Sling TV Loses ESPN, BTN, & FS1 Due to Technical Issues





Earlier today, Sling TV lost access to ESPN, BTN, and FS1 as some unknown issue took the channels off of Sling TV. FS2 and other ESPN channels are still on Sling, but right now, the service seems to be suffering an outage of these channels.

Update: the affected channels have been restored to Sling TV.

Affected customers are unable to even find these channels in their guide during this outage.

A similar outage happened earlier this year, with FS1 and other channels vanishing from the Sling TV guide for a few hours before being restored.

Sling TV customers who want to watch BTN and FS1 can download the Fox Sports app and login with their Sling TV login. To watch ESPN, they can use the ESPN app with their Sling TV login.
