Updated 3:26 PM ET – Sling TV's support account on Twitter has started telling users that they should be able to access their programming once again by signing out of the app and then logging back in. If you've got Sling, let us know if this works for you!
If you're a Sling TV subscriber and are having trouble watching your favorite game, reality show, etc., you're not the only one who's experiencing these issues. At 7:33 PM ET last night (April 3), Sling TV's support account on Twitter said that it was aware of "streaming issues" that some users were reporting and that it was working to "resolve the issues as quickly as possible."
Sling issued another update a couple hours later saying that its teams were "still working on the previously identified issue", and this morning at 6:58 AM ET, said the following:
Update: Our teams have been working all night to resolve this issue, and we thank you for your continued patience. Please stay tuned for additional updates.Update: Our teams have been working all night to resolve this issue, and we thank you for your continued patience.

In other words, Sling TV still probably won't work if you try to watch it right now.
As a temporary fix, Sling says you should still be able to access your shows through Google Chrome by going to watch.sling.com. We'll keep an eye on this issue and update this post as we learn more.
This is unfortunate. I also find it interesting that the issue hasn't been resolved. Normally these types of issues are resolved quickly from other companies. Hopefully they figure it out soon.
Chrome doesn't support viewing Cloud DVR recordings. Their Android app is worthless with Chromecast (although they claim it's supported), so that's another strike. I've trailed Hulu and Playstation Vue and won't hesitate to switch if these "issues" become a pattern.
Directv now is working Great at the moment.
This was frustrating. I was missing some games I wanted to watch.
