Crashes Often on iOS and Web


I've had my Slingbox for about a year now. The app worked okay here and there early on but it has consistently worked terribly for the past 6-9 months. The app crashes regularly and, when it does work, the video regularly skips in and out every two seconds. I can never keep it connected to my tv via AirPlay. And while this is a review on the iOS app, it's worth noting that the web connection is just as spotty. I get the sense that the platform hasn't taken off for the company and they don't have the resources to keep optimized...or they don't care. If you're thinking about getting a Slingbox I'd recommend you look into other options. If you're like me, you might be looking for a way to get access to your home sports channels while on the road. Trust me, it's just not worth it.

Loyal customer


I have had some version of the sling player for many years and have been able to use successfully during my traveling and vacation periods. Also to be able to watch programming in my backyard during the warmer seasons. I have recommended sling box to many friends in past but in the last year I have had similar problems as others when using on devices such as iPhone and iPad Pro. Having waited for some time for the reprogramming to repair problems and not seeing any attempt in upgrades must say that unfortunately I can no longer recommending I am possibly going to remove sling box for good, (Frustrating)

Can’t connect the second time


I’ve had this app for quite some time. It seems that the app doesn’t work properly with the latest iOS. (11.2.6)

I can log in and use the app the first time and it’s fine. BUT if you try to launch it the next day, it just gets stuck in ‘looking for server’. The only solution is to remove the app from the iPad, then reinstall it. I’ve had to do this multiple times. Clearly there’s a problem here and I don’t see that they’ve paid any attention to this app for over a year. Very disappointed!
