worst "improvement" ever

There is nothing to like about the new app for slingbox users. Starting the app is very obscure and counter intuitive. Sometimes nothing happens; other times one receives audio but no video, or other times vice versa; once you get both audio and video it freezes up frequently. The former setup was easy to use and very reliable. Utter disappointment.

Overall good...

For me the video quality is good (not great) and gives me full control over my DirecTV DVR. Needs some more polish (UI & UX) but nothing major to complain about for me.

Doesn't even connect anymore.

If it did work, poor and confusing design anyways. Gallery is a complete waste of time, I didn't buy a SlingBox to sort through galleries. Give your users options to customize their interface experience for goodness sake. But I digress, it doesn't even connect to my SlingBox in the first place. My mobile apps work just fine on the same network, so what gives?

You just need to learn it!

All the options are there! Including The HD resolution. Guide is easy to navigate. Swipe up from the bottom to reveal the (hidden) controls. If everyone here would just look, they will figure it out!

it could be good...

Sling tv is an ok way to get tv shows. There are some channels that are more like netflixs, you can watch previous episodes and seasons of tv shows. However, not all channels are like that. The service is around 20 bucks, which is nice for the cheaper side of things, but an antenna is free and can pick up just as many channels. Also, the ap it self has a lot of loading issues and sometimes the picture will freeeeeeszzze up!

Needs Win10 Universal App Update

I liked this app with windows 8.1 but with Windows 10, it needs the new layout format to be good.

Paying for Ad$ Ad$ and more Ad$

Sling used to be great. These days, its just forced ads ads and more ads. The only player that doesn't have ads is the Windows store app...except it doesn't work! Can't get anything to play. Menus are awful. Sling can go away. I would love an open source app that works with the hardware or some other competitor to make it work like it did back in 2004. Sad we've go backwards.

VCR quality

I have owned a Solo for years and now upgraded to a 350. Works perfect on every Android phone and tablet I own. Even playing it directly from Slingbox's website is waaay better than this piece of software. Even when I choose High Definition it only stays at standard quality no matter what channel I choose. I don't have this issue with the Android versions of this app.

It works well - s.l.o.w.l.y - but well

I have no trouble with the video once it loads, but getting to your source and/or changing *anything* is painfully slow. But once you [finally] get there, it's a great stream. Just like home. (Windows 10)

Doesn't work with Continuum on Win 10 Mobile

I have a Lumia 950 running Win 10 mobile. This would be a killer app if it worked with Continuum.
