Customer Reviews

Sling box

This app has large problems maintaining connectivity. Requires numerous restarts to get it to work. When it does, if the connection is not extremely good, the touch screen features have big delays to the point you're not sure they were transmitted creating large 'do loop' problems. Even when the screen shows a blue color showing the virtual button was pressed, that does not assure the command was sent. Big problems with this app. C'mon Sling, this isn't rocket science!!!

Craptastic

For the $300 I had to pay for the HW, charging an additional $15 for the app was a slap in the face. The fact the app can't even press enter after it types in the channel number, is a punch in the gut. Support said that it was not a bug, since you can them bring up the remote and press the little ok button to select the channel number the app entered. Total fail. Not where else can I review this thing.

If you like crashes, you'll love this app!

SlingPlayer has become a crash-prone pig of an app, bloated with unwanted features, but lacking the simple ability to stream video over a high-speed local network without constantly losing the connection. It actually makes watching TV more of a chore than a pleasure. I'm very disappointed for having spent $$ on this app.
