What is Sling TV?

Sling TV or Sling Television is an American multichannel live TV service that is streamed over the internet. It was launched in February 2015. It is one of the cheapest TV on demand.

The service of Sling TV is available in the United States and Puerto Rico. Basically, Sling TV was not designed to substitute the traditional Television providers fully, it was just designed as a complement of online services that are subscription-based such as Amazon Video, YouTube, Netflix or just like other subscription-based online services.

But according to some people, it is a direct replacement of satellite and cable.

In Sling TV, only one stream could be used per account, it is its major limitation. Also, there is no proper functionality to pause or forward the programme which is streaming.

But it has a recording system of some selected channels for the subscribers of Sling TV.  It allows 100 hours of recording storage, or the subscribers could easily record multiple programmes of Sling TV at a time.

The good feature in this is, when you have watched the recorded programme and if the storage capacity is full, then the watched video automatically gets deleted by itself.

Its content can be streamed via several numbers of platforms such as Apple iOS, Android, Apple iOS TV, Android TV, Window Computers, Smart Televisions, Amazon Fire TV and some specified players.

Sling TV Reviews

If you want to know more about Sling TV, then you can ready these Sling TV Reviews which are given by some Users: –

By Shane Torus– *I am using Sling TV for the past 5 months with 150Mg connection. I am experiencing the best results. I am not facing any problem with it. I would like to give 4.5 stars to Sling TV*

By Jose Schantz: – *Don’t trust with their info, I am honestly giving very bad feedback to Sling TV. My experience was very bad. My account was hacked, reactivated, and then I canceled within 24 hours. But Sling TV refused to do anything and they don’t give my money back to me*

By Scott: – * Yes, Sling is a total rip off. I tried it, wouldn’t work with our internet connection. Called, cancelled, received an email telling me what to do if I wanted to continue, then was billed for it.

When I called they said I hadn’t cancelled. I forwarded their “what to do if you want it again” email to them and they said that is NOT considered a cancellation.

I had to have a CODE. Totally refused to refund my $. If I hadn’t been ill at the time I would have written to the corporate office but figure that too would be useless after seeing other views. Be Very Careful.

We hope this information is helpful to you Guys. Thank you
