    Help please. I just signed up for slingtv and when I stream on AirPlay from slingtv, it only streams audio. I have updated And restarted all of my devices, both iPhone and iPad.

    Any suggestions?

    SlingTV is AirPlay restricted. I can Mirror it from my MacBook, but iOS will only stream audio from my iPhone to my ATV4. As there's a tvOS SlingTV app, it doesn't really matter...

    Assuming you mean ATV3 (ATV4 has the Sling TV app, so AirPlay really wouldn't be needed). Yes, ATV3 won't AirPlay Sling TV. They (Sling TV) are aware of this and on their website they say they're working on fixing this to enable legacy ATV3 viewing via AirPlay

    However, what works well is use the mirroring option on your iPad or iPhone to your ATV3. Also set overscan to off in your ATV3 settings, and Sling TV will come in perfectly on your TV.
