Atrocious UI: Trouble with Sling and NFL and Fox broadcasts?

Chord cutter (no video plan with Verizon)
Roku Ultra
Sling Orange+Blue

Ok, except for run of the mill channels, I'm finding the Sling interface by itself confusing.

I'm also finding the myriad of NFL channels simply designed to turn me into a meth addict in order to cope.  They violate the Law of Least Surprise.  Seriously, Game Day Live that turns out to not be live?

---BUT---

I'm finding out that sometimes football games that I am NOT locked out of are simply not there when they are advertised to be.  In fact I'll have to run to the OTA (antenna) channels to prove that they are in fact there and under a national broadcast (this is no regional stuff----it's the playoffs which are always shown).

Maddening.

QUESTION: Is it possible that I have my location either not set within Sling (somehow) and Sling is set to not show "channels" tagged for region-known-only?

Seriously, I'm ready to dump Sling altogether.

ALSO: mini gripe: The search is pathetic.  I try searching for "Buccaneers" and I never get the day's game.

All apps are coded and supported by the app provider, including Sling TV.  You'll need to contact Sling to address issues with their app:

I understand that.  I'm asking the roku community on purpose.
