    I checked the upcoming schedule on Sling over the noon hour, and discovered that the game on FS1 is not available at 7 p.m. They are showing the replay at 3 am. Crap!

    Worst case, sign up for a free trial of a different streaming service. I did that about 3 times over football season. Just don’t forget to cancel.

    Slingers got burned. What a shock.

    Sounds like a good reason to make a trip to the local watering hole tonight if you ask me

    WTF! My girlfriend and I just subscribed to sling so we could watch bball games without going to the bar every weekend! :mad: Additionally, we can't leave sling because she went to a Pac12 school, and as far as we know, they are the only one that offers the Pac12 network.

    Sling stood theirground 2 years ago when the BIG got their new TV contracts with ESPN and Fox. Fox wanted more money and Sling told them no and that their existing contract already had the BIG content and it didn't warrant an increased fee. As a Sling subscriber this blackout is a small price to pay to not give the BIG any more money. Sling also doesn't have BTN which is a plus as well...

    Sling suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks in terms of technical function alone. Only streaming service I've ever paid for where even on demand content won't reliably play.

    Vaderstreams has every game known to man plus all premium and pay-per-view channels for $15 a month. (month to month basis) It even had that lousy Longhorn Network a few weeks back.

    Sling is just barely good enough to entice people to switch from the cord, but crappy enough to push them back to dish/directv/cable and swear off streaming services all together. It is a genius business model until people give good services like PsVue, Hulu with tv, and YouTube tv a try.

    I have Direct tv Now. I have used up all the free memberships for the other companies. What I found with DTN is that they are pretty easy to get talked down. I got the $55 plan down to $40, so I'm sure you can talk them down quite a ways on the smallest plan.

    I'm sticking with Sling for now because I actually want crappy content. They are the only ones that let me set LOWER quality to save on our stupid data caps. They do black out a few games that are Big X content but it usually is a Big X game so who the heck cares. At least I know that I am not sending ANY money to F*&& Iowa.

    We'll just find a more creative solution tonight.

    I just started with Playstation Vue streaming. Has all the ESPN Channels, FS1, FS2, BTN, Lonhorn network and many more sports channels. I really like this service and am paying about $100 less a month than I was with Directv.
