Submission + - AT&T tries to quietly ban Slingplayer

mr100percent writes: You may remember earlier in the month when AT&T changed its Terms of Service, banning any video/audio streaming to its devices, which would have blocked SlingPlayer, Qik, Skype from its devices, mainly the iPhone. The immediate outcry made AT&T issue a retraction and claim it was all a mistake. Well, AT&T decided you all have a short memory. Electronista is reporting that AT&T has again modified the terms to specifically prevent "redirecting television signals for viewing on Personal Computers." This means you, Slingbox. The company submitted their iPhone app to the App Store a month ago, and rumor has it AT&T has been leaning heavily on Apple to reject it, for fears it will saturate the 3G network.
