The browser based Slingplayer gets worse with every update. The advertising has become more intrusive and now occupies more screen space than the actual streaming image. I assume this is Sling's way of generating revenue to offset their service costs. I assume at some point they will offer a paid service plan that enables users to skip all the advertising. Until then I guess we will have to live with their attempt at taking advantage of their UI surface by ******* off users with unwanted advertising.
It would be awesome if some developer would create a new PC browser Slingplayer version that does not include advertising panels.
1. Run No Script. The result is absolutely NO ADS!
2. Have you tried the Popup Player option located at the top right with a rectangle icon. This takes the video OUT of the browser tab and opens a separate WINDOW with minimal interface and can be resized for placement on your desktop. Do the ads still appear in the Popup Player?
