I have had so many problems with this sling .. signing .. mutual password changes my sling has to be started and over the chat is a joke they send me a wrong number 888 to chat and it’s doesn’t make a sound when I called it . So other are pist as well
It’s Nice But Uhmmmm…… 2/5
By Alicianna W.
It’s A Good App But When I’m Watching Something It Will Go Back To A Part That I’ve Already Watched And Make Me Watch From That Part To The Part That I Watched Before It Went Back All Over Again And Then It’ll Eventually Happen Again. It’s Annoying And It’s Frustrating.
Will not play live or recorded shows! 2/5
On an iPad Air (M1) version, running IOS 16.1.1, with the latest version of the Sling App, the App will not play either recorded or live shows. I keep getting the error message “loading failure,” and advised to remove and reinstall the App, which I have done to no avail. This App has a serious bug that needs to be fixed.
Be careful 1/5
I signed up for sling to watch the Olympics a long time ago and canceled immediately. Almost a year later I get an email that my account was reactivated without my consent. Luckily I caught it early and customer service was very helpful in getting me a refund but I’ve heard that others had to eat the monthly charge. Apparently they don’t sign you out of devices upon cancelling your subscription so be careful!
Edit: it happened AGAIN, I got an email that my sling has been renewed. This is after changing my password, calling customer service to DELETE my billing info, and canceling my subscription. Some random persons billing info is on my account I don’t understand how this is happening but it’s such a pain.
Not very helpful! 1/5
I canceled my account about 10 days ago online and they didn’t send me an email stating it was canceled and still charged me $50 after trying to charge me for ten days when i called to get help they said they couldn’t do anything to refund me because I didn’t have a conformation email stating that it was canceled. I haven’t even used it . Worst service ever!
By Touché $07
I reactivated my account to watch the NFL. After I paid I am informed they are not streaming the playoffs in my area. I canceled within an hour and they won’t issue a refund.
Guide for travel channel not working or recording 1/5
What’s up with the tracer channel guide missing prime time shows DVR not recording it either.
Glitches with recording shows 1/5
I have had my shows spoiled 4 times because for some reason, when I pause the show, it just starts 10 minutes ahead sometimes. It’s ridiculous to pay almost $50 for an app and to have simple tech issues like that. Makes it feel like a rip off
If I could give it a 0 I would 1/5
I hate this company so much, but some of the shows I want to watch are only available here. I feel like I’m being held hostage. Not worth the money, lots of bugs (commercials will play for 30 minutes just repeating on a bad day, on a good day 10 minutes of commercials each break)
DVR sometimes completely fails and the stream quality is eh 1/5
Occasionally the DVR will fail to record or a glitch will happen that is NOT on the customer’s end. This happens regardless of how many hours are used on the DVR, it’s not a storage issue. The streams are not always reliable, even with very strong internet speeds.
Sling customer service is not helpful and has never resolved an issue for me, and they obviously are cutting corners on their end and are bleeding subscribers because of this (in addition to raising prices). Just cancelled my service with them, and they are making me consider uncutting the cord with cable providers.
Don’t bother watching on demand movies 1/5
The app glitches regularly during streaming which is expected at times except there’s no way to scrub back to where you are at for on demand titles. Loved watching the movie 42 until it froze during the last 20 minutes with no way to return to finish it. Extremely frustrating for $60/mo
Just switched from fubo to sling blue just to get the USA network so I can finish the premier league . There is some cost savings but the App UI is very buggy and lacking basic functionality . Also still shows ALL channels even after you select in settings to show what you have subscribed. The resolution is something from the 90s. Not sure I will stay.
App doesnt log in 1/5
Every time I start the app I get a 10-100 error code and the main screen circle spins forever. I contacted the customers service chat line and after they told me to do everything I’ve already done a few times their answer was “well that’s all I can suggest, I’ll have the server team look into it.” That’s about as helpful as sand paper toilet paper. Going on 4 months and still can’t get into the app.
A few things you need to add 5/5
I love your app, but 200 hours of DVR is not enough. Please consider adding unlimited DVR to your service. I know I would be a lot happier with that.
You need more sports offerings. You have Paramount networks, but no CBS Sports Network. Why? Please add them. They have more college football and basketball games that fans will want to watch. Like me.
Finally, you have 1 local channel on Sling. Which is my local Fox affiliate. To access my local channels, I have to go to numerous streaming apps to access them. Please make things more convenient. I really like your app, but there is another service that has every local channel I use. I’m considering going to them instead. Please make things better for users like me. Thank you for your time.
The best 5/5
The best to watch sports and movie .
I am hacked 1/5
By CC & DW
Someone with any advice please help out of this situation !!
Error 10-100 1/5
Sadly this app only gives me the 10-100 error and I can’t get past the login. Chatted with reps and they didn’t have a solution. I’d change my rating if I could even login to the app to test it.
Unreliable lately 1/5
For the past month or so the app has been unwatchable. I get a streaming error 28-60 over and over. Thank goodness the Roku app still works. Nothing in my setup has changed. Rebooting fixes it but I am not going to reboot every time I want to use it.
Watching recorded programs 2/5
Why is the recorded program not available on my ipad. It stated not available in the US. So i can only watch on the TV app only. This is not a good service if this is the case when traveling.
Only 30 viewable on My Watchlist?????😡 1/5
I just signed up again and noticed I can only see 30 saved shows/movies on my watchlist. No option to show more or load more on the list. This is frustrating and inconvenient.😡 How am I supposed to go to a specific show? I would have to type it in. I’m not doing that. My Watchlist should be endless. And I see you still only have 50 hours of DVR unless you pay more but only get 200. This is 2023 lets get with the times and make it unlimited like other streaming services, especially since you keep raising the price. I think it’s best I go back to Philo where I can see ALL the shows/movies I save and get unlimited DVR. Bye!
Horrible App 1/5
By Say no to Slingtv
When using with Airplay the closed caption will not turn off. Can disable CC when watching on IPhone not with Airplay. No problems with Airplay on other Apps or browser. Tried using Apple video adapter and Monster HDMI that works with other Apps but not Slingtv. Only way I can watch Slingtv app without CC is on my phone. This will be my last month trying Slingtv on any media. Customer service seems nonexistent.
Poor Chromecast Compatibility 2/5
Overall the app is decent if you want to watch on your device; however, if you want to watch a game replay through a Chromecast the app will give you plenty of time to write reviews about how frustrating it is to use with Chromecast. The app force feeds additional commercials which usually have the effect of crashing the connection then it restarts whatever you were watching at the beginning or maybe some random location so you lose your place. And if you thought about going back to watch a play in that basketball game, forget about it because that functionality doesn’t work. Or maybe you thought you’d skip the commercials ... too bad ... you can’t jump forward either. I subscribed to sling for the sports and it really fails as a sports fan.
Mostly good for OTA TV 3/5
By Corbin Davenport
Right now I only use Sling with an AirTV 2 box, not one of Sling’s paid plans. Setting up my OTA channels with the app was pretty easy, no big problems with streaming, DVR works, all that fun stuff. You can even screen record with the app running.
I have noticed a few minor annoyances. When you lose signal, a popup covers the entire app until the signal is restored. Picture in Picture Mode doesn’t work for OTA channels, but they do work for the free Sling channels. There’s also no detailed quality options or information about the current video resolution/audio bitrate/etc, like YouTube. You just get to pick between low, good, best, or auto quality. I also notice the audio quality is worse than the original broadcast.
Again, I haven’t tried Sling’s own TV package, but the experience for OTA TV is pretty good.
Sling tv 1/5
By millie cekovic
I did delete some photos and apps but still didn’t get this app reinstall 😤
Does not work 1/5
This app does not work properly on either my iPad or my Samsung smart TV. It gets snagged on fast forward and rewind then repeatedly replays commercials that did not exist on original broadcast in DVR mode. Very weak tech. Going to cancel.
It never loads on iPhone!!
Can’t restart episode until after watching ads 1/5
“Video controls are disabled during ad play”
So I have to wait and watch ads before rewinding to know if I want to watch the programs.
“Video controls disabled during ad play” 1/5
So I can’t restart the episode when I walk into the room until I watch the ads? F*** you
“Video controls disabled during ad play” 1/5
I walk into the room but I can’t restart the episode until I watch the ads. Screw off Sling!!!
Play when locked 3/5
Should be able to listen to shows in the background when phone is locked
No customer service 1/5
Sling is definitely the service for you if you’re cool with all of the following:
- constant rising prices with no increase in offerings or quality
- the DVR feature never works, then you will be gaslit into believing that is somehow your fault. Check the slingtv subreddit - you’ll see a lot of customers complaining about this
- watching the same 3 commercials over and over and over again
- virtually no customer service whatsoever. You have a problem? Your only option is to WRITE a letter to MAIL IN. I am not joking, this is literally what I was told while trying to troubleshoot my DVR problems.
Casting to chrome cast is janky 2/5
Tried with multiple chrome cast devices and it just doesn’t work well. Buffers and disconnects videos. I can stream other apps just fine so it isn’t a bandwidth or internet problem, it’s an app problem.
Fix the pause, fast-forward, play back 3/5
I love sling but pausing, fast forwarding and playback are terrible. You’ll pause your show as soon as you fast forward something will be lost and you’ll lose the show you’re watching. Fix it
Not reliable. Full of problems 1/5
This service is not reliable. You will have a problem every other month with very little help from sling. Don’t bother
Suggestions based on viewer preferences bad 3/5
By Major Ursa
The suggestions are rarely anything that I would consider watching. I am UCLA fan and a U$C game is always suggested. I have to do a search every time to the Bruin game.
Extremely disappointing 3/5
By sourdough _sam
If this is as good as streaming television gets I’m going back to satellite. Buffering is terrible. Multiple video screen freezes while audio keeps going. Only solution is to back out the app and trying to restart. Live football was absolutely horrible.
Do not buy their AirTV 1/5
Nothing but repeat don-descriptive error messages, sometimes a few days apart, sometimes a few weeks apart. But consistently error messages.
Looks like sling is “woke” 1/5
Can’t watch my favorite tv show “trigger time on the pursuit channel. I guess some of the features I pay for such as watch on demand won’t work when it comes to some of my 2A shows.
Fix it sling tv. Or I’ll find another service to stream.
Add base streaming service 1/5
You are literally see more ads from the streaming service than any other streaming service in your life. it is an ad base streaming service and it is the worst
Me myself wouldn’t give sling not even one star 1/5
Sling have the worst customer service in the world advise anyone not to deal with sling
Doesn’t work 1/5
I have deleted and redownloaded the app several times and it still doesn’t work and to think I pay for sling all to keep having these issues?!
Used to be good……. 1/5
Honestly I am so disappointed. I restarted my subscription so I can watch on iPad. For entire month I have had an error code. Tells me to try again after one minute and if not hard reset. I deleted, restarted any troubleshooting I could think of-nothing. Called customer service, waited forty five minutes, to be told they would give me a full credit for the month and get tech support to solve the issue. I got nothing, no credit no support. I canceled and most likely won’t be returning. Sling has been solid for two plus years until now.
Too frequent ad breaks 1/5
Watch free with ads is fair. Interrupting movie with Ad breaks every 10 minutes too much for me to keep watching.
Horrible Streaming service 1/5
I was extremely disappointed in Sling TV on the iPhone and MacBook. The channels go blank randomly and then won’t go back to live tv. It is aggravating when I’m watching sports. It times out at the worst times. I will exit and get back in and the show will start over. Unexplainable. Hopefully Sling TV fixed it. I will not be returning to Sling.
Freezes every few minutes when streamed to my TV. You’d think after so many negative reviews they’d fix it but instead they just raise their prices.
I used to have Sling but I realized they don’t have a lot of channels. Service is ok but channel selection and the price for service is to high for what you get. I will never return.
Shahid on Demand 1/5
Shahid on demand does not have all episodes. For example The Office only has 6 episodes so I have to go to Shahid app to watch all episodes. Some tv shows have all episodes but some are not. Need review
TOO MANY ADS 1/5
This is absolutely ridiculous I can’t leave the app to answer a text or walk away from my phone without having to rewatch 3 minutes of ads every time I open my show again. Today I tried to watch it on my tv instead and your app played 6 minutes of ads and another ad was starting before I got to see even one second of my show I was so angry I closed the app and gave up. Screw you guys for making it so hard to enjoy your platform.
Never works 1/5
This app always shuts down while using or does not allow me to view shows/movies/channels. It’s quite frustrating, especially when I’m out of town trying to watch formula 1. Also, why can’t we have all practices on ESPN 1, 2, or 3?
