Sling TV – a review

sling TVSo here we are – almost 3 months since I cut the cable cord in our home. Back when I started this process I had purchased an Amazon Fire Stick here for my streaming device. At that time there was a deal on Sling and Amazon Fire Stick. ( that deal is currently unavailable) so I gave Sling TV a try.

Sling TV is LIVE TV – something you used to give up when you cut a cable cord and went to just streaming shows.it is owned by Dish Network.

You can stream Sling on your Amazon Fire Stick or Roku streaming device as well as on Xbox One and Nexus Player  for $20 per month!

$20 per month gets you:

ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, Food Network, A7E, History, TNT, El Rey, HGTV, IFC, Disney Channel, Polaris, Maker, TBS, Travel, adult swim, CNN, Bloomberg, H2, Cartoon Network ABC Family, Lifetime and Galavision.

That is what I have. That is a great deal!

Add HBO for just $15 per month

You can also get a Sports Extra package for an additional $5 per month that has Universal Sports Netowkr bein Sports HD, ESPNU, SEC Network and more.

There is a Kids Extra package for an additional $5 that gives you Disney Junior, Disney XD, Boomerang and  Baby TV

There is a Lifestyle Extra package also for an extra $5 per month that has the Cooking Channel, DIY, tru TB, FYI, WE and LMN

How much do we watch on Sling TV:
So almost exactly 3 months into cutting the cable cord in our home I wanted to give some feedback on Sling TV. Keep in mind that our home is just me and one 8 year old child. The college son is away most of the time.

I watch Sling most often for my favorite show The Big Bang Theory. I cannot get this show on any other streaming program for free .  The Big Bang Theory is a consistent rerun show on TBS. 99% of what I watch on Sling  TV is The Big Bang Theory. Its my thing :) What can I say? :)

I do watch an occasional Seinfeld rerun on Sling as well. I will occasionally check out The Food Network and sometimes Lifetime. I did watch a couple of movies on AMC.  I will be honest. I watched these simply because they were there. The ONLY consistent thing I watch is The Big Bang Theory. If I broke down and purchased seasons 1-8 here  I may have to reconsider keeping Sling TV.  I rarely watch it. My 8 year old never watches it.

BUT… the college son: he is a different story. He is able to watch ESPN on Sling when he comes home. He LOVES his sports so for him he goes direct to ESPN. If he was home more I would probably add a sports package.

How does Sling TV work for us?
I have had occasional buffering issues with Sling.  Sometimes it takes a while to load on the TV. Every once in a while it will just go out. It isn’t a big deal to restart it. It can just be a little annoying.

I tend to have more trouble when I try to connect to Sling on my laptop. Almost regularly I get a big red box at the top of the screen that is an error in loading. I cannot rule out my internet connection BUT it happens almost every time. Once I close it out and get back in it works fine.

I did find sling a little confusing at first to navigate. Once you figure out how to move a round the channels and to get back to the channel list it is easy :) Some channels allow you to “rewind” in a sense what was on previously on a channel. NOT all channels allow playback though.

Sometimes, if I watch a show and get out of Sling, when I reconnect Sling it takes me right back to what I was watching originally . This does this alot on TBS.  But sometimes it does NOT work. That isnt enough for me to dump Sling TV.

There have been a few times I have noticed something on a channel is restricted as in blacked out . I have noticed this on History channel . Im not sure what shows they were because of course I couldn’t see them. This does not happen very often.

Overall rating:

Overall I would give Sling a 4 out of 5. My only real issue is connection sometimes on both my TV and laptop. The other issue I notice is that I have to turn the volume up high when watching Sling . I just have to remember to turn it down when I head back to Netflix :)

I do like this as a basic option for ESPN lovers who want to cut the cable cord but cant get ESPN any other way. Hard core sports fans though wont be happy with just Sling TV. You MIGHT do ok if you add the sports package. Local Illinois hockey fans – you would MISS Chicago Blackhawks games and many Cubs/Sox games :(

Bottom line honesty: If I purchased seasons of The Big Bang Theory for myself I probably would drop Sling TV. I really do not watch much else on there and I am not sure I can justify even the small $20 fee for as little as I watch it. But that is just me and my habits. I would NOT drop Sling TV because of Sling TV . If I dropped it it would be solely based on my viewing habits

Overall Sling TV has been a great experience for me!
