It is more than frustrating to deal with random errors when you were just trying to watch your favorite show on Sling TV. Problems with the Sling TV app can be a bit confusing to deal with if you are using a Firestick device. But luckily, you have this article by your side! Here are all the troubleshooting steps that can help you fix any problems with the Sling TV app on your Firestick. Take a look!
Fixes for Sling TV not working on Firestick:
Check internet connection:
Open other apps on your Firestick device. If the loading speed for the apps is reduced or if you observe similar problems as that of the Sling TV, it may be due to your internet connection. An easy and quick fix you can try is power cycling your router. Turn off your router and unplug its power cable from the wall outlet. Wait for about 30 seconds and then plug the power cable back. Turn on the router, wait for the signal strength to get stable, then connect your Firestick to the network. Try launching the Sling TV app to check if it works. If it doesn’t, try the next step.
Unplug the power cable for the Firestick device from the wall outlet. Keep it unplugged for about three minutes. As an additional step, change the HDMI slot for the Firestick device on your TV. Now plug the power cable in and turn on the Firestick. Check if this step worked by launching Sling TV on your Firestick device.
Go to Settings > My Fire TV > About > Check for system updates. If there is an update available for your Firestick device, be sure to install it right away. After installing the latest version of the OS available, launch the Sling TV app to make sure it works
Clearing the cache files for an app like the Sling TV on the Firestick device can also fix a problem or two. Go to Settings > Applications > Sling TV > Clear cache. If you want, you can go ahead and clear the entire app data by selecting “Clear data”. But then you will have to sign into your Sling TV account by adding the necessary credentials. It adds a few extra steps but makes sure that any corrupted files are completely wiped. Open the Sling TV app on your Firestick again and check if it works.
