    How are you liking Sling TV?

    HBO you can FF. I know this because the Xbone app likes to freeze all the time and on HBO I was at least able to FF back to where I was.

    How are you liking Sling TV?

    VOD: AMC - Not sure exactly when the episode is available, but I have been able to watch at least the next day. It keeps the past 3 episodes, anything older is not there. Xbox One App - Its bad. I get crashes when watching VOD, mostly HBO VOD. It will freeze and then not be able to recover...

    Sling TV CEO: ISPs Will Raise Rates to Try & Hurt Internet Video

    Well if you assume a bitrate of 3mbps that's about 375kBps. So doing that math thats 22.5 MB per minute, then we are at 1.35 GB per hour. So depending on the streaming quality just an hour a day would be 40GB.

    Outage?

    Yeah it was messed up on Monday. The subreddit was active about it. People we saying the customer service hold times were about an hour and when someone did get through the sling person couldn't even access their account. So Sling was totally down. Also the Xbox One app is terrible. I get...

    Sling TV may add broadcast networks but won't force you to buy them

    I would have figured that the live stream would be treated more closely to cable/sat. I could see the above example of Netflix in regards to the VOD content. But maybe it is the fact that it is online and not the nature of the content (live vs VOD).

    Sling TV may add broadcast networks but won't force you to buy them

    That is what confused me. So SlingTV has the transmission rights for A&E the channel but then there is another layer to it where the content is locked based on contracts? Has that ever been an issue with standard cable and sat transmission rights?

    ESPN sues Verizon

    From what I had read I think there are two points that ESPN has against Verizon. One, that ESPN has to be in the base package. And I am not sure on the second but I also think that ESPN2 also has to be there. Sling TV satisfies both of those requirements so its no unique at all. And I don't...

    HBO coming to Sling (Expected Launch by Saturday April 11th)

    Looks like they are adding more and more. Still some strange issues with series having just one random episode.

    HBO coming to Sling (Expected Launch by Saturday April 11th)

    On the PC App I was able to search for True Detective and it found it but didn't have any info so you couldn't select any epsidoes. They added the missing Veep episode. And they added one episode more of silicon Valley (Episode 6 to go with 2 and 3). So maybe it is a gradual thing.

    HBO coming to Sling (Expected Launch by Saturday April 11th)

    Yeah I am hoping they are in the process of getting it all on there. I have sent an email and tweeted to@slinganswers because with all the HBO content that is on there they might not even know some things are missing. I believe the Sling App itself is only stereo. But I can't be 100% sure. I...

    I will try that maybe the missing episodes can be found on search too.

    HBO coming to Sling (Expected Launch by Saturday April 11th)

    Yes I know. We have three separate products here : Sling HBO, HBO Now, HBO Go. Sling HBO is the closest to the HBO offered by cable companies (Live channel, VOD). The difference is that with most cable companies they include HBO Go with the subscription. Sling is not because they said thier...

    HBO coming to Sling (Expected Launch by Saturday April 11th)

    Search from the Roku home or Search in the Sling app? No I was scrolling through the list. Didn't see it in the Xbox One app or on Roku. I will try the search from within the Sling app. But there still seems to be a ton of things missing. Movies that I see on the HBO website as being on HBO...

    HBO coming to Sling (Expected Launch by Saturday April 11th)

    Selection is strange. Game of Thrones seems to all be there. Silion Valley there are only 2 episodes from seaosn 1 (like 2 and 3) so that is a bummer. They are missing episode 1 from Season 3 of Veep but all others are there. I hope they are still getting it all up there. Looks like True...
