I'm attempting to do just that. However, I bought mine a year ago and didn't really get a chance to use it until a couple of months ago, when, to my horror, ads were all over it. I attempted a return, but SlingMedia doesn't handle hardware returns, instead directing me to their hardware partner. I requested a return, but it was rejected 3 weeks later on the basis that there wasn't anything wrong with the hardware. (I COMPLETELY abhor advertisements and would not have bought the device if I had known they were going to have ads. I posted on the forums a couple of times trying to show people what I was doing. But I discovered my threads were silently "locked" and I just created a new one with the status update.
Recently, when I try to post or create anything, it says I'm logged off the forums, even though I'm clearly logged in. Tried from multiple computers and browsers.
I've since filed a BBB case to return the product, and BBB has accepted my case, but have yet to hear anything from Sling Media.
My stance is this: I've already bought the product, as well as the use of the software to use the product. Product 100% payed for. They switched the function of the software several months after I bought to software so that I keep "paying" for something I do not want.
The way the company has been behaving towards its customers, as well as their actions towards me on the forums (I was completely NON-Hostile and I presented my case as professionally as possible), is completely uncalled for and I'm not surprised this class-action lawsuit exists. It might save me from going to small-claims.
