Sling TV Review
Sling TV is an application that allows users to watch various TV shows with the help of the Internet. You can get access to many channels, and watch various movies, sports matches, interviews, news, and other programs live. Users can also record the live stream and watch the recording later. At the moment, more than 5 million users downloaded Sling TV the app on their devices.
Functionality – 4/5
After you start the app, you will see the “My TV” section. There you will be able to see the channels you usually watch, recorded programs, movies, and news from “continue watching” section, your favorites list, etc. “My TV” is a default page that will be shown right after starting the app.
You can search for the movie or any other tv show by tapping on the “search” section. All the sections are located on the left side of the screen, tap the “menu” icon to see them. You can also go to the “channel” section, where you will see the available channels. You can sort them into groups (my channels, sports, movies, lifestyle, kids, news, etc.) It is obvious that you cannot pause live programs while watching them, because they are being streamed. However, you can record the show and watch it later.
Design – 4/5
Sling TV design is not brilliant because sometimes it may be uncomfortable to search for movies and TV shows. But despite this fact, all the sections are sorted, and it is easy to reach them. Sling TV uses a dark theme, so it is comfortable to run the application at night time.
Usability – 4/5
The app provides users with all the promised content, but some users say that the Sling TV sometimes crashes. Nevertheless, you can easily watch any channel you wish. The app has many useful features, and all of them work great.
Cross-platform use – 4/5
You can download Sling TV for iOS and Android devices for free. You can find the app on the Google Play Market and App Store. The features are the same on both devices. The interface also has no differences.
This application has some in-app purchases. You can purchase the Sling Orange package that costs 25$. Sling Orange consists of 28 channels. Or you can buy Sling Blue for the same price. There are more than 40 channels, but many channels from the Orange package are not available. You can purchase both Orange and Blue packages for 40$ per month.
The Bottom Line
Sling TV is an app that allows users to watch various tv shows, news, and movies online. You can select any available channel and watch it live. Users can also record the stream, and watch the video later.Collapse
