What does reactivating your sling account mean?
Once you reactivate your Sling TV account, you will be asked to re-enter your card information in some cases. So, all that billing you stopped when you paused your account will continue as normal. You can now start enjoying all the titles included in your chosen Sling TV membership. You will still have renewal periods when you will be charged for the next period, and so on. You can still pause or cancel your membership at any time.
