Anyone having issues loading Sling on Roku? I have 3 Rokus and it doesn't load on any of them. Was working fine yesterday. Today it just shows the Sling splash screen, doesn't even get into the app. Other apps like Hulu are working fine.
I can load Sling on my Android phone so only the Roku seems to have an issue with Sling.
I have checked the network, rebooted Roku and the router, uninstalled and reinstalled the Roku app but none of these has fixed the issue.
I am having the exact same problem. It just freezes on the splash screen and only triggers an Exit Sling Tv if I press the Back button on the roku remote. I never even get to the login. On the other end, all other apps in Roku are working well and I can also access Sling in my mac or iphone, so it seems the problem is only the Sling app on Roku. Any ideas on how to address this?

Thanks for the note here. Have you contacted SlingTV support yet to inquire further and ask for additional assistance with their channel (app) on the Roku platform?
We'd recommend trying to remove the SlingTV channel from the Roku home screen (go to the channel tile, press the * key and choose 'Remove channel'), restart your Roku device, then once the device restarts, go ahead and add the channel back once more.
If that isn't clearing up the issue, let me know and we can continue looking into the issue, or if need, help get you in touch with SlingTV support for further assistance.
Was this resolved? I'm having the same issue now. Have 4 roku's. 3 different models. None will launch Sling. I have removed the channel, unplugged the roku for 10 minutes, added sling back, but it still won't launch. Was working fine for 6 months then just stopped. I've also noticed the following will not launch: HBO NOW, SHOWTIME, !!ROKU CHANNEL!!, HULU, CBS ALL ACCESS, Fox News. I can launch: Netflix. Prime video, spotify, and Vudu. I have even tried putting my smartphone in hotspot mode, connecting my roku to it. Nothing changed. The same channels will, and won't launch.

Seems after my Roku Ultra decided to update itself, these are the steps I took to get it working. 1. Remove channels in question. 2. Reboot Roku and internet router 3. Reload channel(s) After this it was working ok, but the video was behind the audio. I then pushed the “B” button at the bottom of the remote and it straightened itself out. I have no idea what that button has to do with, but it made it work. Lol Hope this helps.
I'm also having this issue. Was working fine last night, but tonight I tried to start Sling and it tried for a second to load before returning me to the home screen. It did the same for my Spectrum TV app, but other apps loaded in OK. Sling also loaded fine on the Amazon Fire Stick on my other TV.
