Basically I think it has what the 2 Sling packages have together, plus network TV, for $5 less per month. Seems like a solid deal.

ETA: Unlimited Cloud DVR as well. I think this is good enough to make me switch.


That's definitely enough. I'm sold.

I will wait to hear the experience of others first but I could find myself switching to this as well.

Networks missing that I'd like: Comedy Central, AMC, HBO. Obv there's an HBO streaming option. The other two I could probably manage around without too much difficulty.

I downloaded Kodi onto my Fire Stick last night. This has potential.

I've been meaning to do that. Please report back on whether it lives up to the potential.

It looks impressive. It's a bit beyond my technological competency but there are enough walk throughs online. Basically, you download Kodi and then you have to download a program (basically like a Torrent player). Once you have that, looks to be pretty easy peasy and the picture looks solid.

I watched Jailbait :oops: In my defense, I discovered last weekend that it's no longer on Netflix.

Exodus is the video player that does all the heavy lifting. In the Television section, there's an option that will get you into a menu tree that has every show sorted by Network/Show Name/Season.

Yes, Exodus is the one I downloaded, couldn't recall the name of it. TY.

So my cord cutting works well 95% of the time (Sling has really upped their game in the last few months, I haven't had an issue with it in forever). However, the 1 time of year that I do is right now. We have a lot of trees behind our house. When there are not leaves on the trees, I can get every single broadcast channel crystal clear, no skipping, no issues. When there are leaves on the trees, I can get every channel just fine with no issues...except ABC. Which carries the Finals. Now, it appears that I can get the Finals on ESPN 3 and stream it through Sling. It is at least listed as an available option. I've never tried it before, but presumably it works. Anyone by chance happen to know?

Put the WatchESPN app on your fire stick/Roku/whatever and watch on that. Get a friend's Cable/satellite log in info to view live content.

i was in great shape until the stanley cup finals, where my wife has suddenly developed a deep connection with the predators because she likes the city and Carrie Underwood's husband plays for the team. Game 2 was on NBCSN, which i do not currently have a way to access because i've never wanted to access it. Luckily she forgot about how much she loved the predz by about 8:15 and we watched something else.

Update: WatchESPN app worked great with my Sling log in. Watched on my iPad, didn't even bother with the big TV.

I think I'm gonna dump cable when I move. Has anyone tried both Sling TV and Playstation Vue and have any thoughts on which is better? I'm leaning towards PS Vue based on the initial research I've done. The DVR option seems like a good selling point, and from what I gather you can't do that with Sling unless you buy extra hardware and pay a monthly fee. I also like that NESN is included in the $45 package, and it doesn't appear to be available on Sling at all.

I see PS Vue has regular networks included, too. Are those the local feed? In other words, can I get all my network and cable stuff through one place, rather than having to use an OTA antenna for local news and stuff and then fire up the Vue to watch cable? That seems like a huge bonus to be able to get all channels through a single source.

I've had Sling for about 2 years now and love it. I just recently switched over to the Orange package from the Blue and will watch the ESPN networks (since they're not included in the Orange package) via the Watch ESPN app.

I can't speak to the PS Vue part of the post since I don't have a PS console--I use an antenna for local channels.
