If your new phone has a different operating system, you'll need to purchase a new copy of SlingPlayer to support it. Or, if you want to take advantage of the increased resolution and screen real estate on your new iPad or Android tablet, you'll need to purchase SlingPlayer for iPad or SlingPlayer for Android Tablets, even though you've already purchased SlingPlayer for your iPhone or Android phone.
We understand that it can be frustrating to have to purchase a new copy, but developing and supporting high quality video streaming for each mobile platform requires substantial engineering effort on our part. And with each new version of Apple’s iOS for the iPhone, the Android OS, Windows Phone, and so on, we have to extensively test SlingPlayer and make changes as required to support the new version.
Here's a breakdown of which versions of SlingPlayer can be transferred or shared between devices:
