    I worked for Dish last year and they had the add on Slingboxes then, however they were not really pushing them and few of the installers knew much about them. I believe they were waiting on their newest DVR that had the slingbox built in before pushing it, that way they could add boxes for customer that already had dish and keep them happy and then install the new DVR for new subscribers.

    If you have to add a sling box anyway, why not just use the sling box? Why go through Dish?

    For me, I was going to have to add additional hardware beyond the slingbox. The Dish sling adapter just plugs into the reciever and away you go.

    I moved this thinking that it should have a wider audience. If you disagree, PM a mod. I'm not personally involved in the decision. :)

    Standard quality works fine on 3G - High Quality setting won't work without wifi.

    If you need customer support, you need to ask specifically for a sling specialist. The help I've had from them has been very good. The average Dish tech doesn't know squat about it.

    Granted, it's not perfect.
