Sling question

We "test-drove" Sling (Blue) under my girlfriend's name before we found out that we were committed to Dish till the end of the year. Now I'd like to take advantage of Sling's current 40% off deal. But when I open the sling app on my Roku, I get her log-in with the option to renew her subscription. How do I set up a new account under my name (and credit card info)?

After you do you should be able to sign in with your new account and credentials on your device.

Finally figured it out

Was more complicated that it needed to be. After expanding some menus, was successful.
FWIW, I am having good experience with Sling. Changed from Blue to Orange for the NBA playoffs. Again, more complicated than needed to be, but I did it.
Sling does not offer the variety of channels the more expensive services do, but I found that I did not miss the extra channels. More as I "test-drive" it.
