Sling TV = NO

Unless you speak Spanish and have the ESPN Deportes channel as part of the “Best of Spanish” extra package on Sling Orange then you are NOT going to be able to watch the Super Bowl on Sling TV. The reason is because Sling TV does NOT offer CBS and that’s the network that is showing the Super Bowl.

This is a real shame because Sling TV is the #1 provider of online streaming tv services. But with CBS there are not a lot of options for Sling TV Users within the Sling TV universe.
