Week two for FTWD was much better, I did have two occasions where I had to restart the channel (not the app) which is still unacceptable but a vast improvement over the previous week. I'll see how...

I'm using sling on a Roku 2, 3 and Fire Stick and it has worked well for me. I haven't tried it on the XB1 yet but I'll give it a go and see if I notice any differences.

I had always heard you wanted 120hz for anything fast paced. Regardless I have a number of Samsung TV's in my house and have not been disappointed.

I picked mine up on Sunday. I never intended to get an Xbox One as I only got a PS3 a couple of years ago (mainly a PC gamer, RTS, MMO, etc). I wanted a new TV for the bedroom to replace a SD Tube TV...
