Now that Sling Media has stooped so low as to blast us with advertisements on hardware that we paid hundreds of dollars for, it is quite clear that their current business model is not working and they are trying to nickel and dime their existing customers. It probably won't be long before the company goes under. Nobody is going to buy their hardware, thanks to all of the negative reviews they are receiving on Amazon. I surely would never recommend it, with all these obnoxious advertisements that are forced down my throat. So my question is this: When (not if) Sling Media goes out of business, will my Slingbox still function?
