Sling Media Working on Fix for Recent Slingbox Service Issues

Paul Lilly

Don't feel too down in the dumps if you're suddenly unable to access your Slingbox video streamer, you're not the only one to have this problem. In a recent forum post, Sling Media acknowledged that it was having issues, and that a fix is on the way.

"We are aware that some customers may be experiencing difficulties with logging in to their Sling Account. We're seeing the following symptoms:

  • Troubles logging in to Watch on or from within the desktop SlingPlayer 2.0 application.
  • After logging in, the Watch page never loads.
  • After logging in, the Slingbox Directory never loads.

If you're recently having any of the above problems, we apologize for the inconvenience. We're working to get this resolved quickly," Sling Media wrote.

According to a Slingbox spokesperson , the SNAFU occurred because of a "data migration process that, while carefully planned for a long time, still had a number of unexpected problems."

This all happened before the weekend, though some users are still reporting problems. Are you one of them? Hit the jump and let us know how your Slingbox is working out.
