3G-compatible SlingPlayer headed to iPhone In June 2008, Sling Media introduced an iPhone-version of the SlingPlayer software, however, it only worked over Wi-Fi, and not AT&T's 3G data service.
As of this week, it appears a 3G-compatible version is coming.

Say the companies:

"Just as we've worked with Sling Media in this instance, we look forward to collaborating with other developers so that mobile customers can access a wider, more bandwidth-sensitive, and powerful range of applications in the future,"
said Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. "Collaboration with developers like Sling Media ensures that all apps are optimized for our 3G network to conserve wireless spectrum and reduce the risk that an app will cause such extreme levels of congestion that they disrupt the experience of other wireless customers. Our focus continues to be on delivering the nation's most advanced mobile broadband experience and giving our customers the widest possible array of mobile applications."

The upgrade is free to existing customers.

I've been using ORB via cydia since I can remember until it became LEGAL in the app store for $9.99 and free on your PC/Mac...I already had the video card so coast was not a issue but I can not only access all my TV channels, I can access all my media from my PC/Mac. All I did was use my ATI HD card and plugged my cable(from comcast) into the card. In my opinion, it's been perfect and it's accessible from PC's(downtime at work allows for some good ole' post season baseball streamed from my PC!) Check into this if you don't have the money to cough over...
