This is a fair point, for sure. For example, when I was streaming the aforementioned Warriors game last night, it cut out twice, and it was never clear why. It definitely wasn’t the internet in my home — I tested it — so I’ll blame Sling, which, overall, is a pretty poor app. When paired with Chromecast (because AirPlay isn’t an option, for some reason) it can be pretty wonky.

Obviously, few things are more annoying than a live sporting event cutting out at a pivotal moment. Baby steps…
