If you're missing a local channel or Regional Sports Network that is normally available to you through your subscription to Sling TV, there may be an issue with your IP address. An IP address is a unique number that identifies each device using the internet. Depending on your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your IP address could show you as in a different area from where you're currently located, which could cause local or regional programming to be absent from your Sling TV channel lineup.


If you're at home, you can check your IP address location by clicking the button below. Make sure you're using a non-mobile device that's connected to your home network.

Try enabling airplane mode on your device, then turning it off to reset your location. If that doesn't work, try connecting to a WiFi network (if available) to see if the channel appears.
