    I am about to switch to ATT fiber. No data cap and they actively market streaming HD content.

    Also. Sling has a delay. So if you visit forums during your sports game, you will be behind lol.

    Cable delivering HD content is about 10 or 12 seconds behind realtime.

    That's your regular TV provider. Sling seems like 45 secs or so.

    Any stream has a delay. Even HD has a delay from standard def although it’s only a few seconds
