With Scumcast now gone, I started looking at Sling TV for my wife. I was in the process of signing up for a 7 day trial, when I realized something.
This is in no way, shape, or form “al la carte.” In order to get my wife Food Network, I have to pay $20 a month for several ESPN, Disney (Yes, I know Disney owns ESPN), and Fake News Networks that I’ll never watch.
Forget it. This isn’t “al la carte.” This is the same bundling bullshit Scumcast does, but in a lower price range.
Sling, when I can get Food Network, Spike, and whatever channel airs “Air Crash Investigations” (because I can’t find new ones on YouTube anymore), I’ll sign up. I’m not paying you for the same networks I paid Scumcast for that I’ll never watch.
I signed out and closed the browser tab before I got to input my credit card. I’m not doing it.
