If you want to make the most of the generous free Sling TV deal that lets you watch for free from 5pm ET until midnight, now's the time - it ends as of Friday May 15. That means it's worth signing up now to make the most of free TV without a cable package.

Called 'Happy Hour Across America', this free Sling TV deal gives access to 47 major channels (including NFL Network, MSNBC, Cartoon Network, and the recent NFL Draft (opens in new tab)) from late afternoon ET until 12am... and all without an expensive cable TV bill. You don't even have to enter any credit card details to sign up; all you need is your email address and ZIP code. We'll be sad to see the offer end on Friday May 15 as a result.

Still, at least there are a few days left to take advantage of this offer. You can see all the channels available to you below. And if you fancy keeping Sling TV going, you can get $10 off your first month by signing up here (opens in new tab).

Want to take advantage of this free Sling TV deal outside of the US? You can if you use a VPN. Virtual Private Networks allow you to fool your internet into thinking you're somewhere you're not, so choosing a US server will allow you to get in on this offer as well.

Don't have a VPN yet? Check out our guide to the best VPN providers (opens in new tab). If you want to cut to the chase though, we'd go with Express VPN (opens in new tab) which is currently running a 49% off promo.
