Great service, get another device
Sling TV in itself is a good cable alternative because you get what you want for the price you want to pay. I have had hardly any complaints about their service in itself. I pay $35 a month for all the sports I ever watch, which is just about unbeatable. However, the connection using the app is abysmal. The first couple months I streamed everything through my google chromecast but then it started glitching out after about 2 months. It was unwatchable and Sling’s average customer service reps had no good solutions for me. The right answer after discovering I was not the only one having this issue is that sling does not stream well using that type of device. I bought a Roku stick and the difference in performance as well as picture is night and day. So that’s why I say this app in itself is below average at best but when utilizing the proper platform, sling is an affordable service very much worth considering.
The idea is great and the service is affordable - but not always usable.
We signed up a couple months ago and would use it with our Apple hdmi hook-up on the tv and it worked pretty well. No error messages at that time - it would, however, take a long time to start a channel and sometimes i would have to shut the app off, and restart several times before it would start up.
My iPhone 8 auto-updated the app and now I get the ‘screen-mirroring’ message which makes the app unusable for me. Very frustrating. I don’t like paying for a service that is so glitchy and now completely useless. If this ever gets fixed I will sign back up because I like having the hallmark channel for the Christmas movies but it looks like that won’t happen this year.
I hope the technical issues get fixed. It’s really a great idea and a good value when it works!
Service ok, Apple TV and iPhone apps bad!
I’ve had sling for a few months now and the service is pretty good, but it’s hard to look past the glitchiness of the app. I have to close the app and restart often, it’s very hard to scroll through something to find where you left off (sometimes the app saves your place, sometimes not). Some commercials have glitches where it will freeze the app and I have to close it and start all over again. Sometimes I’ll watch something and it fast forwards at random. And I’m also a little upset about not being able to mirror from phone to tv. Also I can’t get the app to play on Chromecast very well. Every time I try the video is always very choppy, but it plays fine on my phone once I disconnect from Chromecast. Overall, this app has a long way to go before it’s anywhere near “Netflix quality.”
