Pretty much flawless
So first of all I just don’t write reviews. But I just had to do it because the app deserves it. It’s really good. Second I was skeptical about the services they provide. I didn’t know much. But once I found out more and signed up for it, it’s what they advertise. It is tv a la carte. I signed up for the Spanish channels and I even get an Argentinian channel I can’t get anywhere else. When it comes the app, it is flawless. It simply never crashes. Regardless of what channel I watch it always comes up without any problems. Once you choose the channel, you have to option to watch the program that’s on form the start, to start it over, or to watch it live. Once you stop watching, you can always come back to the same spot. It saves your programs so you can come back later and pick right up where you left off. You can do that with countless shows. You can also watch from a different source. If I’m watching on my phone, and stop watching, I can watch from the iPad or the Apple TV app and watch it also without any problems. Tv quality is fantastic too. You also don’t have to sing on every single time. I haven’t to sing in or log in since I first logged in months ago. This service along with the apps in the different platforms are simply seamless. It’s really one of the best, if not the best I have on all platforms. It’s literally fantastic. 10/10.
Beware of the time stamp....
I signed up for a free trial, some of the shows played well some would cut off right in the middle of live tv and forget watching “on demand items” you aren’t even able to fast forward without it kicking you off or freezing. And you better make sure you cancel tour free trial at the precise time that it says to cancel or else it will charge you at hat very moment. I cancelled my account 10 minutes too late and while scrambling to figure out who to contact and cancel the chat room representative tells me that she couldn’t couldn’t refund my services because I was presently in streaming mood. 🤔 that makes zero sense. Not an hour later 10 minutes later! And because I was presently streaming something she told me she couldn't cancel it. I figured they would just stop the service right at that second and cut it off the tv...that’s what a cable company would do. That to me made no sense. And for that I would give them a 0 In customer service. They say beware the fine print, in this case beware the time stamp!
This service is terrible. It's saving grace is that it's the only major streaming service I've found that doesn't have ESPN and thus is affordable (I don't need ESPN). If you're looking for a package with ESPN, there is absolutely no reason you should be using sling TV.
IF you can get the app to load a program you're trying to watch, it very often will not load it to a Chromecast. Just a spinning orange loading screen.
It's impossible to watch a program on demand as the app is guaranteed to crash at sometime in the program everytime. What make this worse is neither of the "resume watching" or fast forward function have ever worked, so your only option is to start the program over from the beginning. Incredibly frustrating. I had this app for several months but couldn't stand wasting my money anymore and cancelled as I couldn't believe that they'd done nothing to fix the multitude of problems that this thing has. Save yourself the frustration and go with literally any other streaming service.
