Wait, there's a slingplayer on Roku right?
There is but it requires an iOS or Android device with the SlingPlayer mobile app installed to utilize this. The most recent update to the mobile app provides full hand-off to the Roku so you can send the video to the Roku from the mobile app and close the app if you want (previously it required the mobile app running at all times while utilizing Roku). You can't control or change channels with the Roku remote you must use the SlingPlayer app on the mobile device for this. The SlingPlayer app for mobile devices is a one time $14.99 fee, but no additional fee for the SlingPlayer channel you add to the Roku.
