I have been a sling member for about 2 years and I do absolutely love having regular tv. I enjoy watching certain shows on live tv and watching the news in the mornings so it’s worth it. However, I feel that when I first started with sling it was more cost effective, which is the exact reason people ditch cable because the prices are way to high. I do hope sling can figure out a happy medium!
Great job 4/5
Just add more sports like ones that’ll you see locally football specifically watching the locals was an issue in terms of the nfl action
Could be a lot better 2/5
Missing episodes, missing seasons, some episodes numbered incorrectly. Frustrating when binge watching a show and you are halfway through only to realize that the next few episodes are missing. Very annoying.
Forced review 1/5
By Autumn Bricks
Stop forcing me to review your app. I have already left a one star minimum review. Lets see I will make this short. Fix your app! Still waiting for sling to stop forcing me to use twatter to rate the app.
So annoying 1/5
By only got it for the free trial
This app is so laggy. If I pause for too long it won’t respond to the play button then I’d have to close the app, reopen, search, select the show, then rewatch an ad.
Not worth the price with all the glitches
Cheaper cable 2/5
I was hoping there was something better than cable but I guess Sling is just a cheaper version. Not horrible but not what I expected based off their advertising.
Better than cable 5/5
It’s better than cable. Simply cheaper than cable and a lot of fun stations to watch at a cheaper price.
Love Sling 5/5
By Maryland dude
Great service. Minor issues on rare occasion, but the App works fine 99.9% of the time. Love expanded DVR service. Coupled with AirTV, I’m not sure what else someone would need. I do wish Xbox app was compatible with AirTV, but I’m still huge fan.
Why not 5 stars? 4/5
Stick a great service They just need to stop changing the interface. Each time a little bit worse
Amazing stream spot! 5/5
Would definitely recommend!!! A+
Poor Chromecast compatibility 3/5
When broadcasting via Chromecast it stops every 5 seconds and a lot of buffering. Not always but very often
New Sling app is a joke. 1/5
Whoever decided that Sling app needed fixing is mistaken
Review Sling 4/5
I’m very much enjoying watching sling in HD on my IPad Pro mostly movies. I have had the opportunity to see many of the hit movies. I would like to see a bigger choice of most recent movies from years 2017, 2018, 2019 and less of older movies. Thank you for this wonderful entertainment service.
Awful experience 1/5
By nagaraju p
Playing ads in between the game.
Garbage and overpriced 1/5
Started with a cheap trial. Missed the cancel dates so automatically renews for a month a double the price. I wanted to watch an NFL game and found I didn’t have the station. I had to upgrade. Now the price is near $80 and I still don’t get the game I wanted. Fast forward a week to the next Saturday. Wanted to watch a big ten game only to find out it is on Fox and I don’t get local stations on sling. $80 spent, an awful interface for searching, few nfl games, no local channels. Had to panic subscribe to YouTube tv just to see it. Canceled my service, but they offer no refunds for partial months. So dissatisfied.
Sling tv 5/5
By jkhahd ajd
Better than all the other apps and plans I’ve tried
Sling with added Sports package 1/5
Navigation is this app leaves much to be desired. The Search and Guide features are cumbersome, inaccurate and need to be better refined by the developers. The most frustrating aspect of the app, however is its predicted length for sports events. For example 3 hrs for a Live post season baseball game. At exactly 3 hrs the live coverage stopped and the game started from the beginning. Nothing could be done to resume watching Live coverage of the game. Sling sports package.
Very unreliable service 1/5
The web service is seemingly down as well as the app for highly televised football games. Probably going back to Hulu - which may be more money but is dependable
Cutting the cord!! 5/5
Love Sling! It freed us from 6 QVCs & many other channels we never watched. The price is fine & we are able to have every channel we like!
Rewind is frustrating 2/5
I used to enjoy sling and still some things are good but when trying to watch something recorded it is frustrating. It skips back to the beginning for no reason and will not let you fast forward at will you have to wait at times, very frustrating.
Many of the sports they advertise aren’t live 1/5
By Stan Enterprises
The sports package advertised many channels, so we signed up for sling in hoping to watch the games of our favorite College football team and NFL Teams. However, many of the games are not live, you only get the rerun 2-3 days later:
Don’t get this for sports.
Also it’s slow and buffers a lot. It’s not my connection because streaming through any other app works just fine, only Sling has these problems.
Don’t get this for sports, it’s trash.
Wow my favorite show and don’t have to be slave to satellite 5/5
Bye Bye Direct TV, I found my match
Cheap but not useable 1/5
You get what you pay for. I set my favorite channels but it keeps reverting back to all channels so I have to search for my favorites channels. It keeps crashing forcing me to restart the apo. One incident happened last week. The apo crashed and it had to be restart. After it restarted program I was watching started over from the beginning. Why? The program was playing for over an hour. Long story short it’s cheaper but also has many annoying glitches. I’m going to switch to FuboTV.
My sling TV 4/5
Very hard to set DVR.
Do you have a DVR feature that I can record only 5 episodes and keep erase ones older than 5 weeks ?
Poor user interface 1/5
Search, Guide, and DVR user interface, features and navigation are all lacking in comparison to other options out there. Lost count of how many sports recordings abruptly end just before the matches ending! Makes you want to slap the Sling out of them. After several months, I’m still struggling to easily find my recordings, the organization is chaotic. Some DVR still disable fast forwarding. Horrendous. Recommend a complete overhaul with Sling Product Development, currently they’re not getting it done. Cancelled this clunk, moved on, relieved!
Keeps asking to update.. 2/5
Asked me to update right before a game winning field goal.. two weeks later it’s asking me to update again and I can’t use it until I update.. Other than that it has some good channels but mostly play commercials and no local news or sports channels..
By slim jim yummy
Need more nfl games
Great during CFB season 4/5
I upgraded to the sports package. It includes every ESPN channel plus the ACC network, SEC network and be in sports. My main complaint about slang is the remote Interface. Sometimes it works, sometimes you have to press the button four times. When you click on a show to watch you are not immediately brought there you are asked whether you’d like to watch the show or record. Which I get. Then you were asked whether you’d like to watch the live, resume, or start over. I would like to click on the show and just have it start playing is that too much to ask.
Never live 1/5
Willow tv is always having issues on sling. Even when you select “watch live”. The game starts well before. Sometimes as much as 2 hours behind. Ridiculous!!!
Stupid app 1/5
Can’t play live you stupid app when needed the most. 😡😡😡😡 negative starts if possible
Crashes, Interruptions and Poor Experience 2/5
Since this app is constantly interrupting my shows to ask for reviews I’m writing one. This app crashes all the time. When you try to start a show the audio will load but the video won’t forcing you to completely close the app and have to scroll through all the channels to find your show again. The controls are clunky and not very intuitive. Finding channels is more difficult than it should be. And there’s no way easily switch between shows if you’re jumping back and fourth between two. All of this creates a very poor user experience.
Absolute garbage 1/5
The worst streaming app. Every sporting event I watch is 1 to 2 hours behind. No obvious way to sync to live.
By red hat one
annoying app that makes you rate it and wont let you use the app without rating
No local channels ☹️ 4/5
No local channels why?
Cost to much and the update made it hard to find your favorite programs
Something missing 4/5
Developers: please add a reminder for future programs.
Dumb app 1/5
You say that you are showing live match but always show old matches inside that live show…
Very Disappointed 1/5
I want to watch live match. But when I click on watch live button it resumes where I stopped . I killed app and tried it and deleted the app and reinstalled, but still it didn’t work. It always resumes where I have stopped even though I click on watch live. Very disappointed and couldn’t able to watch live match
Where is zero star 1/5
Very bad interface. Got it to watch IPL and don’t even find live matches easily. Sling is broadcasting first innings while second innings has already started and there is no way to watch it live.
Takes money for subscription of IPL/Cricket and shows different things when a live match is on. Also, the whole screen moves up and down when watching live.
WORST SERVICE EVER!!! 1/5
I called sling costumer service and they didn’t help me at all. Instead they gave me reasons as “the same happened to me” “ call your bank” “ there is nothing we can do”
I didn’t even use the app. I will never use this service again and will tell all my relatives and friends not to use it !!
Queen Kelly👑 5/5
By Queen Kelly👑
So happy I got it!!! It has so much to choose from to watch!!!💯❣️
DVR Is fake 2/5
I wanted to watch a show that was supposed to be released on the 2nd of October, but sling changed it to the 6th of October instead. When I noticed a difference in dates between sling and the network, I decided to record the show. At 11:30 AM on the sixth, after the show ended, the show was not available in the recordings. When I saw that the on-demand availability was still showing that it was not available too, I realized that sling doesn’t record shows. The DVR is just a filter that shows On Demand content that you have selected.
Too many Commercials 1/5
By Dinesh lakna
It’s especially annoying when watching end of the over in cricket match.
Keep having the same issues with the service. Keep kicking me out a few seconds after starting to watch a program. Talked to customer service and was told to restart my Apple TV. Worked for a while then starts all over again. Don’t have that issue with other providers Pluto and Peacock. Now voice keeps lagging have to keep synchronizing audio to correct audio issues. Once again only happens with Sling. Disappointing .
Not good for fire stick where’s my cord 1/5
This system works horribly with my fire stick tires of resetting the app and rescanning works ok with Roku but fire stick please please irk shouldn’t pay for something unusable and coming from being a Directv customer this is frustrating.
Sling is Terrible 1/5
I’m really unhappy. An expensive lesson. I got Sling Blue to watch the World Series. I read it would be on both Blue & Orange. Blue has 1 channel I would watch otherwise so that is what I got. Then to find out the wildcard game is only on Orange. So, I swiftly upgraded to both so that my son & I could watch… in different parts of the house. It said 4 TVS could view at a time. Well any channel that is only on Orange you can only watch 1 at a time. That was very misleading. So for $50 only 1 of us could watch the game.
Also I thought with Sling I would be able to get local channels. No. No ABC or CBS.
Not worth $50. Not at all.
Sling’s description is very misleading.
HATE the new update 1/5
100% trash. Want to fast forward through commercials?! GOOD LUCK. Impossible to get to the exact second your show starts because it goes into hyper speed. Want to easily find the show you were not done watching? Gotta scroll. This is not user friendly. And I’m a millennial- my generation INVENTED user-friendly. Please allow us to revert back to the previous version
