I AM WITH YOU 100%!
I have had a Slingbox since 2007. I'm now on my second device. And today, I opened my Slingplayer for MAC and it ran maybe 5 back to back commercials! I too will NOT be getting another Slingbox. I understand that they need to make money, but I bought the Slingbox, bought the iPad app, the iPhone App and STILL I need to watch commercials!
If you read the Slingbox.....you are going to lose customers for sure if you continue down this path. This isn't YOUTUBE!
I have talked up your products to many people since 2007. And I know that I've been responsible for some of your sales, because it WAS excellent.
