    Great I have been looking for something like this & will try it out.

  2. Is there any way a Canadian can register this? Rogers does not have any paid apps on the Market at this time.

    1. No, the press release said it’s limited to countries that offer paid apps in the Market.

  3. I thought so. Seems terribly unfair, not to say unprofitable… but thanks James. BTW I’ve been a fan of your site and podcast for a long time now, many thanks!

    1. Well the whole profit thing is a bit odd anyway as I suspect these guys aren’t licensed to resell or retransmit this programming. Guess they’re small enough to stay off the radar.

  10. Hi my name is Jesus and I just want to let everyone know about the Sling Link. Dish is offering this app that allows you to have access to your TV and DVR from your 3G mobile devices and high speed internet. Check it out at dishnetwork.com! I can say from experience this is really cool.
