The Iowa Republican Caucus is going down on January 15, and the New Hampshire Primary is close on its heels January 28. Every 24-hour news channel will be covering election returns both nights.

Watch Election Returns With Sling Blue
There are a couple of reasons why Sling Blue is recommended for viewers looking to stay on top of current events — such as elections. The first and biggest is that that’s where the news channels are.

Local Networks on Sling Blue
But you like your news more local-flavored? Sling Blue‘s got you covered there, too: it’s got ABC, NBC, and Fox included in select markets. If you happen to live in a market where they’re available, Sling will cost a few extra dollars a month.
If you don’t live where they’re available, Sling can still help you out. They will send you a free antenna just for prepaying a few months. There are more sweet deals on Sling-optimized (but not exclusive!) hardware that can integrate your antenna feed in with your Sling channels.

Caucus and Primary Results With the Sling TV News Extra
But wait, folks, that’s not all! Sling TV‘s main strength is its customizability. The base packages are cheaper, so you have room on your dial and in your budget to add on more channels — but only the ones you want.
In this case, we’re going to look specifically at the News Extra. Extras are small add-on bundles of 6-10 loosely related channels. There are Extras for Sports, Kids, and movies, and most of them are only $6/mo. What does the News Extra get you?
That’s 10 additional news and information channels, with reporting and perspectives from around the world. It’s true that BBC World News may or may not carry the Iowa Caucus — but you can bet Newsmax and NewsNation will.
You can find more on all of Sling TV’s Extras and other add-ons on our guide to Sling TV Packages.
