Do any of you use Sling TV?

A coworker of mine talked me into it a few weeks ago, and all the thing does is buffer and freeze up and shit when I'm trying to watch live events, such as the CFB Championship tonight.

Any of you with Sling have issues with it always buffering?

My internet is EPB fiber optics, extremely fast, so speed is not an issue.

I have my sling account linked to a communal smart TV my coworkers and I use to watch sports and shit that we'd normally miss because we're at work. we don't have wifi so I have to use the hotspot on my phone, and it holds up just fine with that. there may be a small 4-5 second delay behind live tv.. but I don't mind.

I also use it sometimes at home while on my wifi and it works great, I have zero issues with buffering.

Mine never buffers but @ 1 hour interments (Like when it changes over hours) if I'm watching something I have to back out and go back in. Little annoying but worth it IMO :)

It works fine on my computer, but it does it on my Sling App on my TV.

Wondering if it's just my TV. hmm
