Side note to of the smoothest apps I use on my L900. Installed the first day it was released. I do miss it on my titan though, can't wait for higher res screens.

Wait..i just thought of something, will my license for the app be transferred over to my wp8 device when I get it? Or will I have to buy it all over again. Has anyone asked that question yet?

What about the app on W8? What about different users on the same W8 device?

I'm curious to see how this is handled in the Metro environment because I like to dock the SlingPlayer to the side of the screen, or use it audio-only in the background while doing other work. With multitasking restricted in Windows 8 Metro apps, I hope they are able to use a background media task to keep it working, or at least handle the 1/3 and 2/3 split between multiple apps.

I just wish dish networks would release an app for windows phone. They have it on iOS and Android. It supports their sling adapter as well as programming DVRs and looking at the guide etc. They used to have a mobile website but that is gone too.

And btw I believe this app is incompatible with the dish sling adapter.

Did they fix the issues they had with slingbox? I bought one about 2 years ago ad then after a year it stopped working and it stopped working for alot of other people.
nobody could figure out why either so I ended up getting rid of it. I dont kno if it was dish who I had at the time or slibgbox screwing up at the time I've since switched to Comcast

Also, whenever Comcast brings their app to windows phone, doesn't the Comcast app on ios and android allow u to access ur cable box/dvr and watch your cable from our phone as well? I might just buy this app since its on sale and getta slingbox in a few weeks
