If you like TV, it's hard not to smile when you take control of your TV and DVR right from your iPhone's stunning display. Flip through your local channels with the virtual remote control. Pause, fast-forward, rewind and even schedule DVR recordings. Watch video on demand and pay-per-view programs.

What's New in Version 3.7.34
•AirPlay stream to Apple TV will now stay active and uninterrupted when SlingPlayer is put into the background
•Improved Roku connection performance
•Ability to manually add Roku box via IP in settings
So far so good
You guys add the features I didn't even know I wanted. Thanks. Background Apple TV AirPlay is great!
No problems with this app except for registration issues. Ended up having to do that from the computer. They really should have a mobile site that works for registering. Otherwise, it's awesome, now I won't have to pay MLB or NHL to watch hometown sports from Chicago. Slingbox is set up at my parents house in Michigan. Minus 1 star for the lack of a decent looking user interface
Best AP I own.
I've used this ap since its inception. I can watch Oklahoma news and sports while in an airport or my family home in Scotland. I've even watched a football game while sipping wine in Paris. If you travel, this ap and a Slingbox is a must have!!!!
Great work with the update. I love the fact that airplay works in the background. That was probably one of the best features added. I was waiting for slingplayer to shutdown on my Apple TV and the new update caught me off guard. Very nice!
