Hi everyone,

Thanks for the posts.

For more information about that channel's functionality, you'll want to contact Sling support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

Thanks,
Danny

Hi,

Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.

When logging into the Sling app make sure that you're using your email address linked to that account to sign in. If that isn't working, it's possible there may be an issue within the channel itself that the service provider will need to investigate. 

Try removing the Sling channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the Sling channel back once more. Does this clear up the issue you are seeing?

If you're still experiencing an issue, try checking for any system updates in Settings>System>System update>Check now. If the issue remains unresolved, I'd recommend reaching out to Sling directly to report the issue and request additional support. Many channels on the Roku platform is developed and maintained by the channel provider directly, and they'll be able to best assist. 

Please keep us posted.

Thanks,
Danny

I spent 43 minutes on the phone with Sling customer service and were unable to solve the problem. They told me that only Roku could help me, but apparently they also don't know how to solve the problem.

Same!! Sooo frustrating. I’ve “given feedback” to Roku on the channel and nothing. I need a fire stick 🙄

I’ve done all this. No help. It’s the app itself that’s the issue on the Roku end. My sling works fine everywhere else. Your “next” button doesn’t work rendering my entire tv useless

Hi, I was able to resolved the issue by unplugging all the cable, power cord and all connectors on my Roku, deleting the sling app from your channels and then re- download the sling app and I was successfully able to log into my sling app without any issues. Thought I share and hope it helps too.
