    Does Slingbox 500 work with the new smart TVs?


      Does the new Slingbox 500 work wirelessly with the new smart TV's. Have they developed an app to work wirelessly with the computer so that you don't have to attach it to a TV other than the computer. I was told they were working on it, but I have the older model.

          Hello bja1939,


          Thank you for posting in the answers forum! That's a great question! There is not yet a SlingPlayer application for any Smart TV. We do not have an ETA on when there will be an application for one of them. However, I would recommend using a Connected Device. An example would be a Netgear Neo TV. It is a streaming player that connects to your TV via HDMI and has the SlingPlayer application built-in to it so you can stream from your TV.


          Below is a link to a page on our site that explains SlingPlayer for Connected devices:



          Hope this helps!
