  1. None of these problems match mine. My issue is that HLN is glitching up. And these glitches are making me extremely very grouchy.

  2. sling live works on all but one TV, roku device. It was fine until a month ago. I have no issues on the other TV or the PC. It is just no live on certain channels.

  3. My email address was canceled and I had to setup a new one, and now I can’t log in to sling and if I try it does not the new email address and says my email address is not valid, therefore it does not recognize me but am still paying for the service. How do I change my email address when my old email that was used is not a valid address anymore.
