Sling simply the best 5/5
Just love it. The best way to watch tv. Modern way of enjoying tv on the go.
Don’t get 1/5
By No Donatins
Sling tv will screw you out of your money . They will charge you before your 7 days are up and tell you no refund and sorry about your luck
YouTubetv way better
Don’t waste your money 1/5
Yea the basic channels work but i dont see certain programs and channels that should be airing. Additionally, what is the point of offering people extra add-ons if there are so many restrictions that you dont state when people sign up??? I signed up for sports package but i was unable to 1. Watch almost all nationally televised nfl 2. Unable to find MANY college games that should show up 3. Unable to see ANYTHING on espn3 even though i had signed up for it. So, simply put, dont fall for this crap. You are wasting your money. Canceling before I get charged.
Sometimes it is hard to log on
ok with some problems 1/5
after about 6 months, it's and ok app with a number of annoyances. it will frequently hang. I have to restart the apple tv often to reestablish functionality. The lack of show times on the tiles has be come annoying. I have adjusted my ratings downward after using this app for a while. The original impression was 4 stars. After 6 months, my opinion was down to 3 stars. My opinion is now down to two stars.
Update: dropping to 1 star because the app basically locks up the Apple TV. I have two Apple TVs and each one has to be restated daily to restore full functionality of the app. The Sling service is good, just the functionality of the app has become very annoying. If this problem was fixed I would give it 4 stars, but as is, the app is a solid 1 star.
Kobe’s last game 4/5
Kobe’s last game ever. Had to see it. Got sling a ding dong dang
saved the day. #showtime
I like that there is more than one way to find a show! Having my carrier with me wherever I go is great!
More local channels!!! 3/5
The app is good but it could be better! You should offer more local cable channels and remove ALL sports channels. There are 6 sports channels in the reg line up, that should be a packageof it's own, just like the life style package and all other packages offered. Need more local cable channels and this app would be GREAT! Please consider that option.
Fantastic 😎👍🏻 5/5
I am using the SlIng TV on my Apple TV 4th generation. It works great. I signed up for the cloud recorder too. I think many of these negative reviews were perhaps people having issues using AirPlay from their iPhone to the Apple TV.
Try it out for a week free. Ba bye cable
Intermittent and difficult to change channels 2/5
1. Having watched now for many months, have been disappointed by the fragile nature of the picture: off and on, reboot, and then have to to settle for a continuing problem.
2. The management of the Chanel’s us cumbersome—why not reformat and make it work easier?
Freezes all the time there hasn’t been a show or movie I been able to watch with out any problems have to keep resetting it all the time 👎🏼
Service is good, application needs a lot of work 2/5
The application is not user friendly at all. Is very difficult to see what’s on at the moment, you really need to know what and when you want to see something. Filters do not work properly, for example in “My TV” I can’t find a channel, even when I’m paying additional for the Caribbean package. If I go to the guide, I find the channel (in some occasions) and can see it’s programming.
So glad I switched 5/5
By Senior Citizen Ed
Both my wife and I are so glad we switched to Sling. We were cable TV customers for 25 years and we grew so tired of their tactics and continual price increases. There didn't seem to be any other options until we heard of Sling. My brother signed up for it first and he loved it. So we thought we'd try it too and we have been so happy that we did. We love it! It offers everything that we want to watch and there have been no price increases. We can watch all kinds of concerts, love their on demand, love all the college football games shown each week, and love that we can see all the channels that we want to watch. Highly recommend Sling! Definitely rate it 5 stars.
Service ok, Apple TV and iPhone apps bad! 2/5
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.”
Tv connection device 4/5
By Jige the tiger
I have an Apple TV adaptor and now since your new update it want let me play the show on the tv from my phone. It says the mirroring system is on (screen recording) and it will be off. So could y’all please find a way to fix that “issue”.
Your app needs work!!! 1/5
Very buggy. I can’t even drag the slider to rewind or forward if the app disconnects from my chromecast. Very slow on network connection when trying to watch without WiFi. Please work on this. Not a very good experience with Sling TV so far.
Won’t allow screen mirroring to the tv 1/5
By Irkin Urchin
Won’t allow screen mirroring and thus prevents us from watching it on the tv. Seriously considering cancelling our subscription if this isn’t resolved soon. How long before the next update, Sling? We’re growing impatient.
Worthless on Sundays. 1/5
We pay $20 a month(more than I pay for any other television service without commercials) just to watch The Walking Dead. Only we can never watch it, the show just buffers, the screen goes black.
Miserable program 1/5
It says on the chromebox that will work with sling. You watch - spotty streaming. The DVR does not work at all with chromebox.
Disgusting product and service!
How could you possibly get 4.2 out of 5? It is spotty- the guide is frustrating at best. Check out YouTube for tv - much better guide. Cuts in and out - and I have 50mbps Service.
I cannot open the app on my iPhone. I get an error message (10-100) and am instructed to force close and wait 1 minute and try again. That does not work and neither does uninstalling and reinstalling the app. An app that doesn’t work is a useless app.
8 minute commercial breaks 1/5
I kid you not. Just watched a show which was over 50% commercials.
It’s just ok 3/5
Nice to have an alternative to the ridiculous cable prices, but the connection isn’t as consistent like Hulu’s live streaming service.
Good alternative to cable. 4/5
It’s a good alternative to cable but they def over hype their packages. I’m assuming it’s still fairly new and they are trying to get more channels. But the $25 thing isn’t actually 100% true. I pay bout $35 a month for it and get a lot of the sports I want to watch. Mostly football and they are def cheaper than cable. Wish they had more local channels or ESPN. Fingers crossed. But all and all I’m happy with the service.
Stars are not enough to justify 1/5
App on phone just keeps giving me error messages that I’m using incorrect password. The app is okay. It stops and pretty much at night it just stops. Then what's worse is that after the 7 day free trial after making sure that I changed it to my preferred subscription and double checked MULTIPLE TIMES! I get a bill for 3.5 times the amount that I should be charged for! I reached out to their - email only customer service (twice) since I am charged $80 for a service that I should be charged only $24.99 and no one responded to me about this matter yet. Tell me about frustration. So I went back to the website to check my subscription preferences and it was for the $80 that I already changed multiple times so in short the website itself is not working! Just frustrating!
Me gusta mucho pero ojalá incluyan a Telemundo porque ya viene el mundial
Buggy Apple TV app 1/5
Keep getting spinning wheel, have to install and reinstall app multiple times to work. Same issue does not happen on iOS devices.
Love it 5/5
Better than paying $50, $60 or even $80 dollars affordable and has what I need.. Yes there are small bugs here and there but for the most part it's only once in a while
Game Players! 1/5
While at the store today I bought a $ 25.00 Sling TV gift card for Sling TV. Later I downloaded the App and entered the gift card pin. The message stated that the pin # had been used and is not valid. I tried the pin 3 times. I tried Sling when it first came out. It was BS buffering back then. Putting the same pin on more than one gift card smells a little crooked to me.
WAS good but now a fail 2/5
Latest update now stops connecting iPhone by HDMI adapter to the TV. Did not say anything about this in the update description. Better fix Fast or I’m out. Seems like with so many upset just unfck the update til you fix it.
Wrong title 1/5
I love t wat h my favorite shows, that’s why I took the sling. Now the manor problem I have is I have to fish down the show I want to watch. The name and the shows are not the same. The name of the show is one and it’s laying totally different show😡
Doesn’t work well on Apple TV 1/5
By Blitzed by bejeweled
I wish I could like this app, it’s a great alternative to cable if it worked ! Usually when I try to use it on my Apple TV it just shows a spinning circle and won’t bring up any selections. It’s not my internet because all of my other apps will stream just fine. It also works reasonably well on my iPad but who wants to watch a movie on that when you are at home. In addition the new update on the iPad isn’t syncing video with Apple TV anymore. When you reach out to customer service they just tell you to restart etc.. Thinking of cancelling my subscription and trying another streaming service. No need to pay for something I can’t access on all of my devices.
Bad app 1/5
I really dislike the app. It’s not user friendly, it doesn’t save your watch history/progress, the app is constantly down or malfunctioning in some way. I wish it wasn’t one of the few ways to stream tv without a cable contract. Really really frustrating to use.
Amazing Service! 5/5
I am very impressed with the service and love the interface. It’s a million times ahead of directv now. The only thing it’s missing is a few channels that i really want but other then that it’s totally worth it.
Terrible to say the least 1/5
Great alternative to cable, horrible service! Glitchy and many bugs.
Can't Screen share or mirroring 1/5
By Philly Heights
Defeats the purpose of watching on your tiny screen when you can mirror to larger screen
Very buggy iPad app 1/5
By Duane Williams
Constant refreshes make the long lists of shows on the Guide screen (for example) nearly unusable if scrolling is required to view them. Every refresh resets the scrolling back to the beginning of the list, frustrating the user's attempt to view the items that are initially off screen.
Forget this crap! Unless you like ads all day long.
New era for TV 5/5
Absolutely love it! It’s great to be able to access your tv channels and dvr from just about anywhere. I’m hooked.
Los guzmanes 5/5
Great picture whit good channels at the best
Little buggy 4/5
By Tanushri. Mishra
Even though it’s very good. But it has tendency to get disconnected from chromcast very often. Some time 3 times in an hr.
By Champ III
It is very Nice
All u guys up here talking about u love this garbage must work for this company. There’s nothing good about this service but the idea. I will be canceling before the 7 day trail period is up. GLITCHY as hell all the time.
Awful, terrible, horrible service. The streaming interruptions are constant. I have been missing almost entire programs on a regular basis due to persistent freezing and never ending loading. Granted, my internet is not the best, but no other streaming service I have used has had this issue. I will use up the rest of my paid month and then I am DONE.
What am I paying for?! 1/5
By Shai N
Since the new update I can’t use the app with my HDMI cord. It says that I am recording and screen doubling when I am not. So now I’m paying 50$ a month for something I can’t even use.
Sling needs to fix Chromecast issues. 2/5
On other platforms Sling works okay. But don’t bother connecting to Chromecast. The sound glitches, lags and other errors make it impossible to watch anything. Since I primarily use Chromecast for watching TV I’m probably going to cancel.
I Love sling tv! 5/5
Very convenient. The customizing feature makes it very practical. You just pay for the channels you love :)
Great way to watch my favorite shows anywhere! 5/5
By Hospital setting
I love the that it offers the shows I watch the most at a price well below other services.
Guide and DVR 1/5
By Yogi 543
The guide is slow and inaccurate on different devices. DVR errors on playback.
Sling tv 1/5
Con la ultima actualización cuando conecto mi iPhone ala TV me bloquea no no puedo ver el contenido arreglen esto por favor
Good idea. Bad app. 1/5
You get a lot for the money but it doesn’t work well with the Apple TV platform. App crashes and freezes regularly. Best try a Roku or another device.
