the SLING app
Note: In-app purchasing of Pay-Per-View events is not available on all devices
To order in the SLING app, head to the Rentals tab, then select the event you'd like to purchase. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete your purchase.
If your device does not support in-app purchases, you won't see the Rentals tab. In these cases, PPV events can be ordered either through your My Account page, or through a device that does offer in-app purchases, such as the SLING browser player. Once purchased, you'll be able to watch the event on your preferred device (you may need to relaunch the SLING app for your event to appear).
Watching Pay-Per-View Events
Note: When watching your Pay-Per-View event, make sure you're viewing with a high-speed internet connection. Pay-Per-View purchases are non-refundable, so we want to make sure you have the best viewing experience!
Once you've purchased a Pay-Per-View event, it will show up as the first channel of your guide (the far left if you're using the Channel View, or the very top if you're using the Grid View) as Sling PPV. Select it from the guide and view just like you would any other program on Sling.
If you don't see the Pay-Per-View event in your guide, try using Search to locate your event. If you're still unable to locate your event, try closing and re-launching Sling on your device.
Still not seeing your event? Sign out of your Sling app by selecting Settings > Account > Sign Out. Once you've signed out, try signing back in.
