Programers for Fire TV and Google app are both Android based.  Roku is its own OS.  I assume the Roku team was let go a long time ago.  They cheap to hire a team to update it since hardware is probably EOL.

Bad that they have all that material they out there saying they support Roku.  Smell Class action lawsuit from some lawyer people who do that sort of thing.

Firestick doesnt support all slingboxes; or as many as Roku (did). Same with Chromecast.

Please everyone leave a 1 star review of Slingplayer app and say doesn’t support Roku.  Strength in numbers.

Casting is the slingplayer workaround....cast directly to your tv or your roku.....change the aspect ratio on your phone to 16:9
I also bought roku for slingplayer app...

It's "heading in the basement" because Sling won't write an app for it?  I think you're confused who does what in this business.

So if Roku did not make their firmware new version backwards compatible, it's SlingPlayer's fault?

Yes.  It is not Roku's fault that Sling is choosing not to support their own app and update it as the underlying system updates.

Let me understand: So Roku removed working software functionality, and it's the other guys fault.

As a long-time professional software developer, I find that logic incredibly faulty.
