Re: CBS All Access

CBS is the most stodgy and old-fashioned of the OTA networks; it doesn't surprise me that they aren't willing to embrace online viewings. CBS has offered full episodes for years at cbs.com. They have CBSN here on Roku and other places. They offer CBS All Access where they have affilitate agreements...

Re: GOL TV AND BEIN SPORTS

Finally got an answer to my own question, contacted BeIN sports and simply asked if Klowd and Fubo were legit. Turns out they both have an agreement with Bein Sports to rebroadcast their channel. I went ahead and did the trial with Fubo. Was so impressed decided to keep it at $6.99 per month. If yo...

Re: Sling adds A&E, History, H2, Lifetime, and truTV

I've been using Sling TV for 6 weeks. Overall, a very good deal for my user needs. One thing I've noticed over the last couple of weeks is a lot of pixelating. It's getting more and more frequent, especially at night. I have Blast+ 105 mbps from Comcast (I speedtest several times a week and I'm alwa...

Re: Sling adds A&E, History, H2, Lifetime, and truTV

Question for fellow Sling TV users. I have Comcast Blast ( most of the time my speed does approach 108 mbps in speedtests) and use Roku 3, Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast (2 of each). No matter which streamer I use on each side of the house the PQ is terrific. But Sling TV has not been that great afte...

Re: Sling adds A&E, History, H2, Lifetime, and truTV

My guess is that the content providers are trying to avoid massive cord cutting. They want Sling subscribers to be new subscribers, not folks ditching cable/satellite. But that's just a guess.[/quote] That can't be the reason. Playstation Vue (just arrived) allows up to 3 devices at a time with many...

Re: Sling adds A&E, History, H2, Lifetime, and truTV

Is the on demand content still a joke? I'd be in at this price for all these channels, and commercials, but I'm not into appointment viewing. According to Sling on-demand is coming soon. They better hurry. Playstation Vue has that, DVR in the cloud, pause live tv and rewind out of the gate. It will...

Re: Sling adds A&E, History, H2, Lifetime, and truTV

Have we ever heard a decent excuse as to why only a single stream? I imagine that rule is costing them another 20% or more potential subscribers. At least two streams would be reasonable. My guess is that the content providers are trying to avoid massive cord cutting. They want Sling subscribers to...

Re: Sling adds A&E, History, H2, Lifetime, and truTV

Disappointed to come home and see the new world news channels are in crap-o-vision...... SD.
Really, Dish? $5 a month to watch a stream quality we can already see using most streamers. Do it right or don't bother. It's an HD world now.

The other additions are welcome. Rant over.

Re: "HBO Now"

Well cNet has stated that HBO has no plans to launch on Roku and is partnering with Apple. Of course I got that from a news report on a Roku CBS channel so who is correct? Apple is just one of the partners. There are a multitude of partners. I can't see any way HBO will bypass the top streaming box...

Re: DishWorld -> Sling International?

I'm curious as well. I've been paying for Dishworld Sports and Willow TV for Roku. I'm cancelling Dishworld now that I have Sling TV since the channels are on Sling TV. I'm wondering if Willow TV will be available at some point on Sling TV.

Re: Sling TV: Have they added AMC and other channels?

Have any of you with SlingTV tried to authenticate with your Sling/Dish id and pw to see if it unlocks episodes from Fox Nox/FX/NatGeo/History/A&E/Lifetime Roku channels? Good question...? I was subscribing to Dishworld at $10 a month for sports and now I can cancel it Just curious do you use t...

tubi tv not loading

I just added the Tubi TV channel on my Roku 3.

No matter what show I click on the show won't load. It just goes back to the main menu.

Thoughts?

Re: Sling TV: Have they added AMC and other channels?

10 days in and enjoying Sling TV. Yep, it will be much better once AMC, BBC America, BBC World, IFC, Sundance are added but for now I'm digging it. I was subscribing to Dishworld at $10 a month for sports and now I can cancel it since the channels there are part of the $5 a month sports package. A m...
