SLING Reviews : Live TV, Shows, Movies & Chromecast

 Alex Kuzmin. June 12, 2021. Thumbs : 10. Review : Absolutely horrible application. When I am trying to stream the video via Chromecast it keeps telling me that this video is being run on another device, which is not true. It offers me to stop playing it on another device, but when I click STOP nothing happens. Fix that or give me my money back!

******************

Rajesh Mathew. April 25, 2021. Thumbs : 60. Review : In a way, I have to give credit to the app. It must take a lot of effort to build such a bad experience in this day and age. Couldn't get the app on my TV to work, so tried installing this on my phone with the goal being to chromecast. Omg! Keep getting errors of different kinds, but mostly just a never ending spinner and nothing plays on the TV.

******************

Marc A. June 5, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : Downloaded locast for local channels, and now can't chromecast to TV. What's the point of having locast if you can't cast to tv from sling app. Either integrated locast to your app or offer local channels some other way through your app.

******************

Max Bradshaw. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 11. Review : I did like sling a lot. But ever since the last update whenever I am chromecasting the app will simply stop chromecasting for no apparent reason. Watching one second, off the next. It simply will not stay on and is very frustrating.

******************

A WW. June 23, 2021. Review : Ok value for basic tv, but as noted by others, app is garbage and does not consistently connect via Chromecast.

******************

Carrie Nishikawa. May 27, 2021. Review : Very happy to have Sling! Picture is great, love grid for finding programming. All good! Highly recommend!!!

******************

Danny Knestaut. May 9, 2021. Thumbs : 3. Review : The app works well on my phone, so I'll give it one start for that, but the UI is terrible, and the buffering on my Chromecast is unacceptable.

******************

Luke Rhodig. April 30, 2021. Thumbs : 1. Review : There's no button to cast the video from your phone, which makes this app useless for chromecast users

******************

Bob Savittieri. February 11, 2021. Thumbs : 38. Review : Drops channels, stops & starts, stutters, besides taking up to a minute to load the app on my Roku device. Unable to cast to TV from phone on same network using SmartCast or ChromeCast or Roku using app. All this isn't confined to a single channel, however, some "seem" to work better than others on occasions! fuboTV works much better, but cost more💰 I guess you get what you pay for says it all!

******************

Bill Barwig. March 20, 2021. Thumbs : 30. Review : Sling sells you a $99 airtv antenna saying it integrates local channels into their app (which supports chromecast). It integrates into the guide just fine but won't cast local channels to any of my tv's. After 4 tries with support I finally found out that sling's app supports chromecast but airtv doesn't so you can cast all slings channels but NOT over the air channels. What a con job.

******************

Michelle M. February 23, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : The app is terrible with Chromecast. Constant buffering during live/DVR shows and commercials. I went to Sling to save $30 from YouTube TV but at least YouTube worked well on Chromecast. Ugh. I guess you get what you pay for.

******************

Chris OBrien. February 20, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : The app buffers constantly when I cast it to Chromecast. I have high speed internet and Wi-Fi, and I'm very disappointed in the quality.

******************

Pablo Peña. February 2, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : I like that I can watch live TV and it's not as expensive as Hulu but what's up with the control like changing channels and whatnot on Chromecast and Roku? I wish it was easier to use like classic TV remote controls.

******************

Bx Estrella. February 15, 2021. Thumbs : 7. Review : I don't get it does it have chromecast support or not. It was okay in the beginning but like everything else the price goes up and the problems start.

******************

Melissa Reed. March 5, 2021. Thumbs : 1. Review : This app is so unstable and doesn't work well with Chromecast. Works fine from my laptop but that's inconvenient -- you need to get this app up to snuff.

******************

Alexander Perez. February 21, 2021. Thumbs : 3. Review : The last week I've been having so many problems with lag on Chromecast, I can't watch anything on my TV! Even with recorded material

******************

William Bragg. March 11, 2021. Thumbs : 2. Review : This app is trash. If I try to cast from my phone to Chromecast it says I have too many devices and shuts off. 🖕🏼 Subscription cancelled.

******************

DogGoneCrazy. June 19, 2021. Review : Recommended by googles Chromecast as an incentive to watch "free" tv. It requires you to sell your info to the app as any other app usually does but it has you download another app on top of this one to stream the free channels which didn't even connect to my tv it would just say it was loading. No point in getting the app when what they advertise isn't what you get.

******************

Joseph Paz. March 2, 2021. Review : great but Doesn't provide a SLING CHROMECAST ICON to some Cellphones Models??

******************

Eric Lynch. February 8, 2021. Review : I loved it in the first year of sling orange + blue with lots of streams. I downgraded to orange, where it only has one connection and I am having MAJOR issues. It should allow me to pick my channel and transfer the stream to chromecast. But the app is so dumb, it keeps flagging the source device as occupying a stream. Some times I can fake it out, but I really should not have to go through these hoops when I am playing 100% by the rules.

******************

Saurabh Chauhan. April 7, 2021. Review : Useless service & app - severe malpractice of sneaking in default pkg for next month (no refund, prepaid BS) - app screws up resolution often, slow to start streaming - crashes or doesn't work with Chromecast. 0 star from me.
