  • Sling is Out, Jailbreakers can Haz 3G


    We'll drum up a nice full review later today or tomorrow, but thought we'd let you all know who've been waiting - SlingPlayer Mobile is OUT! Click here to bring it up in iTunes, and yes, it is $29.99 as rumored earlier yesterday. And it doesn't work over 3G.

    Of course, I know you're thinking "wait, I don't know if $30 is worth it with no 3G usage available..." well, have no fear. Tricker ThreeG is now available via Cydia, which once installed allows you to use SlingPlayer Mobile over 3G as well as WiFi. No extra work, no tweaking, just install Tricker ThreeG and you're good to go.

    I've tried out SlingPlayer Mobile the last hour or so over both 3G and WiFi, and the quality is pretty good. There have been a few times I've been stuck with an "optimizing" message which sat there about 15-20 seconds while it buffered, but the playback is good, and it connected just fine to the SlingBox I have in my living room. The remote takes a little bit more getting used to, as it isn't the nifty remote Sling has that actually MATCHES your cable provider's remote - its just a standard. Once I used it an hour though it made sense.

    We'll see how it goes as I use it the rest of today... either way, this is pretty frickin awesome.

      You have to be on 2.2.1 or greater. Are you?

      Ok
      I am just going to make sure of this one thing
      If I went to another country (or state) and had a box at my house I could still watch t.v. from my phone
      All I need for all this to work is my phone (with slingplayer) and a sling box?

      Yes, all you need is a slingbox, and internet connection.
      (no monthly fees)

      The slingbox can either tune in analog tv directly, or control your cable/satellite tv box. Slingbox uses a "pass through" system so slingbox can encode what your tv see's at the same time. An IR cable is how slingbox controls your cable/satellite box. If you want HD (16:9) you need to get the HD Pro, if not get the cheaper standard one. (4:3)

      That is correct. The beauty of the internet


      Assuming you are unlocked and have a data plan for that other country otherwise your bill could be crazy huge to use on 3G

      I am on 2.1, You just ruined all my hopes of downloading and watching this while I am at work today. Now I have to wait until I get home to install the new software. What a project!

      he means the iphone being unlocked. if you are in the states your fine as long as you dont go over the cap which is pretty high around 5gb i believe. if you go to another country you will want to have your iphone unlocked and be on a provider from that country with a data plan unless you want to stay on at&t overseas and pay like a million dollars lol in data fees

      No it will not be. Only if you plan on traveling around the world then you will be limited to wifi only unless you unlock.

      This is all new to you, isn't it? lol It will work on both, and you only need one box.

      It will work for your ipod touch, of course on wifi. You only need one box but you can only have one slingplayer going at once.
