Want to tune in to the most highly anticipated presidential debate in a generation, where the first female major-party nominee faces off against a real estate developer and reality TV star?

Or maybe you'd rather watch football.

Now you can get both, for free. Sling TV, the Internet-delivered live TV service, is making its basic Sling Orange package available free to new subscribers until 2 a.m. ET tonight (well, technically, tomorrow morning). No credit card is required.

The debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton begins at 9 p.m. ET on numerous outlets, including many websites and TV channels like CNN, which is available on Sling Orange. So is ESPN, which carries tonight's Monday Night Football contest between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, starting at 8:30 p.m. ET.

To watch via Sling TV you'll need a solid Internet connection and a compatible app, available on numerous devices including Apple and Android phones and tablets, PC and Mac computers, as well as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Xbox One TV-connected devices. Here's where you sign up.
