  • Omegarml

  • iontexas

    Constant buffering, drop outs. Impossible to watch any channel without becoming frustrated. Sling probably has marginal server capacity and these issues arise during heavy usage times.

  • Sue McGee

    Down in Arkansas.

  • Sue McGee

  • KJohns869

    Stops streaming very often then buffers for a longtime. Internet speed fine, modem new, new roku. No problems with hbogo, Amazon, or Netflix.

  • Dan White

    Everytime i watch ESPN or ESPN2 lots of buffering, poor picture quality. I have requested tech information daily since Feb 27, still no response. I called this morning, they said they would run the request up the ladder, still no word. Neighbors have watched the same channel via Dish and the other Direct tv and said they did not have the problems. Why wouldn’t a subsidiary of Dish Network want to at least be somewhat professional and respond to a technica request? How about resolving the issue?

  • Esmerelda Nan

    Syntax Error – sling is crap

  • Eva Scorzelli

    Channell 7 is down right now, we’ll be tight back for 15 min

  • Karla Alexander

    I have the blue plus orange packages. I am supposed to be able to watch blue channels on up to 3 devices. It’s just me and my husband. When he watches ESPN (orange channel) in the living room, I can’t watch my blue channels in another room. I receive a message saying that content is being displayed on another device.

  • Cassy

    Sling guide popping up with roku on TV but when I choose a show, it is just dark screen, not playing. I have sling blue. Won’t even play in app on iPad

  • JFM

    I’m really getting tired of paying $26/mo for this. It hardly ever works, and when it does, it’s spotty. Now it’s been completely down since July 25. Probably going to cancel if not addressed soon.

  • Iceeu2

    July 8…sling down in lower Alabama. Nothing working on either blue or orange. Makes me wonder why I’m paying $50.00 a month to watch a black screen. This is happening more and more frequently. Not sure what the problem might be, but it needs to be fixed, and soon.

  • The Older Benjamin Button

    Everything On Now is not available. I’ve tried clearing the cache and uninstalling then reinstalling the app and I still have no access. It just started this morning and worked just fine last night.

  • Ashish

    Sling App not working… getting 4-332 error code saying “you are not subscribed to any channels” and how is it possible because 2 days back my subscription got auto-renewed and I can see it in my billing history as well.
    Talking to representative is again a big cluster because they only tells you whatever written in their notes, if you face something which is out of their control, they will simply say “escalated to higher management and will reply soon”. and also, when you ask about ETA, they have simple answer : “No Idea”.
    what a big sh** Sling is having …!! someone should come up from SLING and resolve these issues of the customers.

  • Ash

    any luck ashish? my sling hindi app is not loading.

  • Shelly Smiley

    Why does it show some movies on the “on now” section but you can’t click on them to watch?

  • Mik

    In Dallas…Sling Tv continous buffering and black screen when selecting a show…any idea when this will be fixed?

    Only been able to watch one day and paying 36.00

    Going to cancel if not fixed soon

  • ron krenta

    sling tv sucks, always seems to buffer and freeze sports and popular shows

  • gfjmcginnis

    Sling TV still down. I am on the my account page of their website seriously considering canceling my account and going with HULU. I already have regular HULU and with live streaming it will be about $14 a month than I am paying now for both regular Sling and Hulu but if it works better it might be worth it.

  • Patrick Titus

    I’m based out of FL….

    This is ridicules I pay for this service to watch 1 show and I could not do that last night. I see they had no problem taking my money on the 1st. Of the month but can’t supply service. There better be big discounts in next months bill. Or we will be in court in Oklahoma.

  • Corpsman

    Chrome-only access here in New Hampshire. Every other connected device is functioning properly. Swapped out the FiveTV for the Roku and still no SlingTV.

    Hey SlingTV, spend more money on redundancy and less money on commercials.

  • Ed

    I have had this issue for a couple of weeks now(Amazon firebox, stick, and iPad…not to mention different makes of tv’s). It would occur almost by the clock. I called sling and we went through a few tech solutions but the issue prevailed. The tech then said it was an issue with my tv. When he asked what tv I had I first said Samsung and he said that brand had an issue with an update and I’d have to contact them, but when I said it was another brand he said “uh yes, that company as well”. By the way my tech was “John” in the US, uh I mean maybe India.

    It got so bad I stopped watching sling but went online to see if others were having this issue. Changing the setting of high speed did not work for me. I also tried to explain that it was mainly a few channels that had a high rate of occurrence (hallmark, taped shows, etc.) but he said it was the tv.

    Also, on another note, all of my other streaming services (HULU, prime, Netflix, YouTube etc work fine).

    I think sling either DOES NOT CARE, or can not fix the issue because so many people have started to cut the cord and there just may not be enough bandwidth.

  • George

    Sling TV is giving error message on phone app and FireTV. Sometimes it won’t come up at all. When It does come up dvr items are gone, favorite, personal add items are not listed in channel ribbons. My TV is blank ribbons. Items scheduled for recording on DVR gone. Already recorded shows gone. Blank Ribbons. Is it time for YoutubeTV? Same price with local ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox. Fix before Fear Walking Dead comes on.

    Ps. I am Serious about leaving…

  • George Feriend

    I have High-speed internet. 100mbs
