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)

Why is this getting worse?

Now this thing really sucks. On an Ethernet connection 1GB with the sling box on the same switch and I cant seem to get this stupid thing to work on any windows 10 device. Hard wired or wifi. This is just horrible. This was when I started using Windows 8 This first step is great. The controls are easy, the connection to my boxes are fast, and I can snap and work. I just love it. Its about time guys, and it is great. Now I get to toss that useless iPad.

A workaround is needed to make this work

Like others, this worked for me at first then stopped working. When started it brings up the guide and I hear audio from the live TV, but switching to live TV doesn't work. However, I found a workaround. After starting this app on my PC, I start the app on my Android phone. It tells me another user is connected, so I force a disconnect of my PC, which starts playing TV on the phone. Then I go to my PC and force a disconnect of the phone, and TV starts playing on this app on my PC. Very convoluted, but it works. Sling, please fix this app ASAP!

Sling Media gets it wrong again!

This company is clueless about user experience. This app is just as bad as what they've done for Android and web clients. It's nearly impossible for me to figure out a way to immediately display my DVR without that gallery of shows popping up first.

Fire whomever wrote this app. It is terribly slow. You could never schedule a program and it doesn't open right into the TV or DVR but a list of programs that might be on at that time. WHO CARES. It was bad enough on the stand alone desk top that you put in ads but at least it works and has a tiny bit of speed. This APP has to be used after loading Windows ten as the old app will not work on some computers. Every app for the Slingplayer is sloppy work. If I did not have three of them I would find another way to stream and they do exist and especially now with cable companies allowing you access to your DVR through their websites. Who will want a slingbox if you don't fix these apps or go back to the direct access to the box that did exist a year ago....... You will regret this app if you download it.

Doesn't work on windows 10.

No information on what the problem is. Just says it can't connect. Worked one time for a couple of hours, then broke. Have reinstalled twice.

Terrible app, should be better...

Love my SlingPlayer but this apps is a disappointment, especially for as 'late' as it was coming. It works, barely, just not very gracefully.
