  • [Rumor] SlingBox's SlingPlayer Rejected From App Store by AT&T


    It seems like forever since SlingBox announced that they had submitted their SlingPlayer application (which we checked out at MacWorld) to the App Store. Weeks later we are left here wondering where is SlingPlayer at?

    If Fudzilla's sources are to be believed we may not get the pleasure of streaming our home TV connection to the iPhone. The sources say that the reason it has been rejected is because AT&T has requested that it not be allowed into the App Store. Why? Because AT&T is afraid of how much bandwidth the app will take up.

    Hopefully this is nothing more than a rumor and we'll see SlingPlayer very soon. Poetic_folly can't wait to watch Lost on his iPhone . According to the BGR SlingBox has said that they have heard no word from Apple yet so odds look good that this is just a bad rumor -- at least we hope so.

    thanks JazJon for the tip

      SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone Still Awaiting Approval, Despite Rumors From "Sling in the News", A Blog by SlingCommunity News: Sling Community

      Sling added a few more comments to the sling iPhone page:

      "The team has been working hard to bring the SlingPlayer Mobile experience to the iPhone and iPod Touch. We've submitted the first release of our application to the iPhone App Store. We are in close contact with our partners at Apple and are optimistic that it will be approved soon. We hope the wait won't be much longer. In the mean time, take a sneak peek!"

      now if it is truly been rejected all together than i think they would be foolish to not release it on cydia.

      sorry to disagree with ya on that on stealth


      J/K got nothing but love for ya!

      I can verify this. I just checked out the ad. It was for the Slingbox Solo. Come on apple, just approve it and release it. 4 weeks and waiting anxiously.
