requires following permissions on your android device.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

change network connectivity
Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

set an alarm
Allows the app to set an alarm in an installed alarm clock app. Some alarm clock apps may not implement this feature.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    This is horrible I am about to get rid of this. We pay to much money and it glitches, screen freezes during programs makes you watch from the beginning. The DVr disappeared for a bit now back but still there is way to many issues. Hulu is way better and never glitches or freezes. I got this app for Hulu doesn't have alot of programs on it or channels. I am seriously about to say goodbye to sling if problem isn't fixed.

    I have 2 issues. One is with the fast forward and rewind feature on a recorded show. There should be a preview of the scene, like on everything else. That way, we don't have have keep guessing where it is at, and God forbid, if we let it play, and it is a damn commercial. My other issue is when I select a channel, at times, it goes to the main Sling menu

    You started out great for a couple of months but now it buffers on my mobile phone every 2 seconds I got a new phone I have tried to download it on my new phone for 2 hours. Sling I know you're pretty reasonable to have cable but $40 it's even too much I would say 10 to $15 would be a good price for you guys this is ridiculous you don't have fast forward you don't have rewind on 99% of the program. Can't stop in the middle of your program it's ridiculous and as soon as I can I am leaving

    I don't have cable television so I very much enjoy Sling. I can watch comedy Central, cartoon Network / adult swim, the Sci-Fi channel (syfy), comet television, MTV, the news and a whole bunch of other stuff that would cost over $100 if I wanted to get all those channels with a cable network. Definitely worth the $30 a month.

    This app is disgustingly unreliable. I had Sling years ago and canceled for the same reason. I thought they'd have it together by now, but no. Popular programming like live sports will constantly freeze, and this app is the only one that I've ever had disconnect the internet for my whole phone (and it does it like 12x an hour). Now I'm getting permanent image freezing after 5 seconds every time I try to watch anything. Please don't do the free trial without making sure to cancel.

  6. T-avatar



    SORRY UNABLE TO LOAD VIDEO PLEASE TEY AGAIN LATER (6-9).This app is terrible. Read all of the bad reviews for this app. You can expect to deal with all of these things. Constant buffering. Terrible guide options and platform. Repetitious commercials that repeat over and over and over and over and over and over. Look how long these complaints of been on this thread. They could not care less about their customers.

  7. BIG JOE OUTDOORS-avatar



    Better, still buggy. This app has potential, all it need is proper budgeting. It's now Sept 26th 2020 and this sling app still sucks, it has so many problems. I don't even know where to start. I know it's not my wifi because I can stream YouTube, tubi, Disney plus with excellent video quality and no freezing or completely disconnecting, like sling does. What are these developers doing with the money they are making out of us not to mention the commercials. Improve your app stop waisting $$$$$$$!

    I wish I could give this app NO stars! Why am I paying for extra DVR space if it's not going to work. Error codes and a black screen is all I get. Customer service and the supervisor wasn't helpful at all. They couldn't provide any clear concrete answers or solutions. It's all based on when engineering can get to it. Well that sucks! The fact that you guys can't give time lines on when things will be fixed/resolved gives you a way out to not be responsible or held accountable for this.

  9. Adam Wiethoff-avatar

    Adam Wiethoff


    Like others describe, won't load at all sometimes, glitches in the middle of programming making you go back to home screen and select program again. Then watch all same commercials again before you can advance it to where you were. It's basically frustrating and inconsistent. Not too bad when it works, but no "replacement" for cable.

    I just signed up for the free trial. I logged into the app and was able to connect to chromecast to start watching. Tried to watch and it said I was logged in elsewhere. Logged out on all devices and relogged into the app. Kicked me off many times after a few seconds. Switched programs and it started to work for about 5 minutes then kicked me off again.

    Exit, Watch, repeat. Exit, Watch, repeat! Exit, Watch, repeat!! Exit, Watch, repeat!!! And on and on it goes! Your SLING TV for Android TV app HAS A PROBLEM! SLING, I really do like your service! I don't mind commercials all that much! BUT--if you can NOT fix the "buffers during commercials" and "app breaks with a black screen during commercials" problem by November 3, I will have to look for a different service provider. I am sick of the "21-20/24-11" error, and I will not try any more ineffective troubleshooting steps! PLEASE--fix the app!! SLING TV for Android TV Version 6.34.245, Player Version on a Sony Bravia TV.

    I use to love this app but now hell no!!!!!!! Buffering, slow programs, blank outs and boots out if the app!! Sucks! Don't waste the money... When I started it was 20 bucks for both packages. Now 40 bucks for no real channels. All commercials and plenty of buffering and channels unavailable. The same commercial buffering for over 15 minutes as I cooked my breakfast!

    Would give zero stars if possible, cancelled my subscription after 3 years due to the fact over the past 2 months I have been able to watch 2 hours total. Something changed and I get constant freezing of shows, audio continues but screen either freezes or goes black. Can't watch any on demand at all. What the heck am I paying for? Constant almost daily updates. I use a hard wired connection not wifi. Sling broke something in the app. Fire the devolopers or redesign the app so it works.

    Dwayne G.


    Switching from cable to Sling was the best choice I made, however the rates have gone up since I joined a few years back, bet/ the price of high speed streaming internet services & the various programs I watch on sling is about what I was paying for cable. HOWEVER, being able to watch live t.v. on the go, across multiple devices, in various random locations...etc still makes it worth it. I would still recommend it, just know that additional programs like HBO, Starz, Sports are additional cost.

    Works 3/4 of the time. Many times I have wanted to watch something I need to cast off to my TV and it doesn't always works. Very annoying because we have to then reset everything. So be aware you pay less but it's not always working.

    Virginia Murray


    Love, love , love this APP. Im definitely a slinger! I had to get rid of most of my spectrum account so I had to figure out how to get the TV shows my son and I both watch. Sling TV is perfect for both of us to find the channels we watch.

    Brian Swanson


    Sadly this app doesn't work. Today was the first time I used the DVR to record something. I go to play it and it won't load and just generates an error code and says try watching something else. No thank you I will cancel instead and switch to a service that offers a reliable DVR.

  18. Lauren Schnabel-avatar

    Lauren Schnabel


    Absolutely awful. I am not willing to pay $54+ a month for a streaming service that constantly shuts down in the middle of a show, and when I try to resume any episode, it starts me back at the beginning. I've had this for three days and I can't even use it because it hardly works. My internet connection is fine.

  19. Sl L-avatar

    I only pay for this app to watch the globo channel but lately 50% of the time I am watching commercials that are locked not allowing me to fast forward. This is a paid subscription I should not have to pay to watch advertisement. I would give it zero if I could.

  20. Ann Guarino-avatar

    Ann Guarino


    This app is awful! It buffers, it's choppy, it loses mass amounts of time. Sometimes the show is 15 minutes behind live tv. I canceled a few months ago same reason. Came back to watch election coverage & debates. Can't watch anything!

  21. Eric Hugill-avatar

    Eric Hugill


    Of the big three cord-cutting providers, FuboTV and YouTubeTV are simply much better options and it's not even close. Even with a newer phone and the most recent updates, the SlingTV app much too often gives u an error code which renders any channel unwatchable. The developers and techs who moderate and maintain the app should be ashamed of themselves

  22. Glass Diamond-avatar

    New customer and have been overall happy but recently the commercials are getting stuck in a loop and won't go forward. Therefore, I have to watch session after session after session of commercials before it plays correctly again. Not happy. I have a Samsung S20 Ultra.

    In all honestly, this is the only app I've hated in my entire life. My gf has it for her kids and it works maybe 3% of the time, especially after the last update. SlingTV is pure garbage. Both the app on Android and Windows are terrible.

    Excellent. Great source of Prime Time television. Campatibale with all my devices. Never a issue with broadcasting as well. Thank you for the dedication, time/life.You took developing this software/application. For the world to enjoy for many many years. Thank you for the service.

    The app version 6.34.255 on Sony Bravia is experiencing many issues. Stalling problems, freezing problems, app doesn't fully stop when closed, ad timer stays on screen after ads, periodic crashes, and much more. Frequently requires force stopping. Fix it.

    Horrible horrible horrible this app is pay,and u cant cancel,well atleast it wont let me for some reason it keeps taking me back to a sign up screen but I already got charged a dollar just for sighing up for something that's free for a 3 day period so I hope I get a reply cause if I get charged( and yes I read that silly agreement about charges) than theres gonna have to be some legal action cause there's quite a bit of transgressions towards this app to prove a point

    It's going well since I came back. There have been glitches but nothing like what was happening when I left. Usually fixed by checking updates for the app or my device which is usually firetv or just restarting.

  28. GARRETT S. ALSTON-avatar



    I can't watch ESPN on my other phone like i use to with Sling.I am thinking about trying another service like youtube or they have unlimited dvr. Customer service sucks and even mgr. wont issue credit . You get what you pay for..i see. Sling now charges for things that use to be included in my plan. Just telling the truth so you can be aware. 0 star if i could. If they get better, no change will be necessary. If not..adios, im ghost.Update as 23Sept.20- new app stinks, doesn't work.

    This app has a terrible streaming efficiency, overheats any cellphone in the house (OnePlus, iPhone, LG), very poor design. Netflix, Youtube TV and all others are not causing this issue.

    Really poor quality - rarely works. Light-years behind other streaming apps like Netflix or even Disney Plus. Get it together Sling. Consistent troubles with logging in and actually turning on content. Refuses to work through Google's VPN.

    The app was good until the last update, horrible, you cant go from one show to the next one it just freezes and goes away so if the show didnt end on time you miss the end. Please fix it

    Should default the guide to the all channels view, as opposed to seeing the next few shows on a channel. Adds 2 clicks everytime I want to change channels. Overall though. This is a good app.

    Their orange + blue package ad and mechanics is vague at best and even bordering deceiving. They say if you buy this, you get 3 concurrent users... but what they dont say is you can only watch the blue channels on simultaneously... not the orange channels. Please make your verbiagec clearer.

  56. Alex Wilson-avatar

    Alex Wilson


    The app is buggy at times but most of my issues are just with Sling in general. Sometimes after a commercial the screen will just go blank but the counter is still going. You can wait all you want but your show won't come back on so you have to stop it and start it again. Whats most annoying about it is that it will start the show from the beginning and you have to find where you were which means waiting for commercials to finish to see if you got to your spot then it goes blank again.

    Sling used to be awesome!! NOW - not so much. It frequently just stops, screen goes grey & says, Apologies, channels arent available at the moment. Wait a minute or so, then restart the app. I refuse to do this 4/5 times a day for a paid service. Especially when you never have to do this with other service providers. Sling will be slung right out the window..... done!!

    Oh, so frustrated. Returned to Sling after the obscene rate hikes at YouTube TV. Frequent, annoying freezing requiring backing out of the program to the guide or restarting the app in an attempt to rejoin the live program. This also happens at the end of nearly every program watched! Come on Sling, fix the glitches...please.

    You advertise 50+ channels per package. But when to click to see what channels, it's only 45. But what's worse is that I'm paying you extra for an extra set of channels in addition to this, and I only have 32 channels. I've tried contacting you through your chat box, which was only a robot. Then I call and wait well over an hour on hold with NO answer! Y'all are a joke and a scam! I WILL be canceling my service. And I'll make sure to NEVER recommend this service!

    This app isn't allowing me to play anything. I have a great Samsung Galaxy s10 phone and a great network and my other live video streaming apps work perfectly on my phone. But whether it's a live stream or an episode they have on demand, everytime i tap the "play" button, it'll highlight in blue for a second to indicate that i selected that option but that's all it does, it doesn't go to the show, it just stays on that same screen. This is the second time I try using this streaming service in about a month and I unsubsidized the first time after a few hours because it wouldn't play anything. I tried it again because they offered a free 3 day trial and I wanted to see if the issue was fixed but it hasn't been fixed.

    Recent changes in how commercials are handled will lead me to look for another service. Using the DVR function, I used to be able to skip all commercials. Now, the user has to play the commercials. To make matters worse, if you try to skip the commercials you end up with inconsistent playback. Pause, RR and FF stop working. You have to stop the show or close the app to correct the issue. And I don't buy the Sling doesn't have control over the required commercials. However, if this is really true, you better start dropping you prices. I've always felt the inconsistent app behavior was worth putting up w/for the service received at this price point. But now, forcing more commercials on the user and poor app behavior is making sling TV a non-starter. This just might be my first 1 star rating.

    I paid 3 months up front to get a free Air TV 2 for local channels. I now regret that as I am stuck with this service that long. Each time you scan for channels you get a different amount. I connected an external hard drive to be able to record, yet it doesn't even record all the shows I have scheduled. Searching for most shows you get "no record found". Paying extra for channels also only shows certain content I was told "they have no control over". So, if you get FX, expect about 5 shows.

    The app is just not consistent. I can never watch a program through without it going down. Frustration personified on a large scale.. AND I PAY FOR THIS!!!! Was away from the app for a few months. Came back and the two local channels I was receiving don't even come in anymore. Made several inquiries and they say they're working on it. Obviously not much has changed.

    I've had sling for a few years and at first it started great but now it just sucks. They keep showing the same commercials, I often have to delete all data because it won't open and today when I did that it won't let me log back in. You all charge way too much for all this trouble. It's too bad I can't give it 0 stars.

    This is not just the app for Sling IPTV, but in fact, over-the-air television via an AirTV device. That works fairly well most of the time. Now, you'd think, when would be the best time for over-the-air TV? Maybe when your Internet connection is down? Ya think? Nope... The app won't let you watch TV over antenna when your Internet connection is down. Argh!

    App kind of blows. It's not as intuitive as it could be. 9 out of 10 Channel streams will not allow you to pause the program to go to the toilet or get a drink of water. The channel selection is pretty mediocre IMO. The constant buffering is giving me a migraine. The price point was the attraction, and reason I bailed on YouTube TV. For the extra $20 a month anxious to return to YouTube TV at the end of this billing cycle.

    Not necessarily rating the app one start but the whole sling tv. You cant find any show through the search button but you can find it if you scroll through the guide, which is annoying. It's too expensive for such a crappy set up, netflix and cbs all access has a WAY better guide. You cant keep your place in line with episodes, so when you finish one episode you have to find the show and try to remember which episode you just watched to watch the next one. It's trash.

    Sling TV sucks! I have come back from time to time. Sling is getting worse. The DVR doesn't delete programs recorded.. Crashes. The cost does not equal any value. I can get the channels listed for free on Roku apps. Once I canceled, harassing emails and messages.

    This is the worst app. It frequently does not open, stops working, and poor connection compaired to YouTube TV on the same device in the same location. Used to be able to watch in portrait or landscape, but a recent change has made it impossible to watch in portrait. Looking to switch to a different service. I should have remembered that you get what you pay.

    Good service, useless app. Sling as a service is pretty good on my TVs (running through Xbox app). That said, this Android app is absolutely useless unless you were looking for a glorified TV Guide. I can browse the channels and even look at DVR recordings, but I cannot watch anything on the app. When I press the play button, it flashes as if it acknowledges the input, but then does nothing. Support was even more useless. They just said to reinstall the app, which didn't work (shocking).

    Very awesome! Good shows and movies at an affordable price..... Not to mention the commercials are usually short. Also if you cant find anything on the guide, the on demand is full of exciting shows and movies as well. Oh and almost forgot you can watch this anywhere as long as you download the app. I enjoy it and I know you will as well

    I've had Sling for a couple years now. I like the program options it provides, along with On Demand, recording, etc. Why I'm only giving 3 stars is because of the disorganization & carelessness to the way programs are displayed. I keep waiting for it to get better & it never does. SEVERAL On Demand programs have seasons & episodes out of order. Some episodes will be a completely different tv program randomly inserted or missing episodes. It's a scrambled mess. 8/30 Gone from bad to worse.

    Sling been working great till the most recent update. My sling on my phone (Galaxy S20) no longer plays. I press play and nothing. I can press record and it records but going back to watch said recording same problem it won't play. I'm assuming its a problem with the play button itself as everything else works fine but the play button. Its been nearly 2 weeks and honestly I'm tempted to leave cause I'm about to be charged a full month and watched ZERO shows.

    Crashes a few times a day on android tv. Yet they refuse to update the app. If set to record new programs only, it still records programs from previous years. Would be nice if you could go back and forth between antenna and streaming channels by using the "last" button on the remote, but this only works between two antenna channels or two streaming channels. Having to watch mandatory commercials that you can't fast forward through when you have time saved up is bs.

    Constantly have to close and restart app for various, reocurring issues. I used to somewhat enjoy the app because I could watch all of my favorite cable channels. Now, I am forced to watch ads on my DVR (that I pay extra for), the shows always get out of sync with the lips, the app freezes, the same ad repeats back to back to this moment, Sling won't even open or work and I keep getting an error message. I am going to uninstall Sling before I pay too much for their bad service again.

    Freezes alot! Been a subscriber for years liked it at first but now the streaming quality has gotten from ok to bad to the worst! It freezes frequently during commercials, during the programming itself, and even freezes on DVR! I have been through every trouble shooting advice there is from sling support and I measured my internet speed so the problem is not on my end. Save yourself the frustration and don't be a sucker. I am stopping my subscription and going to try other options.

    I hoped for a smooth transition from cable, but interruptions are frequent with Sling. They claim they don't control all the necessary steps to receive stable viewing and blame others for annoying buffering, blank pictures, and the need to keep the remote in your hand for re programming almost on an hourly basis. My internet provider gives me clean viewing on Amazon prime and YouTube, so the problem is Sling.

    I mean, it provides as intended so far. I'll wait until tomorrow for college football games to start to see how it goes, but if what happened during the short time I watched tonight happens tomorrow, I'm ditching sling. I mean, I'm paying you for the ability to watch live TV and sports. You mean with my paying you, I have to watch the ads on the live channels AND watch the ads you stop my shows for? Yeah... that's a big no for me....

    I really enjoy Sling. About 10 months ago my cable provider changed their channel packages so for the channels I watch I would have to spend more money. Way too much money. I did my research and Sling has about 95% of the channels I view at a great cost savings. I'm giving it 4 stars as the TV remote is a bit wierd but I can get use to it. Also, I'm not in a market to get free local channels. If they get back the NFL network I''ll give them a 5 even without local channels.

  97. Mike-avatar



    Garbage DVR. You have to pay to get 50 hours of a fake DVR (nothing is really recorded just for you). The DVR controls are garbage. You cannot specify how many episodes to record for each show or how long to keep them. The service goes down and you cannot watch any DVR material. I tried multiple devices on multiple networks.

    Love it! But base price w/o add ons should be 20$ every month(not just the first month) instead of 30$. Because once you add more channel options you end up paying cox cable prices. 50$-75$++. Also some rental prices for older movies is RIDICULOUS! $19.99 to rent an older movie...? Really? Idk maybe I don't understand all the general rules and regulations yet? But overall I enjoy this streaming app the most! It has ALOT MORE VARIETY! To me it's ALOT better than Netflix!!

    Still can't give this app more than 2 star. Deactivates in the middle of watching my programs. Unable to watch friends re-run at my leisure time despite saying its being DVR. Will deactive and give various reason, 1 of which I find ridiculous,(too many ppl log on). I turned off my cable service and went with you SLING as my now provider. I have 3 kids and a mom living in the household. Off course we might all be on watching something different. They need to FIX this.

    Have Sling for several weeks and really like it. Have all the channels that I always watched on Direct TV and more; did have to purchase Hallmark and news package but that is still cheaper than what I was paying. It would be great if they could add a back button so there wouldn't have to scroll so much. Highly recommend this program.

    Good content sucky app If your watching a show it doesn't go to the next show automatically, while casting it will sometimes stop and you have to cast again but the content that was playing still runs in the background even if you start casting again the other content still plays?? Also I use Google home and a lot of the content doesn't play when you ask google to play you just get a response telling me that service is only for premium service (which I have?) I have it linked but it's nothing

    Works fine on my pixel phone, but NEVER loads recorded or live shows on my Pixelbook Go. The app will load, but all I get is a blank black screen with a yellow spinning circle of death until the app on the Pixelbook Go shuts down on its own or asks me to either wait or close app. Which is weird, because the Pixelbook is essentially a large phone with a keyboard...

Xbox I get a message saying something is wrong with the app. I removed it and re installed and still get the same error. On my phone it gets to the app and nothing wants to play. I followed every step to try and fix issue and nothing seems to work. For what im paying for I don't get how this issue has not been resolved.

Now I've had slain the past with no issues but this time around it has not been up to satisfactory for me and I think that I shouldn't have to pay for the month which I talk to somebody in your customer service department and I wasn't supposed to pay for that.

    Love! Love! Love! Sling! My Hubby and I are "Slingers" and have been for about 4 years now. We cut the cord with cable TV and haven't looked back since! Sling should offer reasonably priced Internet Service/Access so that my Hubby and I and possibly MILLIONS of people can cut the wireless cord that the cable companies still have us hooked to for outrageously expensive Internet Service. Keep up the excellent service, PRICE & the almost à la carte channels (for what MY HUBBY AND I ENJOY WATCHING)!

I have to do this frequently until it is the appropriate time for a commercial to play

    App isn't bad for streaming live TV although the interface leaves a lot to be desired. Don't bother paying for the DVR option. It randomly pauses your video and often skips. It gets so bad that you have to back out of the video at which point it starts you over and try and find your spot again.

    On a Samsung Galaxy S10 plus Verizon variant. The app runs well however on the Samsung S10 plus there is a problem with the display being dimmed out.

    Losing another customer... We've had sling intermittently over the past couple of years and generally enjoyed our experience.

    ABSOLUTE garbage. Reducing my review to 1 star. Have their AIRtv for locals. They pushed an update which invalidated my HDD saying it's not compatible even though it's been used for 9 months. They're aware but no ETA to repair. Been a week. UNACCEPTABLE. This company overall is about sales, not service. I'm so over this POS company owned by Dish Network. They should know better. Philo is better. Tablo for locals. I'm considering legal action.

    I just signed up for Sling after dropping Google's overpriced YouTube TV. Combined with my new and crazy-inexpensive antenna for OTA channels I now have everything I need at an awesome budget-friendly price. There is one thing though that I can't figure out... how on earth can I sort my favorite channels in the guide? Even alphabetical would be helpful. It's the only thing from keeping me from rating this 5 stars.

    Unstable within the last 3 months. It's been highly unreliable and often stops in the middle of a show, movie, etc. Been a loyal customer for many years but due to the many interrupted programs and instability, I've entertained other, comparable streaming apps.
