Ratings and Reviews
Love this app!
I’ve been using slingbox for more than 10 years. Is it perfect? No, but it was THE BEST money I’ve ever spent. I travel internationally a lot, and never miss a show, my local news, record shows for watching in any time zone.....it gets only 4 stars as their support is not great, and there are occasions where it disconnects frequently, but benefits definitely outweigh these. If you travel, it’s a must!
Major new update - are you kidding me
DO NOT BUY A SLING BOX OR THIS APP!
After years and years there is still ZERO software development, at least for iOS. How can a video application like this not support picture-in-picture?!?! And it is impossible to speak to or communicate with anyone at the company about the appalling lack of features (or anything else for that matter). Stay away from this company.
After waiting literally years for a “major update” can they really continue to ignore picture-in-picture. I will never buy another piece of Slingbox hardware until they implement picture-in-picture.
Works great on iPad, however Roku App doesn’t work
Slingplayer works great on my iPad and airplay support on my Apple TV works fine with minor buffering issues every now and then. However, when trying to stream from my Roku TV w/ the slingplayer app installed, it wont connect nor will my slingplayer on my ipad prompt me to connect to the Roku TV. This has been a known issue for over 3 years and still no fix from the slingplayer developers. It’s really quite disappointing because had they fixed the issue it would greatly improve the user experience.
