Sling is establishing itself as a viable cheap alternative to cable, with many local as well national channels available at as little as $35. Sling allows to manage packages, so for example if you don't watch a lot of sports you can remove that package and save a good amount of money. Getting Sling when you're trying to cut the cord is the closest thing to an "à la carte" service, you only pay for what you use.
