The SlingPlayer has been a very popular application to multimedia users, and especially those that love high-definition content. For the iPhone, the application took a while to develop, and when it was released, it did not have the ability to stream over 3G either which was a letdown to many consumers. With the iPad however, SlingPlayer is being fully developed in a timely fashion so far, and should be out shortly after the device from Apple comes out. High resolution video is planned to be supported, and Sling is also planned to be moving towards H.264 format. The large screen on the iPad is also said to be a plus to the application, and users of it when it comes out should be satisfied with the multimedia aspect of it.
