Sling offers up to 47 live TV channels so you can finally ditch cable.

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

Looking to cut the cord? Sling is one of the best budget options for those looking to stream live TV without cable. Sling has three packages to choose from: Sling Orange, Sling Blue and both combined. The two packages share some channels, like CNN, History and TNT, but differ on others. Essentially, Sling Blue offers NBC and Fox in select markets, while Sling Orange comes with ESPN and Disney. Each individual package costs $40 a month, though you can combine them for $55.

If you’re set to take the cord-cutting plunge, now’s a great time to do so. Sling is offering half off the first month of service or new subscribers when you sign up with this Black Friday deal. That means you’ll only pay $20 for Sling Orange or Sling Blue and $27.50 for both.

After the promotion expires at the end of your first month, you’ll be charged the regular price. While Sling doesn’t offer all of the local channels you need to watch sports, it does come with Fox in select markets. Be sure to check if you live in one of the 18 markets that include Fox. If you do, this means that Sling Blue is one of the cheapest ways for you to watch your local Fox NFL games without cable, while you’ll still be able to catch Monday Night Football on ESPN with Sling Orange.

Sling is available on a multitude of platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google TV, game consoles and more, so you can watch pretty much anywhere.
