I have a 50Mb cable connection and a Roku 3. All other Roku apps work fine.
When you return to the Roku home screen, you get a black screen as Sling TV continues to broadcast audio for 10 seconds or more.
Can't connect to popular shows like Game of Thrones, Mad Men, or popular sports events.
Crashes or freezes if you change the channels too many times.
However. Sling TV works fine on my phone and computer. Are they ever going to fix the Roku App? How do I let the Sling TV folks know that they have some serious improvements to make or else I'm going to have to quit their app. It's not worth the money.
Then I tried to watch a baseball game on WatchESPN the next night, which is authenticated via Sling TV and it showed me authenticated through my ISP instead, which, of course, doesn't allow access to ESPN and ESPN2. I could not get it to re-authenticate through Sling TV. I finally uninstalled WatchESPN and then reinstalled it and was able to re-authenticate. I could be wrong, but I suspect it was somehow related to enabling the parental controls the night before. In any event, all seems to be working fine again now.
Click * and then select "TV" and you'll see a yellow progress bar on each channels thumbnail.
You also see that progress meter whenever you pick a station to watch.
If you are watching a live sporting event, and the progress meter reaches the end before the game is done, you get a "Something is Wrong, please try again in a few minutes" error, which only goes away if you restart the Roku, thus missing out on the sporting event.
This happened on the overtime TNT coverage of the Cavs game, happens on a lot of baseball games. It is INFURIATING because it usually happens at the END of a game.
For the love of sports, please FIX this App!!!!
