Login Errors

Most error codes received at sign in are related to either an incorrect email address or password. Double-check the information entered and try again. 

If your information is correct and you continue seeing an error, use the search bar at the top of the page to search for the error.

Additionally, if you experience errors logging in to My Account or the SLING app on a browser, if you use a VPN or any ad-blocking software, try disabling it.

If you're using Google Chrome, try using incognito mode to log in:

  • PC: Ctrl + Shift + N 
  • Mac: Cmd + Shift + N

Loading Issues

If you’re experiencing an issue such as an unresponsive loading screen or a generic error message, try the following:

Login "Looping"

You may experience an error on an account login page where after selecting Sign In, you'll be looped back to the sign-in screen and asked for your email and password again.

If you experience this error, there are a couple things you can attempt:

  • Instead of sling.com/signin, visit sling.com/account or watch.sling.com to sign in
  • If you're using an ad blocker or VPN, try disabling these services before signing in

Otherwise, you may need to enter your login credentials multiple times before you'll be logged in to your account.
