I like this for my tablet on the go. On demand stops and lags all the time. SLING does nothing about it. Live tv can lag a bit too but overall it is good. I wish customer service was better. I needed help figuring out how to use some of the things I pay extra for but couldn't get my question answered in the Help Section. They make it difficult to get help so expect to Google advice rather than get help from Sling.
Worry about fixing Fire TV! Hate it when I'm watching ESPN, it goes to commercials and I'm seeing the logo with the tune for 5 min, until I refresh and somehow I missed critical moments of the game. FIX!!!! I run on 100 MGs, so the internet isn't the problem! YOUR APP SUCKS ON EVERY DEVICE! SPECIALLY ON FIRE TV! If there was an option to select no stars that would be awesome, 1 star is already too much.
They have very poor service at least 75% of what they say you can access is not available it only buffers and never plays. I had 60 M download speed and still wouldn't work. I cancelled my service because when I contacted them they sent my repair ticket to a group only available to them by email and not available to customers at all. They told me they would be back in touch with me in 1 - 3 business days which never happened. After a week of lies and excuses why no one would fix my service I cancelled and filed complaints against them with our state attorney general's office, the BBB and the FCC.
Can't be the Roku stick because it works fine with Hulu and Netflix. I've noticed that it buffers during on-demand playback and also during certain local commercials. Support is no help. They are reading from a script. You can tell it's just party line same old same old responses read from a checklist. But I am willing to give the Streaming Stick a chance with this streaming service and see how that works out. Update: Works just fine with Fire TV and a hard wire connection. Support still sucks but you really don't need them.
I really enjoy watching my favorite shows without having to pay an arm and a leg for cable. What I don't like is the constant buffering and sometime blurry pictures.
The app glitches frequently and buffers constrantly even with a fast Wi-Fi connection. SLING has this problem on every platform.
This update includes some exciting new features, including a brand new guide that will make finding your favorites easier than ever! Happy streaming!
