Reviews From google play store

This is the 3rd time I've given this app a try in as many years n still there are so many problems...almost everytime I watch it either lags or an error occurs. Rarely get through an entire episode of anything. I only got it for a local news but that channel only is available once in a great while. I love the channels it has but if they dont work what is the point? I tried but I'll be canceling once again. Thought maybe the kinks had been worked out by now but I guess not. Just disappointed.

i love sling, i loved watching it on my tv until i got a new one that didn't have the app on it. So i had to get it on my phone. And when i watch it on my phone it's great! But when i try casting it, it never casts. And when my mom trys to cast it, it casts, plays the commercials then the tv goes blank. I would give this a zero if it didn't work on my phone.

I've been using Sling and my chromecast but the recent update really bothers me as it has created constant buffering problems. Prior to this, the casting was delayed. Now, it's delayed and buffering. I have a strong WiFi connection and other apps don't have this buffering problem - it must be whatever was done with the update. In any event, Sling offers a very decent service, *does* include Fox (local and sports), and works flawlessly on my phone. Please fix the casting issues!

I am having the same issues as everyone else. When it goes to a commercial my tv goes blank. I was able to talk to a representative through chat (ridiculous) the person wanted to blame my internet even though I explained to him it's only the Sling app that's doing this. Now seeing everyone else's complaints I know that it's Sling. I'm done with Sling.

This app is trash! I'm so close to canceling my account because of it. The ability Chromecast the shows is vital and it is awful. Mid show the app closes and stops casting. Upon opening the app back up, I have to start back at the beginning of the show because it won't allow me to skip forward. I'm so over this. Also, at random the video will freeze on the Chromecast yet the audio keeps going. Also ads repeat over and over. You can't skip them on DVR either and they might be the same ad twice

Terrible app. I did the trial subscription but did not continue service because the app is not user friendly, had a terrible UI, and has displays error messages all the time, & more. I have AirTV and in order to record ota shows, I have to use the Sling app for for some reason. Using AirTV with Sling is a million times worse! Bugs galore. UI doesn't refresh when episodes are deleted, constantly have to restart the app, & more. I'm getting rid of the AirTV because I'm forced to use the Sling app.

While the channel selection is great, I am getting extremely frustrated since the last app update with streaming it on my Chromecast. While it works fine on my phone and tablet, it is constantly choppy, buffering consistently, and will often freeze and/or randomly disconnect when I send it to Chromecast. I don't have this problem with any other streaming app that I send to Chromecast. I cannot continue paying $45/month for something that works only half the time. Will likely cancel soon.

You guys are terrible when it comes to several facts: when setting quality from low, medium, high, best quality there is a delay in audio to picture quality meaning the audio is not in sync with video. Also when recording episode and trying to replay said episode a week later you cant watch it. As well ive had other noted dissatisfactions, such as the fact that you cant renew a gift card when a promotion is used at the same time.

6-8 ads before program, cuts to ads every 10 minutes or less for another 5-6 ads. The same 3 or 4 ads play over and over. Ridiculous. The app goes into continuous commercial loops where the same ad plays over and over and the program doesn't play. I signed up for slimg for bravo and tlc but I'm researching other streaming options, the amount of frustration isn't worth it.

Broadcast Sling to my TV. Keeps going black or disconnecting. Broadcasted Amazon Prime 2-hour movie, Hulu for 20 mins, 15 mins on Vudu, and Netflix for 20 mins. No others lost connection or had interruption. TV download speed is 12-15 Mbps. Bottom line, channel options ok but with spotty connection, definitely not worth the $50+ I pay for the Orange, Blue with sports package. Redzone streaming is inconsistent. Cancelling after NFL season.

The navigation around the app is very poorly designed. For example: Once viewing something such as a series, there's no way to go to the next one easily, or backwards. The info about an episode is limited, even after expanding the window. I accidentally clicked something while moving my position, and there was no way to simply go back to what I was viewing a moment ago.

I have had sling tv for 4 months now and in the last month it will not stay on more than one minute at a time without the app crashing and the live stream canceling out. I have gave this almost 4 weeks for them to update or fix this issue with no resolution. Definitely would not recommend sling tv until they get the bugs worked out.

Fix the flipping app! This is friggin dumb as heck! Been well over a month now of stupid issues. I'm flipping paying yall 25 bucks a month and y'all need to figure this out and stop acting like there is no issues. Never had an issue until the beginning of November. Y'all fixed the quality since then of the stream but this cutting to black screens during commercials is effing annoying. I have to disconnect cast, reconnect, disconnect, reconnect and click watch just to get the damn thing to work!!

Normally I do not have any issues with Sling as an App, BUT the last 2 weeks have been horrible!! Even after an update a few days ago, my service seems to have a continual decline. It stops playing or streaming mid broadcast, worse on some stations over others! Sling has been wonderful for us in the last few years as a family that broke away from cable. But I really hate watching my sports or other shows and having it cut out right when it matters!! I have cross checked this with my other apps

Not having a good experience so far. It looks good but seems they are low on servers and things just do not load comparing with Spectrum TV mobile and YT. Also the mobile video is failing. if content worked consistent this might be useful. They do not have a quick swipe to view all previous recent channels to easily switch to last chans.. Update: it startes working after a restart.

Poor service , for past two months not of what is happening with the sling app but while watching TV buffering starts and can't watch the movie, as a paying customer I should not be experiencing these issues, can someone tell me what is happening or why I'm having problems, its not my wifi, I have fastest , please fix or reimburse.

Will not work on any of my Google devices. Will not work on any of my Google devices. This is an ongoing issue about three months. The sling TV app will not work on my Google slate tablet or my pixel 2. I contacted Google about the several times and it is not a problem with these devices. When I press the app icon it launches crashes and goes back to the homepage. Fairly useless if I can access it on my tablet I will have to cancel. UPDATE DTILL NOT WORKING. GOING TO CSNCEL THIS USELESS SERVICE.

Horrible. I have this app on my amazon stick and my phone. It doesn't play a next episode of anything. It always saying some type of stupid error occured. Always pausing. Never actually plays anything through to the end. I am always restarting it. I will NOT continue my service with Sling TV. To many problems to even list. Its a waste or money and time!!

Probably the worst app ever created, if you can get past all the 2-xx error you will run into 4-310 error or a myriad of other errors. I'm actually pretty shocked that in this day and age of technology an app like this even makes it to the play store.

Programs skip and buffer frequently even with good wifi. Direct ethernet to your device is the only way around it. Even if you pay for both blue and orange packages you can only watch 1 program from orange package at a time. If someone in the other room wants to watch an orange package channel it won't work. Sling also lost local fox sports channels a couple months ago but cost didn't go down. I'd recommend trying some other platform for TV.

What is this? Seriously. I wanted to watch something in particular, and on the app before I subscribed it said I could stream it on demand if I subscribed. Not only can I not do that, but the episodes I wanted to watch are not even listed. This is false advertising, I want a refund. I am contacting my bank and reporting fraud. Do not buy this.

Reliable Android App. Did I mention how reliable it is? No glitching. No buffering (whether I'm on wifi or streaming using my Verizon media package). Easy interface. Loads and runs every damn time. It never fails to work. And, for whatever reason, that's a rare quality in the modern world. Well done Sling

Deceitful charging practices. Member of another streaming service which teamed up with Sling for a sports event in summer 2019. After that sports event got over, Sling kept billing me every month without explicit communication mentioning the same. Ended up paying Sling for 4 months without ever using their service in those months.

So easy to use and the connection is always strong. It has a great selection of channels and also has the NFL Redzone which is why I decided to switch to Sling. This app blows away AT&T now which was so much slower and had connection issues.

video has improved on Android P but still dropping frames regardless of the connection speeds. App hardware acceleration still needs better optimization.The issue where it kept exiting automatically on both nvidia shield tv and mi box Android tv thankfully has been fixed with this update. 11/22/19 , chpppyness was marginally better on previous build but seem a bit worse on the latest version.

I enjoy the fact I don't pay the high cable bills and I get all my favorite channels and t.v. shows. Cutting the cord was the best thing I could have done for my home entertainment budget. I also give Sling TV. two thumbs up for giving me the ability to customize my TV channel package. I don't pay for things I don't watch or want. I get to dictate how much I pey for television by cancelling channels or adding them to the list. Thank you Sling for making TV great again!!!!!!

Connection and Streaming Issues Fixed. Be sure you are using an updated streaming device before you blame Sling. I was pulling my hair with poor picture quality and picture cutting out every 15-seconds. I was using an old Chromecast device and decided to change to FireStick HD. Boom! All my problems went away and Sling works perfect now.


Although I wanted to like Sling, their stream bandwidth is POOR for mobile. Their customer service is rude when trying to cancel, they say "Sling is a prepaid service, therefore we don't give refunds..." While Netflix and Prime have zero streaming issues on mobile - Sling has the buffering wheel of death spiral on screen constantly while watching shows. Live tv pauses. Forget Sling until they make it possible for people on mobile to stream without frustrating streaming. Please share...

Works perfectly on my phone and also while using the app on my streaming device. Depending on the package you have determines how many streams you get - that has nothing to do with the app itself. If you're experiencing issues, it's likely your internet or your device. Fire tv box, fire edition tv, and Google pixel 3 - no issues whatsoever.

Shows constantly go black during commercials while simultaneously jumping to the beginning of the show. It isn't fun watching the beginning of a show over and over with no option to resume. At the time I had over 120 Meg connect.

What is going on with the constant buffering, interruption, and black screens? It gets worse and worse every day. If this issue isn't addressed, I'll be cancelling my subscription. It's just way too aggravating to deal with.

Slingtv app is an absolute disaster. Stops to work randomly. Connected to hi speed internet but still keeps on loading. Was not able to watch any of games since last month. Switching to Fubotv. You guys should experience from the service they provide.

I tried to sign up for a FREE TRIAL. Told I wouldn't be billed until the 17th unless I cancelled and then rejected from "free trail" for insufficient funds. Why does it matter if its only a "free trial". Worthless. What a waste of time

Will not play on my Android. Updated app. It pulls everything up, but when I select a show to watch, it just spins when I hit play. It even knows exactly where I left off watching on my TV. But it won't play!

Integration with Chromecast is incredibly poor. Was expecting to be able to cast recorded content at my leisure, but I spent more time trying to get Sling to sync with Chromecast. If you're using a Chromecast, go with Hulu Live or some other service.


I went to pay to start setting everything up and could not finish and submit because there was no button for that. Then the screen started going back to the top everytime i went down to many problems had to delete the app felt like i was being hacked

I am not particularly sure why folks are giving this app low scores. It is either you are technologically challenged, your device is of poor quality or your internet provider or government are throttling your internet speed/content. My ONLY issue with Sling is that I am not able to watch it on more than one device at any given time like Netflix. Will score 5 stars when that is the case. Sling makes my on-the-move Live TV watching possible. Good app.

Was doing fine up to a about a month ago. Now anytime I stream to my Chromecast it lags. Every couple of seconds it pauses for a half second or whole second. Very annoying. Checked other streaming services and no problems.

It wont even do anything after hitting play. All it does is sit there. Why am I paying for a service I can't even use. I've got a gigabit internet connection and this is the only app that has any issues.

I am paid subscriber. I use it on my TV and off late sling has started showing ads of it's own which cannot be skipped. Users shouldn't be forced to watch ads if we are paying for the service.

I pay for sling sports and I never get the actual live games to watch. I end up watching the live games through YouTube. Don't pay for the sport package because you can't really get the live games. Use YouTube got the live games.

(re:Sling on Roku) Sling sucks. If you are suuuper patient and don't mind lots of buffering and extraordinarily slow responses to commands then Sling is for you. I keep it only because I can't afford the better ones.

This app is constantly shutting off. It maybe stays on for a minute or so. Am not sure what happened. But after this month (since I have already paid) I am cancelling!! Customer service sucks!

Since the latest update it keeps disconnecting after commercials just like everyone else is saying. I have Chromecast and Android. I will be cancelling if YOU don't fix this Sling! I wish I could rate you -5 stars! FIX IT! 😠

I love Sling TV! My only complaints are you can't set reminders, everything comes on earlier than advertising commercials and they don't have the basic cable channels (so no Kelly & Ryan, Steve Wilkos or judge/court shows) but other than that, it's a keeper. 💕💕

What ever happened to your updates now went from bad to worst can't watch a full episode without freezing screen it's very bothersome if not fixed within the next few days I will have to take my business somewhere else all I want to see is full episodes of Peppa Pig

Great on a streaming device, but on phones and tablets ... suuuuuuuucks!!!! Constant buffering even on wifi connections, and if using cellular... forget about it, drops connection every 10-15 seconds

Every so often the app shuts down and sometimes it comes back without anything needing to be done, other wise I have to fiddle with it and that pisses me off.

The app never works as it should , one tip guys, if it's a tv streaming app would be great if the play button worked and it STREAMED. I always have to use my web browser. App is only good for a dang tv guide

I like Sling or I want to like it. It glitches and freezes alot and a small orange buffering circle pops up. It blacks out altogether and forces you to exit the show. I didn't want cable, but cable didn't glitch like this and both have the same amount of commercials. The price isn't bad but for less frustration, it might be worth it to go with another option. The free trial is a good way to decide for yourself. Update: I'm canceling it. Too glitchy. I will try Philo or go back to Hulu.

It Buffers way to much. Every couple minutes the show pauses and it's annoying. After my month is up I'm getting something better. Wish I could give it 0 stars.

Streaming breaks sooo often that we wind up watching almost twice as many commercials because they restart when i have to exit and restart the show or app. What's up with that?

If you are a Christian and would loved to have Christian channels such as TBN, DAYSTAR, GOD TV, and others on your TV subscription, Sling TV is not for you because such channels are not featured in their network. This was the only reason I have to cancelled my subscription and return to Spectrum. Other than that, Sling TV makes a good economic sense.

There's always a problem!! Whenever I'm watching a program, it just cuts off or it constantly freezes up!!

Netflix will stream , Hulu will stream , YouTube tv will ? Nope !!! That smooth streaming is for chumps !!!! If you want bad casting and a worse UI this is the service for you !

Amazing app. Love what you guys are doing here. keep up the great business and low prices. Much Thanks to y'all. If you are looking for the best tv at affordable prices your search ends here. Just download the app today.

What a joke. They purposely make it hard to unsubscribe from their service. I'm going to get charged because when i go to manage my account it tells me to log in... when I'm already logged in... on their site... on the same page...

I love being able to watch my favorite shows anytime without having to subscribe to a cable service. I can even watch on my tablet or smartphone while waiting at the doctor's office.

I hate the release for the Roku 3 vs. I've called so many times to tell you it HANGS!!! I've check for updates, I connected it to a different network, I've uninstalled the program & reinstalled it. Fix the tv unresponsive control. Basically every time I call to report it they tell me that it's 7 days you'll fix it. it's still not fixed. You change a channel it'll play for 2 seconds it'll freeze or it will go back to the sling home screen. THINKING OF CANCELING!

It's an ok alternative. I don't mind the commercials or the occasional gaps during shows. They really don't last long, but there must have been a change. I can't cast to my tv anymore. A week ago I could perfectly. I have other apps I cast and they work fine. I prefer to cast to tv but watching on my phone is alright too. *update* I had to return my tv to factory settings to get it to work.

It is a great app. It shows what it say it will, even though it may crash a little at first when you start it up, but then the crashing stops.

LEFT HULU several months ago for SlingTV and have NEVER looked back! Greater DVR capabilities and I can scan through ALL commercials on almost every channel I watch! Better price for more service, couldn't be happier!

They can't seem to get it right. I was ok with the app with the only shortcoming being casting from recorded shows but I found a work around. NOW with the last update I can't cast anything without constant buffering and drop outs. The competitors are stepping up and this app keeps getting worse. I can't believe it is this difficult to build a functioning app with limited features.

Love the channels and the price. Only downside is sometimes it takes a while to buffer, or it will kick you out of a show. Would still recommend it.

Ugh! We've given Slingtv two tries, I think the most recent try has been worse than the first. We have to cancel, what's the point - we can't cast anything to our TV's! Constant problems with the app! The content is good when it works, however; the app has too many issues - its not worth the hassle or money.

I like sling very much, but lately all it does is freeze, close out the picture and go back to the home screen to go back through the process of clicking on sling again to go back to the picture and hope you don't have to start all over again. Sometimes while you are looking for something to watch and it will freeze on the channels and when that happens you have to go out of sling and start all over again, and at times it can get annoying to watch tv when this happens frequently.

Plagued with stops, buffering, and freezes. I really wanted to like this. Good selection of channels with a cable TV-like experience, but the app is just too unreliable. Their barrage of mandatory ads mixed in with the channels commercial breaks, well, break the stream. At this moment, I have a black screen with nothing more than the on screen controls and it's been over 5 minutes. If I could take pictures I'd show you. And it's same across multiple devices. Just not reliable.

Garbage. UI is difficult to navigate and live programming is shown on an alternate date/time in the future.

Sling is trash. It literally never works. If they gave this service away for free, I would still recommend not getting it. You are better off not watching whatever you want to see than attempting to use this.

Constantly freezes with chromecast and android, which is the only way to watch it with my TV. I ended up canceling.

It keeps going black frequently while watching from Samsung Note 10. Annoying. Great channel line up. Would be even better to watch uninterrupted.

Black screen several times a day at random inopportune times. App crashes at least once a day. Tech support had me uninstall/reinstall app on 3 TVs assuring me it wouldn't happen ever again and my account would now be monitored 24/7 and developers would fix. Lies, all lies. Don't waste your time with this app!

I've used Sling and this app extensively for the past year and have to say that Sling is far behind the competition. Other services I've used include YouTubeTV, Vue, Hulu, and Fubo. Of those, Sling's app is the least intuitive (at least they include a guide), streaming quality is less stable, and the app constantly has connection and buffering issues with Chromecast. The best I can say is that Sling is cheap and let's you change plans at any time. Sadly you get what you pay for...

Latest update introduced bugs 🐛 and broke the Sling app for Android, it no longer streams via WiFi nor cellular / data connection 👎 Please fix it asap. Terrible quality assurance!

Great app. Cheaper than cable. Saved me a ton of money for same channels as cable. Will be recommending to my family and friends.

I love Sling TV!!!! Affordable and I get to watch my favorite shows. So that is a huge plus for me.

Why do you charge for DVR service when most shows aren't actually recorded? We just get stuck watching on demand versions with commercials we can't fast forward through

Use to be great but now it goes black when I Chromecast. It also buffers and the quality is blurry. Problems started this month

The stream almost cant get any worse. Whether on wifi or my 4g service this app consistently drops the signal. I I got this app because I have to work lots of Sundays and thought that it would enable me to still be able to watch football games. It is absolutely not the case. Do not waste your time with this!

Just signed up for the free trial, I'm highly disappointed in the quality when trying to stream shows on my phone. The shows will stop, the screen will turn green with audio playing and it'll start back minutes ahead or behind where it orginally froze up. I was hoping I could find a second app to use in addition to my Amazon Prime TV, I'm afraid I'm going to have to keep looking because Sling TV seems too much of a hassle to watch on my phone.

What's the sense of everything working fine if it never loads up a 2nd time? I can download, install, sign in, and watch no problem. Next time I come back...all I get is the Sling logo loading screen...then after a few errors out! Hey Sling, shouldn't have to uninstall/reinstall every time I use your app.

TV service is generally fine, but the Chromecast experience is straight garbage. Stutters and cuts out randomly. Basically unusable.

Latley the app is glitchy. When I cast it to my smart tv it will skip parts or just turn off. This is only recently.

The recent update did not fair well for casting via Chromecast. It stutters quite a bit and takes a lot longer to cast.

Used to work great. Chromecast anything now pauses constantly and have to restart after commercials after screen blacks out. Needs fixing asap or will likely cancel subscription

I would give this app and Sling TV zero stars if that were an option. Sling TV decided to shut off ESPN during the Monday night football game on 11/11/19. There was still an hour left of the game. The ESPN channel was literally the only reason that I signed up for Sling TV. I will be cancelling this subscription and starting up a new one with their competitor. I wouldn't waste your money or time with Sling TV.

Sling the concept is OK. Their software is garbage. The fact that you have to use the app to setup an AirTV forces you to experience this in multiple ways. The app is unresponsive and will not connect to my AirTV. I really want to like this service, but their software makes it very challenging.

I loved this service, but the last update for my phone made this my most frustrating app! IF I am able to get the app to connect my phone and smartv, which doesn't happen often, the shows freeze every 2 minutes. Extremely disappointed. Update: this morning I was able to stream sling, and after 30 mins of near constant freezing. Tonight, there is no casting option!

It works, i guess. Caring to my tv yields terrible results. Tried to watch the football and was laggy and pixelated. Steamed through the ESPN app and was Crystal clear, but had to use the Sling login. As a provider is a cheap gateway. As an actual viewing experience, it's still just as laggy as i remember ~5-6 years ago.

Allllllways cutting in and out when watching especially on my sheild tv. Might as well not even have it, please fix issue.

I can stream YouTube fine. For some reason I cannot stream this very well. Blank screens more than not.

Gave my tv some weird virus to where it would loose wifi connection. As soon as I deleted app my tv and wifi worked perfect again. Too bad cause this app seemed cool.

First impression: just signed up yesterday. While trying to watch a replay of a Superstore episode today, it would go to a commercial block, buffer and stop. Then, when it would restart, I'd have to watch another commercial block. After 4 sets of commercials I gave up and signed out of the app! So far, not so good! Maybe U-Tube tv is better? Don't know but, might find out soon if this keeps up. Sorry.

Low price, and I get the channels I want. Love it! And I don't miss having a dish or cable!

I find the app very convenient. I can also record my programs however sometimes it is slow but actually worth the wait. I love it. I would recommend it.

Won't load. Worked for a few months, then just keeps crashing. Uninstalled and installed and still won't open.

App layout is fine. It just sucks if you are trying to watch anything. I had full signal 4G LTE. It would not okay longer than 2 to 3 minutes before the screen went black. I would have to back out, then hit "resume". It would start playing again for a short time, the the screen would go black, and have to start all over again. Yes, this services is cheaper than my Dish Network, but my dish app always played when I had good signal without interupption. This is big deal to me.

I have been paying for Sling for months. Sling is a Buzz killing Buffering nightmare of silence. If you can endure the buffering silence, it is convenient to watch certain channels while away from home via phone cheaper than others. During this painful silence at home your wife starts to remind you of un-started chores and home projects, ask about ex girlfriends, questions your masculinity, etc. Buffering silence is never good.
