2/20/2014DO NOT PURCHASE garbage app. Support is terrible
2/4/2014The 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.). I hope they put a lil TLC into this app soon, a lot has changed with Windows phone since they last did an update.
1/15/2014Fine when it works, but very frustrating when it just stops working for days until they fix it. Worked for a month on my Lumia 1520. Not working this morning despite rebooting, reinstalling. Watching on my tablet instead thru the browser.
1/5/2014This app can be 5 stars but a glitch on start up bumps it down. I have DirecTV and a slingbox 350. When the app starts up the app doesn't connect automatically. A notification pops up stating it could not connect due to little or no connection. I found that if I press the guide button the slingbox will connect. It works everytime. Other than that the app works great and the quality is great as well.
1/2/2014Doesn't work with all windows phones. Waste of money
12/25/2013Works great with my Lumia 1520, the app is a little pricy but your getting HD tv on the go, yes! its worth it also it pays to have a bigger phone screen,
12/14/2013Works fine with Lumia1020 & Slingbox Pro HD. Interface can be better, like having presets, favorite channel shortcuts. Can't set default to HQ image quality.
12/14/2013Worst app of this era. Funny thing is these guys started new app for the windows 8 to charge once again the poor customers. This app never worked correctly. One has to buy separate IPad app 14.99,iPhone app 14.99, android phone 14.99, Android tablet 14.99, windows phone 8 14.99, windows 8 tablet 14.99. Those who are having these devices, calculate how much it costs all together for the apps and device that doesn't work most of the times.
