Current, i.e., 12:45pm, Wednesday, April 4, 2018 message at “help.sling.com”.


The HUGE Sling TV outage continues.

It has now been over 16 hours for some.

I guess I lucked out that I got one hour of remission last night from 11:05pm till around 11:45pm. I stopped watching at that time.

Sling TV is down again THIS morning (when I last checked around 11:30am).

This is crazy.

I suspect that they have been HACKED, and hacked badly. That is the only thing that would, to I, explain an outage, of this magnitude, for this long.

Now hacking does NOT always have to be to STEAL data. It can be just to cause disruption (as in this case) or to try out techniques that can be used again, on a wider basis, at a later date. Sling TV is owned By DISH. This might have been an attempt to eventually take down DISH. Just think of the consequences if that happened a few days ahead of the November 2018 mid-term elections.

This is scary.

I suspect that this is MUCH WORSE than they will ever admit.

A service cannot be down for this long …
