Healthcare.gov, though 1,000 times better than it was in 2012, STILL HAS ISSUES.

Today, last day of open enrollment for 2016 IT is stalled — with this PARKING PAGE — unable to cope with the traffic. I guess it is better than what it did in 2012 in such situations — crash.

There are OTHER issues.

It cannot reconcile and determine that you already have completed your application and are all set.

I am getting, at a minimum, 4 e-mails and 1 phone call a day saying that I should apply for insurance WHEN in reality I am ALL DONE — and have even paid my first month premium.

Just a heads up.

Enjoy.

willowoakengbannerBasically any of the popular (in-demand) matches, especially Pakistan v. England, that are more than 48 hours old, can have playback issues — typically load errors or choppiness.

Sling now knows about it and were able to reproduce the problem for Days 3, 4 & 5 of the Pak. v. Eng. 1st Test. So that is good. They are looking into it.

In the meantime the easiest workaround. Just watch matches being shown in the last 48 hours. So, today is Monday, and as such anything as of Saturday noon should be good. Where you will run into problems is if you want to watch a popular match being shown on say Wednesday or Tuesday. Got that.

I will keep you posted.


I Cancelled Sling TV Account. Support Clueless. Shame.

The problems, as I pointed out a few days ago, are with Willow TV.

But, I get Willow via Sling TV. So I have to deal with Sling TV.

I can’t watch most of the cricket matches I want to watch: Bangladesh vs. India series and Sri Lanka vs. Pakistan.

60% of the cricket programs WILL NOT LOAD.

I kid you not. I get SERVER-side errors. Probably a capacity issue on the servers. 

The Sling TV reps. are even too dumb to find my account let alone talk about a solution.

So I cancelled the entire damn $10/month Sling TV account.

Yes, there is plenty of cricket, FOR FREE, on ESPN.

Sling TV, when it was DishWorld, was EXCELLENT. Outstanding. Now they suck.

They had a great call center in Montreal, Canada.

Now the reps. can barely speak English!

Do NOT subscribe to Sling TV.

Up until a couple of weeks ago it was FINE — it was GOOD — and I watched it at least for an hour each days.

But then it went downhill rapidly.

Currently it is UNUSABLE on Sling TV via a Roku!

I kid you not.

60% of the cricket programs WILL NOT LOAD.

It is said to be a CRICKET channel but 50% of the content now is bloody field hockey! I did NOT pay to get field hockey. I paid for cricket.

The electronic program guide (EPG) — which tells you what each program is SUPPOSED to be — has no bearing to the actual program. It is fictional B.S.

I have asked for my money back from Sling TV.

Typical. They can’t manage to keep a good thing going.

Do NOT signup for Willow. You will get duped.
