Agreed. This is only "new" if the giveaways are the 2017 versions that just came out.

This is not new. Sling was giving free Roku Stick one year back and $50 Roku 3, 2 years back based on if we did 2-3 months.

When I decided to "cut the cord" in June, Sling did NOT offer the Roku Stick *only* the Roku Express & the Roku Premiere for $50. Up until just recently they offered the Stick & now I see they changed back to the Express but added the Ultra instead of the Premiere.

They are also offering a Winegard FlatWave Indoor Amplified Antenna when you prepay two months of Sling TV - which is a pretty nice offer, I think that sells for $60-70. I know it was too pricey for me & I went with a refurbished Mohu. I bought 3 antennas 2 cheap & the Mohu & I don't see a difference in the picture quality, they are all very good. Is the Winegard worth the upgrade?

How much of that matters if they're still not upgrading their servers enough to handle increasing traffic - especially during major events?

I didn't know the Ultra was an option but I think they are going to have to lower that to 2 months if the new Ultra is indeed priced regularly at $99.99 (unless that is just a promotional price that Roku intends to run from now through the holidays - it wasn't clear from the articles I read whether they then intend to raise the price up after the holidays).

Also with Walmart clearancing' the Ultras out for $64.99 this also seems high $50 + 3 months service (although that is very YMMV and getting more so by the day).
