    Is that a typo? $29.99 per month?

    think that $29.99 is a one time fee for the cost of the software if i'm not wrong.

    It is $29.99 for the slingmobile client. A one time fee, not a monthly fee. At least that is what it was for my Windows Mobile client.... hmmm maybe they will let me migrate my license to my blackberry... I hope they release this SOON!!!

    Is this going to require a data package?

    one time fee would be great.

    30 bucks a month is theft!

    Well I HOPE $29.99/mo. is a typo. I'm not exactly the richest man in the world and my wireless bill is hard enough to cover as it is....

    $29.99 ONE TIME FEE on the other hand is a REALLY good deal!

    I wish this was available everywhere like open wireless networks, it would be great if channels were available to just connect and stream to your bb whenever you felt like watching. thankyou Hayden for the news update.

    That is exactly what the slingbox client does, streams your TV signal over any connected device whenever you want it. It even streams over the cellular network. Although EDGE can be too slow at times with my Treo 650.
