Caution is advised !
Sling TV is notorious for charging customers a monthly fee after their "free trial" expires despite those customers attempting to cancel their subscriptions.
If a credit card is required to sign-up for this free tier/trial, as is often the case for free trials -- stay away.
I would agree with that statement.

I can't figure out how to get the free channels on my Roku. SlingTV wants to sign me up for a free trial. Nowhere to choose free channels.
Hmmm. Under MYTV, scroll down a bit and look for "free" in the row titles.
Every thing I selected was sourced from Filmrise. They have their own app, so I don't see any need for this one. As usual in these free content apps, everything there is what I've already seen, never wanted to see or they'd have to pay me to see. Good for the under-30's crowd needing to catch up on a few decades of TV/film...
Sling TV isn't Filmrise, is it?
Because I asked about accessing Sling TV Free Channels on my Roku.
I wasn't all that clear in my reply. Sorry.
When I tried it, I could play free films and TV in the SlingTV app on my Roku without intervention by choosing as I described in #7. The FilmRise logo displays briefly before the movie or show begins.
FilmRise has two Roku apps, FilmRise and FilmRiseTV. FilmRise is its own concern.
I've seen that FilmRise logo display for movies and shows in Tubi and Pluto, if I remember correctly, and others I can't remember. IMDbTV, I think,
Otherwise, the Roku Channel, Pluto and Crackle are the only ones I have installed for the free channels class of apps. fuboTV, Prime and HBO streams 92.4¼% of the stuff I view.
So is the free Sling TV content accessed through the Roku channel on Rokus? If so that's stupid & unclear.
Sling TV content is accessed on streaming devices by using the SlingTV app, currently on its Roku version.
On my Roku Ultra, I watched some of the free content by opening the app and clicking on the free stuff, again, as I described in #7. I can't say if ALL the SlingTV free stuff is FilmRise property.
The fuboTV apps for my Roku and Galaxy Tab and in www.fubo.tv on my PCs' browsers stream many FilmRise films and shows.
How various apps like SlingTV, Pluto,Tubi, Stirr and a boatload of other apps stream FilmRise property is pure magic! I'll leave it at that with confidence you'll figure it out eventually.
I open the Sling Channel on my Roku Ultra & I'm presented with a screen that offers Browse as a Guest. Selected Guest option & there's no Free. There's Free Trial but no Free.
I have the separate Filmrise Channel.
Are you talking about the Filmrise Channel not the Sling Channel?
This is as clear mud to me.
