ESPN Not Available On SlingTV

Jump to solution

I just re-signed up for the SlingTV app with football season starting up.  I have Sling Blue and Orange so all sports channels should be available.  ESPN is not available live although Sling continues to show multiple ESPN channels available.  I wanted to watch College football games on ESPN through Sling but they are not available.  I even did the work around by installing the ESPN app and indicating Sling as my provider.  Even with that, as soon as I choose to go to a live game, ESPN will not allow it and is asking me to sign up for $9.99 a month.  Is anyone else experiencing this issue?  Is there a solution?

According to Sling's web site, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3 are available on all of their packages. If you're not getting what you subscribe to, then contact Sling and ask why. Perhaps something is misconfigured on your account, and only Sling can address that.

I bought the ESPN+ app for $99 via ROKU.  ESPN DOES NOT WORK ON ROKU!

Hulu wants me to upgrade two tiers before I can use my ESPN app.

Nope, I am not paying Hulu more money.  I'm getting my refund from PayPal because Roku will not talk to me via the phone, answer my emails, or use their text app with the bot.

This is called a Bait and Switch and it's an illegal marketing practice used by ESPN and their parent company DISNEY.  I will cancel everything and use my local antenna before I give Disney any money.  I cancelled ESPN when I discovered they are owned by Disney.  Hulu REQUIRES you to purchase DISNEY & ESPN if you want a DVR, Fox News, or access to your local TV stations. I will cancel Hulu next and move on the Sling TV.
