Hello @user_1d6ac9 Thank you for sharing the trouble you are having with the sling app on the Flex box. I am not showing and known issues with the app on Flex, but I don't think it is a network issue. Are other apps working correctly?

@XfinityPaula​ I believe so, but we use Sling majority of the time.  It crashes almost every time at unpredictable intervals.  TV goes dark, so we hit Menu & it returns us to the Flex main menu.  That’s why I suspect it’s a Sling vs Flex bug issue.  If you Google it you will see it is not an uncommon experience.

Hello, @user_e80c47, thank you for letting us know, have you seen a message on your TV that it's not compatible with Sling at all? We just want to rule this out as a possibility.

No, nothing like that. Every now & then we do get a pop up error code as I did this morning, saying “we’re having trouble with this app” then it automatically returns me to Flex Home menu.

Literally an everyday occurrence.  Again this morning, as yesterday morning, in Sling and recd pop up that there was Sling Commercial Break.  A few seconds later, error msg with code, black screen.  Pressed Home & Flex menu appears.

I can certainly see why that would quickly become old and frustrating. Have you already tried to uninstall the app? Reinstalling can sometimes correct anything that may have not been properly updated.
