Great Selection 5/5
I've used Sling for over a year. It's a great alternative to cable TV with lots of variety
Sling itself is just ok 2/5
But the app leaves a lot to be desired.
Love this app! 4/5
We cut the cord on cable about 9 months ago and never looked back. I've had mostly good experiences with sling app! I can watch my favorite shows anywhere and I'm able to navigate through the app swiftly. It does stall sometimes if the internet connection is not good, but that can be said of a lot of apps. It's super convenient!
Giving up my Dish for Sling 5/5
Just started Sling but I can pick the channels I want and pay cheaper than satellite!!!
Can't complain! 5/5
Just switched from Direct TV a month ago and am very happy with Sling so far. Works everywhere and it is very good resolution. Highly recommended for anybody that wants to get rid of cable/satellite.
Lots of channels - lots of problems 2/5
The options and variety are great - especially for the price. But the technical issues like long load times, buggy streaming, and random crashes of the app (especially on AppleTV) are plaguing what could be a promising app and service.
Wish I could do zero 1/5
Had skipping coverage of the game the whole time. Then sure enough the last quarter was completely cut off. Thought this was a great alternative to cable but it wasn't. Literally f$&@ this app for real
Good app 4/5
Works flawlessly most of the time.
Love It! 5/5
I bought this service and use it via Roku on 4 sets and have it in my iPad. I have brought my Roku 1000 miles and used sling tv there while on vacation. It is half what I was paying for the same service on directv. I love the "on demand" feature for most stations. It has met my expectations in every way and continues to improve, such as the recently enhanced grid guide.
Absolutely pathetic 1/5
Does not work - a ripoff.
Great service for me 4/5
the internet speed you have will dictate the quality of viewing. I am fortunate enough to have excellent speed and connection so I don't have an issue with it. Although I would like to see sling incorporate local channels somehow, that would be outstanding. I also would like to see sling decrease the stream lag from regular TV to sling. Sling can be 5-15 seconds behind normal tv viewing. All around I really enjoy it for the price, I have blue and orange and I get a ton of quality channels.
By Bad Update👎
Nothing like its advertised to be. Better prices than cable for sure but other than that it's about the same
Love the concept 1/5
I just wish it would work consistently. Someday, this product will be a problem for the cable co's, but not until it works. Too many will lose patience. I own it now because it's very cheap. As soon as it works more than 50% of the time, I'll cancel cable.
Mobile service is horrible! 2/5
By Change ditch
Compared to YouTube tv, Sling service is downright slow as molasses! The phone app never works! If YouTube tv wasn't expensive I would have dumped Sling.
App Issue 1/5
The latest app update causes the app to crash every time I open it.
Great for the value 5/5
After almost 10 years of paying regular cable TV, I decided to try Sling TV.
I do not use it for mobile devices, I primarily use it to stream with my Roku device on TV.
I also have a very fast internet service.
So far, after 1 month of using it, I am very pleased with it. It has never frozen, works great and I ended up having many more Soccer channels than I originally expected.
Sling TV in combination with Roku bring so many more channels than the ones I had with my cable provider.
I am also paying $5 a month to get their DVR services. I can record all the programs I want and see them when I want.
It takes some time to get used to navigating and using the remote control as some features are not as easy as just clicking the channel you are looking for, with Sling TV you need to scroll down or up to find your channel.
Beware: sports fans 1/5
If you want this to watch any live sports, you’ll be disappointed. The stream will consistently cut out, stutter, and jump, at the worst imaginable times!
Imagine watching a great game then there 2 minutes left in the fourth quarter, just as the most important play is happening it hangs, the spinner shows for a long time. When it comes back, you hear the cheers, and the announcer is telling you how amazing that play was, and how you just witnessed history out on the field, and they cut to a commercial, which plays fine now. You’ll have to watch a replay in a few days to see what happened, enjoy!
Sling is great for car rides 5/5
By Grayson Gesell
Great at taking your money. But that's all. 1/5
Service frequently buffers or cuts out. App is slow to load. Often freezes trying to pull up the guide. And we had an unauthorized purchase of a PPV fight made on our account somehow, and despite the fact that we contacted them twice prior to the event, they refused to offer a refund. So if you want a fairly cheap service, you'll get what you pay for, and every now and then you'll pay for stuff you never bought.
So far very good 5/5
It has worked fine for me
Never works when you want it 1/5
By Texas worker
Its such a frustrating app. It struggle r during live sports broadcast and won't ever load shows that are listed in their archive.
I'm ready to quit it and find something else.
A BAD CASE OF THE SPINNING WHEEL 1/5
The Sling Service has everything going for it: Perfect price, great selection, convenience. Unfortunately the team hasn't ironed out the technical issues with their streaming & app. Our family would constantly be plagued by error codes, freezing, half recorded episodes, "Spinning Wheel Syndrome"... very disappointing. The reliability was so poor we often questioned whether we would make it through a single TV episode, or if the episode would load successfully in the first place. Today we converted to PlayStation VUE based on the reviews and the channel availability. Wish us luck, and tread lightly with this one, Friends.
Love this 5/5
Loving this app keep up the good work
Constantly freezes during playback. Takes 2 hours to watch a 1 hour show.
This app has gotten worse with time not better. I don't have the words to express how much I hate this app.
Doesn't load half the time 1/5
Never loads on mobile 1/5
The service works decently on my NVIDIA Shield, but NEVER loads on my iPhone 6 Plus. Customer service is unbelievably awful to the point that it's a waste of time even reaching out to them with issues, of which there are many.
App stopped working on iPad iOS 9.3.5 1/5
Stopped working. App download page says iPad iOS 9 and above. I have iPad 3. Can't go higher than iOS 9.3.5. So, should be supported. Works on my other devices, but not iPad 3.

Great App👍🏾🎥 I love sling tv 📺I love ❤️ this app
Cutting the cord 4/5
I love Sling! It's been great and I haven't had any problems with it freezing. We have charter internet at 60mbs, so no problems streaming. I have a Roku box and wired directly to the modem, but I stream wirelessly to the bedroom with no problems either. I have no problems recommending this app.
Good, I'll recommend this service 5/5
By wilfredo Q
Excelente servicio de televisión
Works for me! 5/5
This helps me save a little money on cable bill, got my CNN and other favs
Great app and channels 5/5
I haven't had cable since 2010-11, thank you sling for giving me back what I've been missing, and at a reasonable price. Have had issues viewing one night but it was during a storm, probably internet provider's fault. Great channel selection and great value. Has really improved since 2015.
Worst streaming service and customer support 1/5
Terrible. Had error codes on two phones and casting to chromecast. "IT specialists" were a joke. Told me to reinstall the app. The kicker, the wouldn't refund my month bc "they don't do refunds" even though you couldn't get the service to even work. Scam. SCAMMMMMM! Don't waste your money.
Best thing since sliced bread!! 5/5
I've had Sling TV since 2015, dropped Directv and have never looked back. Saved lots of money. Great service, Great price. Love it!!!! Lives up to it's promise, you have to give this service a try.5
Perfect for me 4/5
This service gives me the channels I want at a price that is reasonable.
I like their interface better than Hulu 5/5
It was a big deal to cut the cord for us, and we did it with Sling. After that, I tried other streaming services, but to me, Sling has the better user interface. They were one of the few to initially offer CNBC which I needed. Sure, it's not the same experience as cable....but that's why it's cheaper, DUH.
Are yu kidding me 5/5
Soo Great and reliable to the point of un belief!!!
Replaced cable and got an upgrade 5/5
I love Sling. It gives me so many options to watch what I want (which isn't all that much) where I want.
Bad app 3/5
The app needs an overhaul. Asking people to pay a monthly price needs to include an intuitive app experience. This version is disjointed and isn’t easy to figure out how to record, favorite channels, etc.
The app 3/5
I like SlingTv. A lot! It works very well for my family.
The app on the other hand.....
I use it on my iPhone 7 and on my iPad mini 4. I have to delete and re-download the app 98% of the time to use it.
Mmmm good 4/5

Works but the ui could use some more thought.
Es buena esta app para ver los partidos de fútbol 5/5
By darwing 252
También puedes ver tu programas que te hallas perdido o capítulos anteriores se las recomiendo
The app is terrible 1/5
Have a lot of issues with the app freezing while trying to cast to my tv regardless did
The television I’m attempting to cast to. I hope they fix this issue soon or they will lose yet another customer. Fortunately this isn’t the only service available
Video/audio lags with Chromecast 1/5
When using Chromecast, video and audio aren't always in sync often causing weird lag and catch-up. I don't have this problem with other video streaming apps. Ruins Rick & Morty every week 😭😭😭
Loving Life! 5/5
Saving over $45 a month on tv services since switching to Sling! Finally paying for the channels I WANT!
So buggy 2/5
The last week has been awful. Multiple times I've been unable to use at all. Other times it basically freezes when I try to switch from one channel to another. The app is making me rethink the entire service
Not even sling people is sling 1/5
By The Chees3
On demand cuts out in the middle of the show. Apple TV (current gen) fails to play with an Oops message.
It's like when programmers seriously screw up with their code, it's called an "Oops".
Programmers don't use sling, else these stupid failures would be fixed.
Doesn't hook up to Chrome Cast for Crap! 2/5
By Ios4. Junk
It takes 3-5 mins to hold up, or not at all! In my location can't even get most of the local sports I even wanted! Looking to just cut my loses and go to Hulu!??!!
Deceiving ad and bad customer service 1/5
Horrible iPhone app and customer service 1/5
I can't view any NFL games on this app. Every other channel works fine except for the one the game is on. Then that channel works when the game is off. The game is shown on the app on my Amazon fire-stick. Customer service told me I should just be getting it.
