In addition, the service added support to allow access to its content on devices. With this, Sling began offering existing and prospective subscribers an upper-end tier comprising the channels featured on both Sling Orange and Blue, as well as those that are restricted to the respective tiers. My fault Sling charged my acct. Kind of kills the cable cutting dream right there. I called customer service, to kindly ask for a refund and see what may have happened.
Had to cancel due to their channel availability and dependability. I completed all of the necessary steps of cancelling online, and I had believed that everything was taken care of and cancelled. You can pause a current show and rewind all the way to the beginning. This restriction can be a real hassle for families who want to watch different shows in different rooms, for example. Why Sling chose to name its plans after colors, the world will never know. It is funny I have not received any other emails since those dates. Best for: Sling Blue is best for people who want to get more local channels.
The service is available in the United States and as of 2015. The movies are old and in poor viewing condition. This email was not received. They never cancelled my account and are stating it is because I did not provide the last four numbers of my card used. Not only that, there's no cap on the number of hours you can record. As of February 2018 , the service has 2.
However, there is a catch. All other networks in Hollywood Extra allow you to pause and rewind, provides the last seven days of content, and offers shows on demand. There are more customer friendly choices out there. They will take your money and run. The new Watch Now row has a selection of free shows, with ads.
I upgraded to the better Roku deal instead of taking the free one. Your recordings aren't deleted after a set period of time, either. Rather than asking you to sign up for an expensive package with a bunch of channels you don't want, Sling offers two basic options, and lets you build on top of that with some extremely granular offerings. These issues aren't deal breakers, but other services — and in particular — arguably handle them better. While streaming on-demand movies, fast-forwarding more than about 30 seconds or so would often cause buffering and lower resolutions.
Their insistance on keeping my money rather than ingratiating themselves to a new customer tells me that they must be on unstable ground as a company. Favorites are now contained within a single menu regardless of the number of packages or combination of subscriptions you have. Imagine you purchase a new computer, take it home, and it will not boot. I signed in again and it asked me again why I was leaving I did it again. Since I was sent the Roku stick they would not refund my prepaid 2 month subscription. If the channel is available on the service, I simply put the name of the add-on in the appropriate cell.
In April 2017, Sling began offering as an add-on pack. The service is a great idea, however, constant freezing has led me to cancel. Hulu has a useful channel-checking tool , so be sure to use that. Granted, I should have realized this was going on, but I travel extensively and did not check. Please consider summarizing the material while as needed. My account was hacked, reactivated I quit sling months ago , and I canceled within 24 hours.
Another thing to consider is how many shows you can record at once. It is also constantly losing the settings for record I have placed. As I said in my initial response to Christopher though there are better options for anything Sling offers. This is at least part of why Sony bumped Vue's price nationwide — securing those deals isn't cheap. . The channels play nearly flawlessly, and I have had only one short period where there was a problem playing the on-demand videos. I am happy about how well it works.

If it hasn't arrived in your town yet on the service of your choice, you might not have long to wait. Some even allow you to watch any show or movie that aired in the past seven days. I would also appreciate them being a bit more considerate to their potential customers.
As of late June 2018 only the Roku app for Sling supports these extras for former subscribers, but more devices will soon. You must pre-pay for two months of Sling right from the start. Who has time for that??? Many of the channels, Fox Sports channels are almost always offline and show nothing. Regardless of who called, they were hard to talk to. Eyes on are eyes on. On the Xbox One, it's impossible to access on-demand content from shows with a large number of seasons, since the interface always defaults to the season closest to the bottom of the screen.
