    Yet another way for providers to get more data charges as people go beyond the ridiculously low data caps using Netflix, audio streaming, and Slingbox.

    Agreed. I will believe it when I see it. They are slow in general and their "announcements" mean only that it is on their list. It does not mean that it is imminent.

    It was in contemplation of such services that the carriers limited data.

    There was a report this week that peak Netflix traffic now consumes 20% of the net capacity.

    That's why i'm stuck with AT&T until LTE rolls out...I am under unlimited plans on iPhone and iPad and they won't be able to kick me out until technology changes, then they can make me change plans...

    I am now up to 4 systems where I use my Verizon MiFi. Rented a GSM MiFi when I was in Europe last week. Of course AT&T could have had that business in a heartbeat if they had had a competitive pricing plan. Sold my AT&T stock today.

    It's probably logical to assume that will will not see the iPad app until at least after 4.2 comes out...since we are so close to as iOS update I'm pretty sure they won't want to release a broken product, to turn around and have to hurry an update to fix....

    I agree with your reasoning. I hope that there are lots of iPad apps queued up for the same reason. I hope the iOS4.2 will release a backlog of iPad apps.

    That said, Slingbox is very late. As best I can tell, the only Slingbox client for the Mac is the Firefox plug-in. Seems to be working well and I do not know what a native client might include that this does not, but I was surprised.

    Welcome to Sling. I am still waiting on iOS4.2. I have given up on AT&T and am waiting for Verizon. I will keep this iPhone for when I leave the US.

    @guinness - You are not the only one. I have put off a Slingbox for years. Additionally, I have put off an iPad. Now that I am getting an iPad, I have to get the Slingbox in December and the iPad app will make it great.

    I may buy the app as I already have the cracked app for iPhone (though I can not use it). I'll give them money in hopes of updates.

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop!

    I do not mind giving Sling money, but if you are on a budget, stick with the iPhone app.

    It looks like $30.00.

    There's enough difference for me that the $30 was worth it. I like the controls interface as well as the quality of picture (even on 3G).
