    Question Does anyone use Sling? How about for WSBK?


    Looks like BeIN Sports is not on Comcast though Sling Box shows they have BeIN. Does anyone have experience with it?

    I've had sling for 2 years. There is no wsbk coverage. If you pay for the package with bein sports you'll get moto 2,3 and gp.

    That said if you are running sling on an android box you can just use kodi to watch racing.

    If it's worth anything to you, I was paying 200$ for cable and whatever the insane price they charge is to get moto gp coverage. I switched to sling and after adding dvr and a few packages I'm at 60$ a month and cut my cable bill down to internet only for 50$. So monthly I'm at 110, get racing coverage, don't have 975 channels I don't watch and don't need to deal with randomly increasing prices and getting "deals" on cable.

    It looks like they will have the prior races available for the 2019 season I'm not seeing any yet, although it's still early. Here's a clip of how sling does their programming. When you go to the channel, you can select past programming they've had. They show FIM WSBK as a program and it looks like the 2019 season races will be available to view. Normally the past programs appear under the "watch" button and you can select the race or tv episode your looking for. It doesn't look like they have prior year races though. So no 2017 or 2018 racing to view.

    Re: Does anyone use Sling? How about for WSBK?

    I've had sling for almost 2 years.....1st year, they showed MotoAmerica, WSBK. Moto GP and BSB. Last year they cut BSB. This year, so far it's WSBK and Moto GP. Great deal IMHO for the extra $5/month. I just set the DVR for 'record new episodes' and forget about it. The tough thing is GP is always live (4 hours usually for all 3 races), then they do the replays at sporadic times. Same as WSBK...so if you don't have the DVR (again, only $5/month), it can get a little frustrating trying to figure out which race is which and when it's on.

    Try Fubo TV, IMO it's a better option then Sling TV for BeIN sports

    I just checked out Fubo….it's only $2.50 more a month and you get some extra channels.....

    couple questions....the DVR - says it takes an hour post recording for it to show up...Is that a nuisance?

    Do you get Red Zone? I couldn't find it, so I am guessing no.

    This may be a good option for non-football months.

    Thanks for throwing this out there...I forgot about it. I think I went with sling just for Red Zone....

    The DVR never annoyed me because I might wait a week of two to watch a few races back to back. I think Redzone is optional, personally I found the picture to be better with Fubo than sling. The great thing with any online streaming service is you can try it for a month if it sucks you can cancel it and your done.
