Submission + - Slingplayer app released, without 3G (ipodnn.com)

mr100percent writes: "Sling Media, makers of Slingbox, submitted their iPhone app for review in March, only to be held in limbo while Apple and AT&T discussed the matter. AT&T feared the streaming player (which streams live TV from a person's home to an iPhone) would saturate the 3G network and bring it to a crawl, eventually quietly changing their TOS to ban "redirecting television signals for viewing on Personal Computers." Fastforward to May and their App is released, without 3G support. That's right, AT&T leaned on Apple to block the app, until Slingplayer relented and made it a WiFi only app. Slingplayer users are not happy."
