    What's this "Authorize my computer" thing?

    millermmail Newbie

      I recently tried to set up SlingPlayer on someone's Mac so we could watch TV on their computer -- something I've had no trouble with on PCs.  As soon as I opened it, I got a strange popup saying I needed to provide an email address to "authorize slingplayer to use my computer" or I'd be limited to a 30-day trial.

       

      What's this "authorize" thing mean?

      Is there some extra cost to use SlingPlayer on a Mac?

      Why does it need my email address if I already created an a Sling Account on a PC?

      Does this mean I can only use my SlingBox on one Mac?
