Need to improve. It should also be able to make possible or easier to use or watch programs on my other computer or devices.
Fix immediately 1/5
Every time you ” update” this app for Apple tv it's worse than before, over the weekend I could not watch more than one program before it would cut off and take me back to the main screen. Last night the app immediately kicked me off as soon as I found a show to watch. This is totally unacceptable and must be fixed immediately.
Not too much to complain about! 4/5
I love this app and sling in general. The only problems I’ve faced are trying to watch a recording on my vizio smart cast it doesn’t seem to like being casted so I always have to use a Roku or other non casting app to watch recorded shows. Only other thing is I wish you could still watch the show your watching while viewing the guide. Other than that I love the app and will probably never go back to regular cable as long as the price stays fair, I’ve also been trying to tell others about switching. Thank you!
version 5.10.2 1/5
This version still has no option to create an account
No fox sports 1/5
Going to sling my cash towards YouTube tv once hockey season starts. Sling doesn’t have fox sports because of greedy reasons
Crazy Apple TV App 1/5
First off let me start off by saying that the iPad and iPhone app is awesome however the Apple TV app is terrible. I have 1GB internet and have no issues playing anything other than Sling. And the fast forward and rewind features are absolutely impossible to use trying to go thru commercials is so hard it makes you want to watch commercials just to not have to deal with trying to use fast forward.
Thank you 5/5
So much better than cable!
Sling is super fire! 🔥🔥🔥
Years ago we used Sling and was not pleased. Obviously they have made improvements and we love it.

Programming glitches at times… Drives you crazy during games… Please fix it so that it’s like TV and movie transmission.
Cut off while watching football game! 1/5
I’m very disappointed with sling. I was watching a football game and it kept cutting out. Then there was a big play at the end that could have been a game changer...sling cut off right before I got to see what happened! I did not get to see the last play that could have won or lost us the game! Why would it just cut off like that???
Sling tv is a great digital alternative to expensive cable box and satellite tv services. I bought sling tv mostly for college football in the fall but I’ve found there’s many great option of movies and shows on demand too!
Mostly Awesome 4/5
By Mommy Berger
Love everything about Sling! Except, watching all the commercials.
Locks up on iPad 2/5
It worked fine but the last couple of weeks the app freezes when scrolling through the guide, consistently, at the same place each time. Tried re-installing. No luck. Kind of liked being able to view on the iPad but now it is a pain. I can sometimes get to a channel without going through the guide but it really should work.
For the price I really like it 4/5
Would give you a 5 star but Regional Fox Sports back is no longer on Sling. I want it back.
Not impressed. 1/5
Don’t waste your money. Repetitive, non current content. Poor streaming quality overall. Consistent problems syncing with Apple TV. Blah, I want my money back.
Terrible customer service 1/5
By Tom O'Toole
Watching Arizona vs Texas Tech football game. All of a sudden TV feed stopped. Went to the guide and the game was not available to watch. All other aspects of the sling were working fine. Just that game was dropped in the 4 th quarter. I had
guests over and all were so upset. The next morning tried to use their help on line, worthless... tried to call( spent 15 min just to find a number to call), on hold for over thirty min. no answer. I called back 3 hrs. later, on hold for 25 min. still no answer...
All I can say is when it works,fine, but when things are not right this is total Crap! Finally someone came on the line, they said they could not help me. They have no clue as to what happened!
Said to try the sling help on line... told them that was no help, they didn’t believe me...supervisor came on the line, could not tell me what happened or if it would happen again. Total waste of time!

Great App👍🏾🎥 I love sling tv 📺I love ❤️ this app, however at times it doesn’t run smoothly. I don’t know if it’s internet service or something wrong with your service
No multitasking allowed 1/5
Channel selection is good but because the app does not let you do a picture in a picture function or small box option to allow you to multitask or read other social media means you have to be committed to what you are watching. This is such an easy fix. This is why this gets a low rating.
Service is not worth it... 1/5
I tried to use this service and it’s just not worth it....I got it to watch my college football team and at times it just stops to work for no reason....Worth mentioning that this is my 2nd and final try. And calling support takes another 40 minutes to reach someone live...I would not use this service..I really wouldn’t...
By Starman Press
Freezes up often. The worst is when a program you’re watching goes a little long, and instead of just continuing to air the channel you’re watching, it takes you to the menu and you miss the end of the show you were watching.
Since last uodate 5/5
By Calculating excellence
When you are on a channel and you lift your finger up to see the menu if what's on this channel, the menu USED to be ON that specific channel. NOW the menu starts at the beginning if all channels and you have to scroll to find the schedule for the channel you are actually on
PLEASE FIX! This is annoying
Do NOT purchase Sling! 1/5
By Cheesy mee
I purchased this app today after going back & forth about cutting the cable and doing extensive reviews with comparable apps (Hulu live/ you tube tv, etc.) I paid for and purchased this service today to only get an error code for every single series on bravo on demand (my favorite channel) making me unable to watch the content or enjoy what my hard earned cash had purchased. Sent a generic email and researched the code and issue without a resolution for the problem. Cancelling after the first month since I've been charged. Go elsewhere if you're honestly considering this streaming app as an alternative to cable. No customer service to resolve issues. Save your money or spend it wisely but DO NOT GIVE IT TO SLING!
Can’t find or don’t have 2/5
By no card
Can’t find my local channels and to navigate is horrible
Best TV streaming service 4/5
Would be five star if Sling Tv had Fox News
Love it but... 5/5
I really need my NBC and it only shows in some markets...apparently not mine even though it is listed in my blue membership.
I miss my Saturday Night Live.
By Big Hustle 2k19
It’s great for college football !!!
Cut cable, good alternative. Combine local networks, Roku stick and Sling..your good to go!!
Best App 5/5
Sling tv is the best app I have ever bought.
Best place to watch BeInSports!!!
Best of them 5/5
I left cable to get my sports for cheep and keep. I had tried ESPN + and for most everything they said you need a cable subscription. I had tried Hulu live and they are expensive and have less to offer.
Sling has all my sports and all tv channels for $35 a month. You can’t beat it period

Love watching sling tv any where any place ‘ tv on the go ‘ what more than u need thank u
Good value 4/5
Would like to see up to date shows and movies
Not working 1/5
This app on ALL devices need help bad. Whether I watch it on my iPhone, Apple TV, Roku or fire stick, this app seems to different on every single one. None of them act the same way and it’s bothering. On some devices it’ll work, on others it will take 10 minutes to open and run it. This app needs a major update and needs to work on all devices. DirecTv has a great looking platform that you could go off of. If it wasn’t for the constant up charge they did every week, I’d still be with them. Update to one star. Doesn’t work anymore.
I signed up for Sling 2 weeks ago and have to say I’m very pleased. The app works outstanding across all iOS devices. Even works well on Xbox One. I have not had any trouble navigating the menus and setting up favorites was relatively easy. If you are looking into cutting the cord and want to start streaming, I’d highly recommend Sling and downloading their app.
Changing channels on phone app 4/5
By Eric Duarte
Phone App should change channels with a swipe
By comedian ventriloquist
When you need to pause a movie and come back to watch it the movie is no longer available.
By NJ/NY reviewer
Great product for price but doesn't provide local network channels (CBS, ABC...) and recently removed local sports network channel (YES).
By P Lopes
Stopping work too many times
Did the one week trial and it seemed to be great. So we decided to subscribe. Now it stops playing for no reason and just gives a black screen. Or it turns off in the middle of a show and resets to my home screen. It does this even when there’s nothing connected to the wifi except the sling. It’s awful, don’t waste your time or money, it will just cause you aggravation. Calling the cable company tomorrow.
1/4 of the time it doesn't work 1/5
By Photo upload is a joke
It may even be half of the time, this app doesn't work. On the iPad or on the tv it has terrible service and there is basically no customer service. There have been full weeks that went by and opps we can't load this or unauthorized- which makes no sense bc you only get the channels you paid for. They won't do anything to fix or compensate you either.
Getting worse 1/5
App has gotten so SLOW. Takes me forever to reach the latest episodes. Episodes are regularly listed out of order. Episodes are not accurately noting season, episode or episode titles. Please speed up the system, put episodes in correct orders and consider noting season/episode/original air dates. Also recommend listing recent episode first so I don’t have to take 5 min to get to latest episode by going to bottom of list to find current seasons and latest episodes. There is at least a 2 second lag time when trying to scroll past episodes. Also, I used to get local channels and now I get none. Big bummer. Do not like how Sling has declined. I’ve had for five years.
Don’t trying calling in. 🤦🏽♂️ 3/5
It’s a good system but the biggest flaw is calling in when/if you have an issue. You will for sure be on hold 20-30 minutes or more before even speaking with someone. The rating is for the service itself but the customer service portion of it.
Cloud DVR is Crap 3/5
Please please please fix this! This issue is while watching on an actual TV. You try to fast forward through the commercials but the picture scan shows you’re fast forwarding through material you’ve already watched! I’m hoping it will be better once my free Roku comes. Right now, I’m only satisfied because of the variety of channels & because it’s cheaper than paying for cable and all it’s fees.
It cuts off 4/5
It’s amazing i love it... buuuut it always cuts off 😿
Best Cable Alternative 5/5
By Madhav Manoj
Cut Comcast and moved to this, best choice ever! We were paying 100 dollars for 120+ channels while we only watched like 6 of them. To be able to watch movies, live tv, shows, and local channels for a low price of $25 bucks a month is a steal!
DESTROYS battery life when compared... 3/5
...to other streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon, Showtime, and Starz. The interface still remains the worst that I have used, and I have used Hulu.
You pick your own channels and picture quality is very good
DVR needs work... 3/5
By JustSayen it's Lame
The DVR service is dismal and unreliable. Often records a different show or misses it completely. The way it’s formatted is difficult too. Can’t tell when a new episode is recorded unless you open the list and scroll. I usually have to go find the show that I knew aired and watch it on demand because the DVR service I pay extra for hasn’t done its job. Adding original airing dates would be helpful too since it will often be marked as new & its the episode from last week.
