The deals are available February 7-11 to coincide with “National Cut the Cord Day,” which the company insists is an official holiday. Sling TV partnered with National Calendar Day to establish the first-ever observance of the day. The company has even set up a Cord Cutters Hotline, which can be accessed toll-free at 855-553-2862, to add to the festivities.

“For the past five years, we’ve been dedicated to making live TV streaming simple, easy and affordable – helping Americans save $1.2 billion through cord-cutting,” said Warren Schlichting, Sling TV group president, in a statement. “National Cut the Cord Day is designed to take away any excuse to cling to cable. We want to help future Slingers find out how easy it is to cut the cord and get started on Sling TV.”
