Want Sling Blue but only Sling Orange seems to be choice

Jump to solution

Just started Roku and would like to add Sling Blue, but only Sling Orange shows up as an option on the television.  If I subscribe to Blue on by laptop will I be able to access it on my Roku/TV, or is there another avenue to get Blue on the TV?

If you subscribe to a premium service directly with that service on its website, you will be able to then view that service on any platform (e.g. computer browser, app on phone or tablet, dedicated app on Roku or other streamer, etc.) supported by that service.  This give you maximum flexibility for viewing that service.

Are you logging in with the same email address? 

On the Roku, go to the Setting icon at the top of the Sling interface, then look at the email address listed under the Account setting.

On a computer, log on to https://www.sling.com/account using the same email address and check the subscription. Your Sling app on Roku should show the same subscription (Orange, Blue, or Orange+Blue, plus any add-ons) as displayed on the computer, if you're logging in with the same email address.
