Ratings and Reviews
Needs drastic improvements
This app works just fine for watching TV, but needs more improvements for giving the best experience as its description is calming.
I got frustrated the instability of Chromecast integration. When I operated a remote (e.g. open menu), Chromecast app crush and went back to the stand-by screen.
Also, when I operate a remote on iOS app, it refreshes the screen each time. It’s really annoying and made me frustrated when I was browsing channels.
At last, the sound quality of TV streaming is really poor. Low volume sounds (e.g. whisper voice) are often cut and avoid you to focus on TV. As you can easily imagine, it’s extremely frustrating when you are watching music channels. Slingbox streams great musics as a garbage noise.
I really wish Slingbox team uses their app by themselves, experience how their users feel and fixes poor qualities of their products as soon as possible.
Worst app version I have ever used...
I have sling box for at least last 10 years and it always been very good, until this latest version. This app is ONLY usable when you are at home and use your own wi-fi, but it still fails to load gallery. It doesn’t work ANYWHERE else!!! Sometimes it streams sound, but most of the time it doesn’t even do that. Sling box doesn’t work on laptop, either, no mater if it’s MacBook or Windows. I sent feedback them many times, but nothing has changed. Looks like these guys want me to buy another box. Problem is it will not guarantee it will work again. I do NOT recommend their app!
Not Changing With the Times
Since the iOS 13 update, the Slingbox apps are useless. Sound alone from my home TV is heard without loading of the gallery and no video. There’s no functionality with OS Catalina either, rendering computer based watching equally useless. Similar trends holding true for other platforms as well. And because I’ve got a “legacy” Pro-HD, support for even other platforms is non-existent, essentially leaving my long-used Slingbox a brick. Their website offers no help, giving the impression that they’ve moved on to their other ventures, writing off their Slingbox technology. Please not be the case and update!
