Service is sort of OK, though their press releases about making cloud DVR service to everyone using this app instead of a select handful of beta testers was pure BS. Meanwhile, it would take a thousand words to elucidate all the ways the app sucks, so here's just one example. The search function is essentially useless. For instance, NASCAR is a big deal in the U.S. and a major presence on all the Fox Sports and most other sports channels in Sling TV. Search "NASCAR" and you get a big fat zero returns.
Great service I had since day 1 and has only gotten better. Much better with little lag and double the original channels. My main complaint before was walking dead and popular shows had major streaming issues but those now seem fixed. Awesome service for 20 bucks. Often have free channels like epix and hbo.
1 star for spamming me with feedback request when I pay monthly for their service. First time I sent feedback. Second time sent feedback with also the request that they are asking too often. The only option you get is 1: love it and rate (already gave it 4 stars) 2: meh, leave feedback 3: ask me later. I have been using option 3 lately and now I'm being asked much more regularly. So much so that I am upset enough to right this review. Good service but they spam their paid customers.
Dear Sling TV & Co., Thank you for the effort. It's truly amazing not to have to deal with big TV Co. That being said, as a proud Nvidia Shield TV owner, the fact that your application doesn't allow me to sync your app with the Live Chanel's app on my Shield is a big no for me. Your UI is to "heavy" for me, for lack of a better word, in that regard. As soon as you update your app in this regard I'll hop right back and give you a 5 star review. Thank you for the generous trial, but I'll stick with OTA TV for the time being. Best wishes!
I was paying for the X1 platform and it was great, but I was being overcharged by so much. So, I did the 14 day trial of Sling, and liked it so we kept it and still ended up paying much less for only the channels we like to watch... we don't receive local channels that are in our town, but we still prefer it. It's also really easy to navigate.
It's a good concept but the video quality is not full HD, it buffers a lot even with the router in the same room as my TV and phone. I have 3rd party video streaming apps that have better video quality than sling. Probably just going to use the free trial and then cancel.
