    Re: this article. About the time it was written, maybe a little before or after, Sling and HBO had a parting of ways. You can’t get HBO on Sling now. I’ve been a Sling user about a year and a half now and I’m not happy with it. Thanks for the article.

    • I’m with you. I was a steady user of Sling TV. It’s aweful. They keep raising the price slowly. I have been with them for 5-6 years and the ESPN and Disney channels which are mainly watched are always buffering. It is ridiculous. I have called about it and it’s always stop and restart the app. Also, clear the cache. It makes no sense to do it for 2 channels though. The other channels don’t buffer. I’ll find an alternative soon…
