Top Streaming Media Player Deals
If you are new to cord cutting you will need to get a streaming device to access streaming and on-demand content. One of the easiest and best ways to start out your new cord-cutting lifestyle is to take advantage of the different deals available on discounted or free streaming media players.
Free ROKU Express
This is hands down one of the best deals available. Sling TV is offering a free Roku Express to any subscriber that prepays only 2 months of their service. The least expensive plan is only $20/month and the normal price of a Roku Express will cost you $29.99. The best part is after the 2 months if you do not like Sling, you can use this streaming media player to connect to almost any other cord-cutting service.
Roku Ultra For Only $50
This is another great deal being offered by Sling TV. Subscribers who prepay 3 months of the service will get a Roku Ultra for only $49.99. The device normally retails for $99.99 so you would be saving $50. The Roku Ultra is one of the best high end streaming device models available. This device is perfect for the heavy streamer and supports HD, 4K, and HDR. This is a great way to get a quality device for your home theatre.
$50 AirTV Player + Adapter
Sling TV brings it when it comes to streaming device promotions and this one is no different. When you subscribe and prepay three months of Sling TV you can elect to get an AirTV Player for $50 + Adapter. The AirTV Player normally retails for $129.99.
To those unfamiliar with this device, it allows you to stream local channels through the device by connecting an OTA antenna. The AirTV Player allows you to stream sports, shows, and movies on Sling TV and on Netflix. The device features a Bluetooth voice controlled remote and has a remote finder feature. It also supposers 4K ultra HD and is “Optimized for Sling TV”.
$70 AirTV Player Bundle + Indoor Antenna
Once again with Sling TV, you can get an amazing offer. In some way, this is an even better offer than the $50 AirTV Player + Adapter deal. For an additional $20 you get the entire AirTV Player bundle plus a free indoor antenna. Antennas are generally more than $20 so you will be coming out ahead. To receive this deal you must subscribe and prepay 3 months of the service.
Free Indoor Antenna
If you already have a cord cutting device then this might be the offer for you. When you prepay 2 months of Sling TV you can elect to receive a free indoor antenna. Indoor antennas allow you to receive the local broadcast television, which is basically essential for any cord cutting set up because most major streaming services are missing 1 or more of the major 4 local stations (ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX).
