Was a 5 star, now onscreen remote doesn't work Prior to the release of the free version, this app worked flawlessly. Since coming back online after the free version, my onscreen remote doesn't work. Nothing happens when I click "ok" to start viewing TV or my DVR. It is also 'fixed' on the left side of the screen, where I know it will block most of the menu, whereas I used to be able to move it around to where I wanted it on the screen. The same problem exists on the free version, by the way. Please fix what didn't use to be broken!
Working again Fixed it appears
Paid version no longer works Sling released a free version for all devices which has commercials. Now the paid version does not work! Will not even load. Is it possible that Sling Media is trying to force people to use the free version to boost their ad numbers? If so they are setting them self up for a class action law suit. We paid for this app and at premium to other apps I may add. Please fix the paid version of this app!
Works great. Feature requests... Works well with Xperia z2 tablet. One option I would like changed is allowing the 1024 kbps quality limit to apply when on WiFi (not just over cellular) for those that tether their device to a mobile hotspot and still need to worry about data limits. Also an even lower bit rate limit would be nice too. Please move remote back to right side of screen.
Appears to be working again. 7/28/15: Working again. Rerated from 1 star to 4 stars (-1 star penalty for the popup requesting a 5 star rating). 7/27/15: Doesn't work. I'd rather pay $15 for the old working version of this app without ads than switch to the crappy free version.
Now broken... This app won't work on either of my tablets anymore... I had to load the phone app onto my tablets to use my sling. A Toshiba excite on v4.2 and Samsung TabS on 5.02. I wonder if Sling is trying to force the paid no commercial people over to the free version that forces commercials...
