Customer Reviews

Always works.

Won't get 5 stars because of the price. Otherwise, I simply do not understand the complaints. I made a one time purchase for iPhone. Just bought an iPad Air 2 and added it to the same Apple account and boom! The app installed automatically on the iPad with no additional fee. If Slingbox, or any other product that relies on a high speed connection and computer or other device, does not work, then the problem is the connection, device, or the user, or some combination of the the three. Let the resident geek in the family borrow it and do some troubleshooting. I have an SB100 that is still working after 10 years! Family in the Philippines have used it. Just bought the M1 and it is superb. Cutting edge products.

Well worth the money!!!

Love this product!!! Best invention ever!!! I can watch live TV or my recorded shows whenever I want to. It has given me more patients when I am in a long line and bored or waiting at the doctor's office for over an hour. Perfect also at the gym when they don't have anything good on their 5 channels. My kids get to use it at college and they don't have to go buy a TV or a cable subscription. Also, it is great when their is breaking news and I can just tune into the live news from my phone. Let's not forget being able to see a live sports game wherever you are at too. Everyone should have this!!

Was happy, now I'm sad

I wanted to give it 5 stars I really did. Everything was fine before this last update. I was even ok with it occasionally disconnecting saying to check my network connection, I would close the app and go back in and it would be fine (annoying but fine). Buuuut since this last update I can't cast to my chromecast anymore! I keep getting (2 unable to connect) error message. I just wanna cast my shows instead of having to watch them on my phone/iPad. Otherwise amazing idea. Amazing app. And not a bad deal for the price, yes even the app price ( side note no quality is lost is you use the iPhone app on your iPad. No need to pay twice.)
