Question Sling TV Opinions

Anyone with Sling TV? Opinions? Are you able to DVR shows? Do you just have to know what shows are out and watch them when you remember? Do you ever have any connectivity issues? We mostly watch Fox News, History, ESPN, MLB Network, ABC, HBO when GOTs is on, A&E and a few others.

Slingtv works great for me. I am not aware of DVR options with Slingtv. The trick is to download the Watch ESPN app and then login to the app using your Slingtv login credentials. The Watch ESPN is better built for sports in my opinion.

We just went to it a few weeks ago and like it so far. We chose the Orange+Blue package for $40 and the 4 extras deal for $10. Once football season gets here, I'll add the sports package. They do have Cloud DVR now for $5/month. You can record up to 50 hours. We haven't tried that out yet. With the Blue package, you get three streams and the Orange is one. We paid 2 months up front and got a free Roku express. We also paid for one month of Directv now and got a free firestick. I'm going to cancel the Directv now before the month is up though.

I liked psvue a lil more. I didn't get any local news with sling. I like getting more for severe weather than news though. I recommend comparing both. You can watch psvue on your roku.

I'm dumping Direct TV at the end of the month. I've looked at the psvue and sling. Do I need a playstation device to get this service?

I believe that you do not have to have a ps just a psn Id. I know you can get it on roku as I have one but I don't know about other streaming devices.

Make sure your device is compatible with PS Vue. I have a Fire TV box and some generic Android boxes. PS Vue plays great on Fire TV, it will NOT play on the Android boxes - these run a mobile Google Play Store and are not compatible. The Mi Box and Nvidia Shield are the only boxes I have seen that will work. If you can get the service, PS Vue is very nice. SETVNOW.com looks like a good service, but only is available on 3 devices at a time where PS Vue is available on 5.

I switched from sling to DirectvNow and I enjoy it. And I'm not sure if sling still has MLB Network but I know DT Now does
Only problem is with sling and DirecTv Now is my Braves games are getting blacked out.... Unless I watch it on my laptop which doesn't seem to make much sense for it to be blacked out on one device and not the other, so if anyone knows what that's about let me know lol

Default Re: Sling TV Opinions

I've had the 25$ a month sports package with sling for over a year. I'm very happy with how it's worked out. Any shows that are really well known are kept on "replay" for a period of a couple of weeks past the air date. (TWD, Better Call Saul etc...)

Download the watchespn app and sign in with your Sling credentials. The app works much better with live sports.

I also have amazon prime, hulu and Netflix. I dumped Directv over a year ago and haven't missed it one bit. I'm also saving over $100 a month and getting way more content. I highly recommend taking some of the savings and increase your internet speed to the highest bandwidth available. Otherwise everything is blurry or constantly loading. I also installed a digital antenna outside for local channels and news.

I've used Sling for two football seasons. I have antennas (21 channels) and use Sling only during FB season with the SEC add-on, $25 total. I stop Sling after the last game, and sign back on before the first game. Keeps the cost down since I don't use it for anything other than sports. This year I kept it through the women's and men's basketball runs.

Any device including a PC will run the sling app. The Orange $20, Sports $5, Combo $10 and Cloud DVR $5 = Total $40 will cover all your stated needs. Except FOX News - if you use a ROKU device or TV you can watch Fox News & Business from the day before as multiple clips and access the National Weather Channel and a lot more.
Watch ESPN app for SEC+ and other sports. Sling has a Local Now channel for local news more like a bulletin board. Digital outside antennae $50 one time brings in 30 channels of local.
