The player software is now ad-infested. You have to view an ad before you an watch, and while watching occasionally an ad pops up. Horrible, completely ruins the viewing experience.

Slingbox has decided to inject flashing ads on 1/3 of the desktop ap without anyway of removing or opting out. Having paid for the device and payng for my cable now I'm forced to endure to watch a flashing ad and smaller signal from my home. Will be throwing slingbox in trash and buying different product.

As you will see from all recent reviews Sling have added adverts to the player software thereby ruining the viewing experience. Until these are removed I cannot recommend this product.

Sling just added ads all over Slingplayer Desktop. No warning and no way to turn them off. Now you have to look at these BIG bright ads that are irrelevant while trying to playback TV from your Slingbox. I would have never bought one if I knew they would do this!

BTW, Sling is notes for removing any negative feedback from their community website. This is a heavy handed company that does not like criticism!

Product now includes banner ads in the player app taking up valuable real estate. Don't but this if you want to watch your cable on your desktop. The mobile apps seems fine

I was about to buy a sling box but why would I pay 200-300 to have them put a bunch if ads on my tv? It's too bad, sounds like everyone that owns a sling box really got hosed. They are even writing articles about how bad it is. Just search "zatznotfunny" and slingbox-ads.

UPDATE 3/27/2015
Slingbox now with Ads
I don't usually put updates on the top of my reviews, but this one fundamentally changes the viewing experience for a great portion of the slingbox community. Since this month (March 2015), Slingbox decided to push banner ads to users of both Slingplayer for Web and Desktop Slingplayer (These are the free viewers that probably 99% of people use). The introduction of ads has been a great shock to the user base, especially those who have been using the product ads free for years until now. Ads appear when first starting up (similar to other services such as YouTube) giving you an option to skip after a few seconds of viewing, then in normal screen mode(i.e. not full screen mode), ads appear on the bottom of the screen and change the new layout of the screen such that the actual viewing screen size is smaller. In full screen mode, the ads are not present. (See my pictures posted below) While the new ads are universally disliked, they are clearly implemented to enhance the Slingbox revenue stream and their addition has met quantum levels of dissatisfaction (See all new 1 star reviews on Amazon). I personally also found the ads highly distasteful and the management decision to add them regrettable. This is an unfortunate move by Slingbox and your individual level of comfort with this will be tested. Although I would add that this change makes an easy target for competitors to differentiate themselves.

Please note this applies to ALL Slingbox models. There are several situation where there may be no other alternative to Slingbox (competition is currently non-existent). For these cases you should consider the cheaper Slingbox M1 version ahead of the Slingbox 500/SlingTV.
