    I wonder if I can use this to watch my DISH Hopper with Sling adapter.

    Best Sling experience by far. The SlingPlayer app for AFTV is infinitely better than using the Android app with Chromecast support.

    The issues with Sling and Chromecast gave been well documented… Constant buffering and connection drops, even when streaming at standard quality. This native Sling app for Fire TV just works.

    Plus the app is free (not sure for how long though). Sling gouges you for 15 bucks EACH for their Android phone and tablet apps from the Play Store.

    I’m so excited – i can now get rid of the Roku in my bedroom. It’s only remaining puropse was to Sling TV from the cable box in the other room, AFTV did everthing else and now it does that too :)

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention…

      Did you ever resolve this? Ours is not working either. Could not find the app to reinstall after the Firestick issue last week.
