I am also waiting with anticipation for a dedicated Apple TV app.
I have only used the android app and windows browser site and am unhappy with quality/lag. Is the iphone/iPad quality better than other clients (Windows, Fire TV, WDTV)? I'm certain the Apple TV SlingPlayer app will be the best slingplayer.
Sling team - can you at least respond to your customers' widespread desire for a dedicated Slingplayer app for the new Apple TV? If you would at least let us know whether the software is in development, it could help many of your customers with their media streamer buying decisions. Thanks for your feedback!
As a long time SlingBox (multiple iterations since Slingbox HD) user and beta tester, I am wondering why there isn't an app available as well. I am more than willing to buy an app in App Store for ATV simply because it's easier and cheaper to do that then pay for routing cable around my house simply to watch cable TV. Forget the headaches of an additional cable TV connection, setup box, weak signal, paying extra for an additional TV outlet and an HD fee on top of that. No thanks.
Forget CableCard, you can't watch DRM channels via cablecard tuners. Yes, I have a SiliconDust Prime CableCard tuner and the apps that support it on ATV4 won't allow me to watch HBO channels because they are DRM tagged.
So, my only other option is SlingBox at this point.
So, SlingMedia...please develop an ATV App Store app for SlingBox for ATV so that I can watch TV around the house where I don't want to route cable.
I would be willing to pay $19.99 for a SlingBox for ATV app.
