Functionality is great on winpho8. It starts the stream quick unlike the browser which plays ads before the stream starts. Super lame on that front when you spend $500+ for the box. Hope they update the app for winpho10.More
Controls, settings, and app execution are completely horrible, especially compared to this app on other platforms. There also hasn't been an update since WP8 first launched, which was still just a minor under the hood update.More
Needs an update for windows 10 mobile so the Navigation bar is removed. Other than that, it works.More
Works great no problems here. Thank you for supporting windows phoneMore
It works, but...
Needs an update for win 10 to remove the navigation bar as well as handle the aspect ratio of Lumia 950More
When it works, it works great! Wish it could turn on my DirecTV box when it is off and I am away from the house. Only feature is the "Select" button on startup, but that no longer works. Need a power the DirecTV button.More
It works but it sucks that for every key press it buffers. Makes guide navigation terrible.More
Works but what sucks is there is no way to run this app in background and just listen to audio, what's up with that?More
The app works as advertised. It connects to my Slingbox Pro without issues, however the interface is ancient. They have not updated the app in almost a year. They are missing basic things that have been on Android and iOS for quite some time (auto bandwidth detection, remembering the quality you select, support for HD picture, etc.). One year later, Sling still does the bare minimum for WP users. They just updated the app to allow use of the M1, nothing more. This app is still worth the $$, however it lags behind its counterparts in iOS and Android.More
