    Sling TV brings back the linear video element that other cord-cutting services lack, but could use some polish and a few more features.

    Pros

    • Likely the cheapest way to ditch cable TV and keep ESPN
    • Broad app support on phones, computers, and connected TV devices
    • Lots of options to customize your bundle

    Cons

    • Unsmooth sports, out-of-sync audio, and other performance issues add up to frustration.
    • Unwieldy TV guide with no way to bookmark favorite shows and channels
    • Many cable channels are unavailable, even as add-ons
