    Hi, I am trying to install Sling TV on my desktop but there seems to be an issue. Where is says it is a 20 MB download it is now at 830MB and still growing. Is this normal say for a first upload and update? what really worries me is there is no end, the of size is growing with the actual file size.

    Not normal. I tried downloading it on my laptop but I couldn't even find Sling TV when I searched for it in the App Store.

    May be a temporary bug.

    Are you on the latest build of Windows 10 and have all the Windows updates installed?

    Also, what Antivirus are you using?
