SlingTV experience

Signed up for the 7 day trial. I am pretty stoked because the channel lineup is exactly what I would pick if I was offered a la carte by my old provider (which happens to be Dish) Well I would have also like BBC America and FX.

Image quality is great and interface is clean and intuitive. However I noticed at peak viewing hours, the connection drops and goes into buffering quite a bit. I know it's not my connection because I have Amazon Prime video running on a different computer and it runs in full HD while Sling TV is stuttering. The drops are enough for me to shut it off. Have they miscalculated capacity when they contracted with Amazon Web Services?

Also every once in a while I get this message, and I have to restart the app because it gets stuck on "waiting" Anybody else wants to share their experience?
