"It's not the a la carte 'instant nirvana' that the blogosphere endlessly chatters on about, but it is clever, practical, and potentially highly disruptive all at the same time," wrote TDG Senior Advisor Joel Espelien in a blog post exploring Sling TV's moves after initial reviews from the media and select invited users.
