"AT&T on Wednesday quietly updated its cellphone terms of service to again potentially ban devices like the Slingbox on its network. Having initially pulled earlier changes in what was described as "an error," the carrier has again modified the terms to specifically prevent "redirecting television signals for viewing on Personal Computers.""
The obvious question that this change of TOS brings up is, "What exactly can we expect when the Slingbox app is released?" Honestly, who knows, but considering how long it's taking for the damn thing to be approved, you never know what AT&T thinks about Sling's app. It's also worth noting that AT&T does have a mobile TV product available on some of its phones, so they may just be pigeonholing you into their product.
I hope that isn't the case.
