Pretty much flawless
So first of all I just don’t write reviews. But I just had to do it because the app deserves it. It’s really good. Second I was skeptical about the services they provide. I didn’t know much. But once I found out more and signed up for it, it’s what they advertise. It is tv a la carte. I signed up for the Spanish channels and I even get an Argentinian channel I can’t get anywhere else. When it comes the app, it is flawless. It simply never crashes. Regardless of what channel I watch it always comes up without any problems. Once you choose the channel, you have to option to watch the program that’s on form the start, to start it over, or to watch it live. Once you stop watching, you can always come back to the same spot. It saves your programs so you can come back later and pick right up where you left off. You can do that with countless shows. You can also watch from a different source. If I’m watching on my phone, and stop watching, I can watch from the iPad or the Apple TV app and watch it also without any problems. Tv quality is fantastic too. You also don’t have to sing on every single time. I haven’t to sing in or log in since I first logged in months ago. This service along with the apps in the different platforms are simply seamless. It’s really one of the best, if not the best I have on all platforms. It’s literally fantastic. 10/10.
Great potential, horrible results.
The concept of sling is great. An app that allows you to watch your favorite shows live and on demand, where ever and when ever, without all the equipment, hidden fees and insane contracts that regular cable a satellite providers are know for. It's a great concept, if sling was able to deliver. They don't though. There's still many channels that sling doesn't offer, like spike and TLC. They also don't offer the big channels like CBS,NBC, ABC, Fox, etc. The on demand shows rarely work, the app usually crashes. Often times it will crash in the middle or towards the end of a show, and the only way to ever see the end is to restart it from the beginning and pray you make it to the end before it crashes again. There are symbols that you'd assume were fast forward/rewind/pause buttons, but they don't do anything when you press them. Sometimes the pause button works, but the app crashes when you try to resume. So if the app crashes 5 minutes before the end of your show, you can either restart it from the beginning, or move on with your life and never see the ending. Take my advice, spend the extra money and go with a provider like dish or direct TV. Sling may be cheaper, but it's not worth $20-$40 a month considering it barely works. Spend the extra money of a different tv provider, at least their products and services function properly and you get all the channels you want and not just a few.
Zero customer service
I had sling for a month and a half. The first two weeks it was great then it started being glitchy. One day it completely stopped functioning, the little thinking wheel just kept turning and nothing was happening. I tried everything I reset my device, my internet, rest my account downloaded the app three more times , etc etc. I called customer service they told me to do everything I’ve already done which was fine, then they tell me there must be an update on the app that they need to look into so they have to escalate the matter to the engineering department. I said ok sure thinking it will be fixed maybe later in the day or next day. I called again after 3 days still same answer. A week later I’m getting frustrated because there is no follow up on their end and the app still doesn’t work. I call to cancel and was hoping like any other professional and ethical company that cares about their customers and customer satisfaction they would compensate me but they said the couldn’t unfortunately but can remove any new charges to my account. I was appalled!!! How can you ask a customer to pay for a service that isn’t working? It wasn’t about the money it was more about the principle. Oh and that was me talking to the manager who apparently has no authority to do anything. Unprofessional and extremely disappointing!!! Will never use them ever again.
