      I bought the w8 apps for my windows phone. Do I have to buy the app again for my computer? I'm not using rt, just the traditional one for 32 bits.

      thanks.

          No, SlingPlayer for Windows 8 does not work on any version of Windows Phone (7, 8, or other).

           

          But if you're using traditional x86 Windows, navigate over to newwatch.slingbox.com and watch there at no additional charge.

              When you buy the slingplayer for ios it works everywhere why not with windows or at least 50% discount don't you think?

                  Not sure what exactly you're saying here.

                   

                  If you're saying "Why doesn't SlingPlayer for iOS work with [any flavor of] Windows?", they're completely different even though they seem the same.  The same reason one can't take the engine for a semi truck and install it in a car.

                   

                  If you're saying "SlingPlayer for iOS works on OS X, why doesn't SlingPlayer for Windows Phone work on Windows 8?", SlingPlayer for iPhone nor SlingPlayer for iPad work on OS X.
