Will your content broadcast in HD?
Sling TV will provide a high-quality television experience inside and outside of the home, anywhere a wired; Wi-Fi or mobile broadband connection is available. The service will be delivered over an IP-based content delivery system that leverages adaptive bitrate streaming technology. This allows for the highest quality streaming experience possible regardless of network quality fluctuations or location, making it virtually indistinguishable from the quality you would find on a traditional pay-tv provider's HD experience.
Can I watch Sling TV on multiple devices at the same time?
Sling TV is a single-stream service. However you can stream Sling International on up to three devices simultaneously.
Does Sling TV have Replay option available?
On few channels (like HGTV, DIY, Food Network) the service includes a 3-Day Replay feature that allows customers to watch shows that have aired in the past three days; no DVR is needed.
