So, will SlingTV servers be slammed with so many presumably taking advantage of this 18 hour free offer? If things get overloaed and slowed down, it will be a very bad demonstration of SlingTV as people will conclude that it is always low performing streams every day. I shall tune in to see for myself.

I'm sure you can bet they are counting on the influx of users

I watched a bit of the football game on ESPN and was surprised by the quality. I thought it would look terrible on the 75" TV. While it was worse than satellite still better than I expected. Probably ok for a normal size TV

From what I understand, reading posts on Facebook, the new users only had the problem with making sure their internet speed was fast enough. I think the test was successful and I streamed CNN and had no buffering, no degradation of picture, everything looked good. ESPN looked good, too when I checked it out.
