    Why does my Sling mobile app for Android "ONLY" connect on Wi-Fi?

      I installed the Sling Mobile app on my Motorola Droid running Android 2.1.  It works great when I’m home and connected to my home’s WiFi.  When outside of my home I thought it would automatically connect to the Verizon 3G network.  I see the 3G symbol on the display (see attached photo) so I assume I have a strong signal.  I can surf the web with the browser so I verified the phone was connecting.   Can someone explain why the Sling player doesn’t work?  It give me a message saying “Connection failed.  Please make sure your phone and Slingbox are connected to the Internet” (see attached photo).

       

      Thanks,
