When you say that you believe it will "never" be released, you are saying that you believe the app will not ever be approved by Apple, and will not ever become released. So, if you believe that, then to hope it is approved before baseball begins makes no logical sense.


    It has often taken apps well over a month from submission until either approval and release, or non-approval. I understand that Apple is quite backed up in reviewing and approving apps.

    It may or may not get approved. Just like everyone else here, I am very much looking forward to its approval. I have been waiting far longer than a week - I have been waiting since I switched from using a WMobile phone two years ago, since I was able to sling on it with no problems at all. SlingPlayer is the one app that I have longed for ever since I got my first iPhone.


    Not true. There is no app at all that competes with it.
    That was a lot. I just want this app asap. I think you're going a little overboard.

    As I mentioned, we all would like this app as soon as possible. I'm not sure why you think I am "going a little overboard." I know you only have 15 posts. But, what I am doing here is replying to posts. That's what a forum is!

    looks like he was a little right with AT&T's latest announcement/changes.

    im sure MMi will have them up as news in a day or so, but until then:

    AT&T tweaks wireless terms of service to forbid video streaming, filesharing, data tethering

    Looks like in America at least that skype isnt quite going to be the perfect app it could be

    It's now time for someone to get the beta version and get it loaded up on Cydia. ATT has allowed slinging for years on its other platforms, including WMobile and BB. So, this coming now is nothing more than a slap at the ready-to-go iPhone release.

    Lets wait for the MMi news post on this subject in a day or 2 then discuss it a bit more.

    Sounds like AT&T are screwing you guys over big time.

    my fears are coming close to reality. looks like apple/at&t are gonna put some version of a sling in a future model and screw sling over. i say sling beats them to the punch and drops it in the cydia store or somewhere else where they can still make a profit, then again we all need to buy the actual slingbox so just let us sling for free. dont know if anyone caught wind of this but slingg is stating that in order to sling on an iphone you will need the newer models of the slingbox....i guess im not cool for having a slingbox for a couple years already.

    great news! check this out...

    AT&T has responded to changes in its terms of service agreement which banned apps such as SlingPlayer calling it an "error". Electronista was sent a statement in response to media outrage over the changes.

    ...

    It is still unclear whether this reversal of policy is due to a genuine error or due to the bad publicity these restrictions caused.
    via iClarified

    AT&T tonight has quickly backtracked on its controversial new terms of service for cellphones that would ban video on 3G and the rest of its cellular network. In a statement delivered to Electronista, the company claims that the posting was made "in error" and that it has since been removed in favor of an earlier agreement. No mention was made as to whether any of the terms were likely to return in the future.

    While the motivation behind the quick retraction is unclear, the policies had already triggered a hostile reaction from critics. The new agreement was ostensibly made to bar illegal video streams over peer-to-peer or to rebroadcast a live feed of commercial TV, but its wording would have effectively banned the use of Slingbox media hubs used to view a customer's own TV and would theoretically have barred viewing legal video sites using fixed sources, like Hulu or TV.com.

    Video is already partly regulated on the network, as devices like the iPhone are often required to stream certain video services on Wi-Fi or else to reduce the bitrate.

    @tsatryan - meet you at the bottom of the cliff. After you've cought the slingbox and I've caught the iPhone we must remember to get out the way. We don't want to be hit by SB's body....

    You guys are lucky. This app is not even available in canada, possibly because the sole carrier Rogers doesn't like the idea. I will be pretty surprise if CRTC (equivalent to FCC in US) and the canadian gov't will do anything on it......
    Perhaps I should move on as canada is definitely not a place to stay if you are tech savvy

    Please ignore this post. I'd meant to post it on the thread for Skype app... Sorry for the confusion...
    Cheers

    This app is not available anywhere else - so where would you move to?
