Sling TV Watch Party Details
I wanted to cover any questions that may come up regarding using “Watch Party.” Here are the answers to common questions that arise.
- Watch Parties are not currently available with local channels (NBC and FOX), rentals, Pay-Per-View events, Premium or standalone channels, programming recorded on Cloud DVR, and standard regional blackouts apply.
- Watch Party will only work on Google Chrome Browsers on a laptop or desktop. Watch Party will not work on mobile devices, tablets, and most chrome books.
- While you can use Watch Party as much as you like, you can only host one watch party at a time. Each Watch Party can support four devices, the host, and three invited persons’ devices.
