Play back 4/5
Needs better playback and fast forward features
Needs Improvement 3/5
Subscribed with the Blue Plan and DVR Plus option for over a year, and my takeaway is it’s a very glitchy app on all my platforms (iPhone, iPad and Apple TV). Live TV will often just quit after starting a new channel. The DVR is just mostly glitchy because of error codes that won’t allow playback. Now the price is increasing from $30 to $35/month. They are increasing the glitchy DVR Plus option ($5 per month) from 50 hours to 200 hours (it’d be nice if it actually worked instead of increasing storage). Then they are integrating Locast into their channel guide so you’re able to watch local channels EXCEPT Locast is a donation service that will stop playback every 15 minutes to ask for $5/month. So Sling is not giving you complimentary local TV service provided by Locast, rather it’s just integrated the local channel info into their guide. Whoopee! Overall, this service from Sling falls into “you get what you pay for”. Also, Sling…PLEASE stop asking me to rate your app! This is not my first review and yet, they keep asking!
Olympics search broken 1/5
You can’t search for “olympics tennis” or “olympics cycling” to find what you want. You can only search for “olympics” and then you have to scroll through everything. Sad functionality. Do better please!
I subscribed just to watch the opening Olympics. I chose Sling Blue as it has NBC and NBC Sports. But guess what. A replay of a football match was shown instead! Ugh. You should give me back my $10. If there’s a rating lower than 1 star, that’s the rating you deserve.
Freezes during commercials 1/5
Picture freezes when commercials come on. Only happens on AppleTV's - it works fine on Roku.
BEST CABLE INTHE BUSSINESS 5/5
Cheap packages , excellent Customer Service, Update is amazing , Just United w Locast for local channels free no extra charge. Amazing Company . Keep up the great work.
The updated App is terrible 1/5
By cc Bb admdd
Recent update is so bad. I cannot believe an “update” makes an app worse than it was before.
Hate the new update 1/5
Can’t express how much I hate the new update. They’ve completely changed the home Screen and the guide to be not user friendly. The toggles on the top of the screen were so much easier than the tiny icons on the side of the screen. Also it seems like less fits on the screen not on both the home and guide pages. The guide also doesn’t work on my tv as once I watch a show, I can’t just back out and look for another show. Now after I back out, every channel that I flip to says it is what I just watched. So I have to go back to home and then press guide and it always starts me at the top of the guide. Why would sling change what was already working so well?
New App has issues 4/5
Love Sling TV!! Have been a very happy customer for several years. However they recently updated everything to a new look. And some of the features are fun. But if you want to just scroll the guide it has real issues. At least in my devices, it doesn’t display right, I have to completely close the app and go back in and sometimes that doesn’t fix it. Hopefully they work the kinks out cause over all its a great service.
They will charge your card!!!! 1/5
By Chivo 305
Do not accept free trials because they will charged your card and even if you cancel the subscription and get a refund,it will be refund it 5 to 7 business days. The system is built like that. 🤦🏻♂️😡🤬
Just middle finger for you !!! 1/5
Can't express how angry I am with your overlaying ads. Watching cricket has been nothing but pain. Ain't I and the sponsors of the game paying you enough that you have to put overlaying ads?
AirTV 2 and Sling poorly executed 2/5
Good concept. Poor execution. The interface leaves a lot to be desired.
AirTV2 isn’t a stable platform. It fails more than it works. I was hoping that the new update would resolve the issue but it was a no go.
Please go back to the drawing board.
Ads ads ads. Get another provider. 1/5
I got a subscription. I tried watching, but every 3 minutes 4 minutes of commercials ran. Totally unacceptable for a paid service. Get a different provider. Their viewing library was poor too, so that’s no bargain. Get another.
Please fix this app!! 1/5
In the last two weeks, the commercials sling injects into each commercial break are stalling and forcing a return to the menu. This means I can no longer pause because I can only watch through to the first commercial break before returning to the menu, and because sling does not allow rewinding once the show is technically over, I can’t see the end of any show if I’m even a minute behind. It is getting so disruptive that I will have to cancel if it continues and try another service. :(
I signed up for Sling specifically for the NBA playoffs 1/5
In the final championship game, the service went out for the last two minutes of game play. I had to refresh google to get the live score. Sling would not reload and it was not an issue with my internet service. Will never pay for again.
Too expensive 1/5
No any content for money which is been charges.
Latest Update is AWFUL!! 3/5
The latest update is causing all kinds of problems, and even whe it does not, it takes longer to scroll down the menu. Several times in the last few days, the guide has the same program on every channel from the last one you were on before it screwed up. Also, some times the time on the guide does not change when you go back to it after watching a show. PLEASE FIX THIS OR JUST LET ME HAVE THE OLDER VERSION!! This is the first time I have had problems with Sling and have loved it and not regretted getting rid of cable.
App Constantly crashes 2/5
If it isn’t freezing up, it’s crashing. When it wants to work, it’s a good alternative to cable. Just be prepared for some inconsistencies & frustration
New format 3/5
Not happy that the channel line up has been taken away. Too hard to find programs. On demand is difficult also. And if you really wanted my review I shouldn’t have to try a nickname that’s not taken!!!
DVR service 1/5
The DVR doesn’t always let you watch a recording show from the beginning. This bug needs to be fixed.
For a streaming app, basic features are broken 1/5
The Digital DVR feature is so broken. You cannot rewind while the live stream is being recorded. You cannot skip ads in previously recorded content. The app constantly switches back to the previously watched episode when trying to select a new episode.
It’s 2021 and yet these basic capabilities are broken in a paid subscription app.
Worst app ever 1/5
This app is absolutely terrible. I can’t begin to tell how many times it has cut out at the end of EVERY SHOW I WATCH. It continually is behind even when you “watch live.” Not worth a single penny. We are going back to cable, don’t waste your money it’s just complete frustration every time we try to watch tv.
Two weeks ago I would have given this app all 5 stars, but since the update, anything that I have recorded can not be watched. As soon as the commercials come on playback stops and says that something went wrong.
The must reliable tv app 5/5
It’s work perfectly
Sling Blows 1/5
Really dislike the new interface 1/5
I REALLY don’t like the new update and prefer the way it was. It’s harder to see what’s on and I can no longer watch shows that aired earlier in the day, which was one main reason I stayed with Sling vs. cable. I’d love it if you changed it back.
Sling iOS app update 1/5
I can watch on an old iPad but the most recent iPhone app update is horrible
Fantastic service 5/5
A lot of buffering 1/5
By lrs smith
II have 2 brand new 32 inch tv’s so 5here’s no reason for all the buffering. I can’t watch a single program without it buffering on abt every 5 minutes. I want to know what the problem is
DVR a constant sea of disappointment 1/5
Consistent issues with watching things “tape delayed” on the iOS app. Always skips to live, impossible to scroll to time, Always spoiling results.
July 2021 Update Stinks 1/5
By Simple Guy, California
The current update changes everything I liked about the Sling app and makes it harder to use the app and quickly access what I like.
I’m glad I have it I just wish it did not run down my battery. 5/5
It works great. Worth getting better than cable .
They are fraudsters 1/5
One of the worst apps I have seen
So much better than cable 5/5
Xfinity was so expensive and customer service was horrible so canceled that and looked for alternatives. So glad I found sling. Just like cable but cheaper and better. Love it.
Sling App 5/5
By Da Bop Fam83
It’s a great app especially wen u can choose the channels u love to watch 😍👀👍🏾
Latest update 2/5
I love sling but the latest update makes it freeze & be glitchy. It’s especially glitchy when scrolling through guide or watching dvr shows. I’m also not a fan that the guide view options no longer have the channel view.
Update Disaster! 1/5
Why ruin a good thing? Since the upgrade the app constantly freezes up and you have to do a Force Close and reopen it. It freezes on the Chanel Guide grid! This has never happened to me before this update and has happened ten time today alone after installing the updates! Way to ruin a good thing!
Bravo sling! Best decision to cut the cord!
The NEW view 3/5
I absolutely despise the new view! I can’t go to each channel to find on demand items and the On Demand selection isn’t user friendly IMO. Please go back to the older view. I have logged out and switched to antenna or Netflix/Prime three times in two days because this view is hideous.
I like the channel options, but I can’t with this change.
TV app 5/5
Great to watch my sports while working 12 hours
Not good. 1/5
Randomly stops all the time on many different devices. Navigation could be better.
The worst!! 1/5
Every time a commercial comes on (which happens every 5-10 minutes), the casting to a TV from a device (phone or tablet) stops. It is so annoying!! You’re forced to watch 2 minutes of commercials, then being forced to reload the program (because it wouldn’t come back on tv) just to watch those commercials all over again. Trash service!!
Better than Direct tv 5/5
This is my first time using sling I think it’s better than direct tv
Really loved sling but HATE the app update! 3/5
New update is awful have to learn it all over such a pain! Why did it really need to change and change so much! At this rate I may just go to YouTube tv! Only gave 3 stars because it’s been pretty good up until now.
Keeps Freezing During Commercials 1/5
By Flipboard fAnnn
New update is horrible the app freezes during commercials, constantly having to restart channel, way too much commercials and constantly the same ones over and over and over every commercial break, it’s becoming annoying, wish they ran regular real time commercials instead. Also they are raising the price? This is ridiculous
By aaron ron ron
While watching certain shows the screen will go to hey certain page and freeze while the sound continues
Not working properly 2/5
Up until a few days ago the app was functioning perfectly. Since then the app will not load in a timely manner, has to be refreshed during commercial play and constant buffering even hooked up to a strong WiFi signal. If this continues I will have to cancel. I was really loving it up to that point. Disappointed. Maybe that party watch update wasn’t ready to roll out yet. Please fix ASAP.
can’t stream from cellphone 1/5
Recent inability to bypass commercials 2/5
By billu r.
Not only inability to pass commercials, but also the loss of available highly desired channels including Star Plus & ZEE TV.
