How to get a free month of Sling TV
To take advantage of this offer*, you must order the fight online through Sling.com, not while in the Sling app. Additionally, the offer is only available to new Sling subscribers, or those who cancelled their subscription more than 180 days ago; current Sling subscribers, those who have been issued more than one refund, or anyone who has had a free trial in the last year are not eligible. Amazon Pay cannot be used to order the fight, and, unlike most of our other pay-per-view events, you must be an active subscriber to watch the fight on Sling.
What are the different Sling packages?
To give Sling subscribers the best value with the most flexibility, our service includes a variety of packages and add-ons. Sling Orange service includes 32 channels, including Disney-owned networks like ESPN, ESPN2, Freeform, and The Disney Channel. Sling Blue includes 43 channels (as well as local NBC and FOX affiliates in select markets), like NBCUniversal networks such as Bravo, E!, MSNBC, and SYFY, as well as Fox-affiliated channels like Fox News, FS1, and FX, plus the NFL Network. Most channels on Sling are available in both packages, including AMC, A&E, Lifetime, HGTV, and many others. When your free month is up, Sling Orange or Blue each cost $35/mo, or they can be bundled together for $50/mo. All Sling Packages include 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage free, with an upgrade to 200 hours available for $5/mo. Movie channels like SHOWTIME and Starz are available as separate add-ons, and if you’re looking for even more sports, news, or lifestyle channels, Extra packages are also available to purchase.
Now that you know everything about Sling, let’s get you ready for the match. The winner of Canelo-Plant fight (Saturday, Nov. 6 at 9pm ET live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas) will have achieved something unlike any other fighter between 160-168 pounds. With Canelo Alvarez (56–1–2, 38 KOs) holding the WBA (super), WBC, WBO and The Ring middleweight belts, and Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant (21–0, 12 KOs) in possession of the IBF title, the victor will be the first undisputed super middleweight champion in the history of boxing.
It’s an honor that both fighters are taking seriously—and personally. While facing off at their first press conference, Canelo gave Plant a shove (allegedly in response to an insult), and Plant responded with a slap from his sweet hands. Expect the trash talk to continue in the lead up to the fight, but with so much at stake, neither fighter needs much additional motivation to bring their best.
As for the rest of the fight card, a super lightweight fight between Elvis Rodriguez (11-1-1) and Juan Pablo Romero (14-0-0) opens the action. That bout will be followed by a super bantamweight showdown between Rey Vargas (34-0-0) and Leonardo Baez (21-4-0). The final appetizer ahead of the main event is another super middleweight slugfest between Anthony Dirrell (32-2-2) and Marcos Hernandez (15-4-2).
With a stacked fight card, the highest possible stakes, and two of the best fighters of their era squaring up, there’s more than enough reason to order the fight, even without a free month of Sling TV.
