Sling used to be an awesome tech. Lately though, It has fallen apart. I would not recommend this to anyone. I have three programs on my computer and two on my phone to use their system. And I still cannot accomplish anything. If you have to add another box to your account,, forget it. Give up, drive to what ever TV you are trying to watch, and throw the sling in the trash. Trust me (as someone who has over 30 boxes on their different accounts) it will save you massive amounts of frustration. Sling, whatever you have changed as far as management and programmers in the last year, go back to what you had. This system is trash. Oh! and the ads! There's ads everywhere! Terrible, just terrible!
What more can you ask for. Streams well, looks good, great features and now that they've added the guide along with photo and media streaming one is left wondering can it get any better? Don't hesitate to buy it is the real deal! UPDATE ..... I loved it before. I was excited to receive my S7 Edge and couldn't wait to view my Slingbox on this screen only to be so disappointed. It constantly flickers green. The sad part is I bought this app even before they reduced the price. So I reduced the stars from 5 to 1 please fix this.
Any way to scroll through my DirecTV playlist faster? It's extremely slow. When streaming to my phone and a call comes in the app does not automatically pick up where it left off. I have to manually reconnect. Not a fan of this feature. Channel selection in the guide does not appear to be working. When selecting a channel nothing happens. Any plans to deploy a slingplayer channel for Roku like the one for fire TV so that a mobile device is not required to stream live TV?
Freezes EVERY TIME! I've been using slingbox for years and it's been great - until now! It crashed EVERY SINGLE TIME within a minute on Android. I know that others have the same issue. Sling acts dumb like there is nothing wrong. There is something wrong. This app is useless.
No Longer a Solid App Rich with features, all of which are helpful. Set up is intuitive and easy to use. My only criticism is that $14.99 is a bit steep for a steaming app. I have to say, if I had not already bought the hardware , I might have thought twice about the whole endeavor. EDIT: Got new xfinity cable box, app says connected video signal not supported. WTF!!! Still using component connection!
Good app. Works most of the time. It would get 5 stars if it worked with Android multi-window, so I can watch and text at the same time. If YouTube can do this, Slingplayer should too. Overall, Slingbox is a GREAT idea that should be supported. Very pleased with the box/app overall.
