Sling TV / Inappropriate commercial

1-5 San Jose CA, United States Review updated:

This company (Sling TV) has an absolutely abhorrent commercial that is played over and over again through the news on channel 7 (5 p.m. - 7 p.m.) I used to watch channel 7 news every night and now I can't due to this offensive commercial. I am sure they are paying a lot for the time slot but you are losing loyal fans.

    I find that commercial equally disgusting. I sent an e-mail complaint to sling tv and told them I wouldn't even consider having anything to do with their company until they removed that obnoxious ad. How come we have to resort to seeing assaults on persons to sell a product? Whoever thought of this ad is someone with very little common sense.

    @souldr vince We find the Sling commercial that depicts "Slingers verses Swingers" very disrespectful and trashy. The revolting ad is played in the afternoon where youngsters can see it. Any company who thinks this kind of ad is okay, is not a company we would trust or want to deal with. Simple as that!

    who ever developed the slingtv commercial made a huge mistake. the ad agency has branded SLINGTV as disgusting, , vile, gross.. So now when u hear the name SLINGTV you only remember that hideous guy and you dont remember why anyone should try SLINGTV. . Tho other message is if i were to get SLINGTV I will get a revolting man in my living room. Why would i do that?

    Enough with the "The funny thing about Hannah is she skipped crawling..." and ending with the "smh" tombstone. I know that its a timely and worthwhile commercial to discourage driving and texting, but EVERY COMMERCIAL BREAK!!!?...and sometimes OVER AND OVER during the same break! And if you try switching channels, the new channel is most likely playing the same commercial too! If you switch channels to watch another show, then return to the original channel, you find that the commercial you were trying to avoid has been PAUSED BY SLING to make you finish watching!...THEN THE SAME COMMERCIAL REPLAYS AGAIN! THIS IS TORTURE!!!

    Someone needs to honestly somehow sue the company. Kids are gonna want to look this stuff up. Whenever I see it on my screen, it not only offends all the religious people I know, I can't help but wonder if the next SLINGTV commercial is going to be flat-out porn.

    The suggestive "Sling" TV commercials are getting even more obnoxious and offensive. Freedom of speech works if you are dealing with people who use good judgment in determining what it appropriate for general audiences to view, and/or have any moral backbone at all. It is becoming very obvious that the ad writers as well as the decision-makers at Sling have neither. These commercials are not fit for general viewing and should be banned.

    I find your "Slingers" commercial very disgusting, trashy, inappropriate. I would never consider doing business with you because of this commercial. How low and inconsiderate will you go?

    The sling TV commercials are highly offensive and disgusting. It is very sad that young people have to be exposed to this type of trashy idea. I won’t be using any of your services due to your lack of common decency and total lack of respect for marriage and the vows of marriage.

    I’m an open minded person and understand that companies will try to be creative when advertising their product. The first time I saw your Sling TV commercial, I was disappointed that you would choice the approach that sex sales. As a baby boomer, parent and consumer I have seen many changes in television, movies and life in general throughout the years. It’s my choice to not go to a movie should I feel it is too violent or vulgar. However, I don’t have control over what commercials the television stations choose to run. Your Sling TV commercials are offensive, distasteful and your company executives may want to rethink their marketing strategy. I was very interested in replacing my current cable provider to Sling TV until I saw your tasteless advertisements. What you thought would be funny and draw attention and customers through your commercials is right up the with the Jerry Springer show, and that should be an embarrassment.

    The Sling commercials are disgusting! They need to fire their ad agency and get someone competent to promote their product.

    Horrible Tv provider. Customer care is bad . Channels they show on the website doesn't show primary shows and sling tv doesn't have any control. Once you pay that's it, no refund and it's gone as charity.

    I love the "slinger" commercials! Mistaken impressions are the funniest form of humor, and these commercials get it just right! Anyone who thinks something like this is vulgar has clearly not lived much.
