  1. Google's Android

    This would be great for the new Google phone, Android (T-Mobile G1). Can you support the open source Linux platform? This phone will really give the IPHONE competition

    • Android Support

      Really Sling? 1st WiFi only iPhone player (ATT is probably most responsible) and then you deleted the request for Android support?

      • Offer Slingplayer mobile for the new Verizon Wireless Android Phone. This phone will be big.

        Verizon has the new Android phone debuting in November in time for the holidays. This phone is Verizon's answer to the iPhone. For those of us with Slingbox, it will be great if an app is developed to make the new verizon Android phone compatable with Slingbox.

          • Support for S60 v5

            Slingbox should support Symbian 60 version5 devices such as Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. It shouldn't be much coding change from the S60 v3 that is currently out.

            • Sony PS3 / PSP Support

              Add support to allow the PS3 / PSP to work with this new site.

              Remote View + Slingbox support would be an awesome edition. With 16+ million PS3s sold worldwide and several million PSPs it'd be great to have this additional support for these devices.

                  The SlingPlayer Mobile software is currently available for Windows Mobile, Palm OS, or Symbian cell phones and PDAs.

                  We do have plans to support the iPhone with our SlingPlayer Mobile software for the Slingbox. We are currently in the developer program and are actively developing the client. It’s a very high priority.

                  We are also working on a BlackBerry version of our software, which is also a very high priority.

                  At this time we do not have plans for a client for the Instinct.

                • Update Mac SlingPlayer

                  Currently, the Mac SlingPlayer is lacking behind the Windows version. The Windows version has buffering, a TV Guide and Sling accounts. The Mac version is lacking all of these features that I, and undoubtedly all other Mac users, are craving too! Is this being worked on at all, or is there a beta that I can sign up for?

                  Show us Mac users some love!

                  Thanks in advance for any help/response I receive.

                      • More Finger Friendly on WM

                        Would be great if Sling Player Mobile could be made more finger friendly on Windows Mobile. I'm sure it will be on the iPhone so why not on WM

                        • Slingplayer on Symbian S60 5th edition (Nokia 5800 XM).

                          I have a Slingbox, and a Nokia 5800 XM. It has the ideal display fo watching TV on, but there is no Slingplayer available for this phone. It seems that Sling Media aren't quite with the times on the latest and most popular handsets available.

                          I would gladly purchase SlingPlayer Mobile if there was a version for this handset, but the current version (for the N95) doesn't support the touch controls of the 5800.

                          Myself and a lot of other 5800 owners (and there ar a lot of them, it has out-sold the iPhone so far this year). Would love…

                          • Full Screen on Touch HD 800x640

                            Would be great to get full screen video for High Resolution Devices such as the HTC Touch HD. Which run at 800x640, I am not saying the video has to be this resolution as we have bandwith to consider but at the moment I get big black area's on the left and right of my screen. Just want it to be Fullscreen!

                                • EPG / Now & Next Info for Freeview on Windows Mobile

                                  I find it frustrating if I am using the Freeview with my Slingbox Pro on my Windows mobile phone that I can't see what program is on when changing channels. This information is broadcast with the TV stream so It would be great if it could be included in the Slingplayer mobile application.

                                    • Update Mac SlingPlayer

                                      Currently, the Mac SlingPlayer is lacking behind the Windows version. The Windows version has buffering, a TV Guide and Sling accounts. The Mac version is lacking all of these features that I, and undoubtedly all other Mac users, are craving too! Is this being worked on at all, or is there a beta that we can sign up for?
                                      Show us Mac users some love!
                                      Thanks in advance for any help/response I receive.
