Sling App Not Accepting American Express as Form of Payment

Even though the app features AMEX as a selectable form of payment, when you enter your AMEX card number, it reads it as an invalid card.

The problem arises, because:

  1. all AMEX card numbers are only 15 digits in length
  2. the AMEX security code is 4-digits in length size

The Sling app itself, only recognizes cards numbers that are

  1. that are 16-digits in length
  2. and only recognizes security codes that are only three digits 

Thus making impossible for Gold members who pay with AMEX, to use their favorite method of pay

Hey, guys! I'm very sorry to see any issues with setting up an account on Sling TV. For assistance with that, you will want to reach out to Sling TV themselves. They will be the ones to help out with any account issues and look into why the card input won't let you put AMEX in there.

If you run into any issues installing this app, please post up a new thread detailing what you're running into so that we can look into it. Thanks for understanding! :)
