    I don't want to get into a huge discussion about how terrible Sling is treating early adopters. Rather,i have a question for those who have done the upgrade program. Do I have to order the slingbox online? Or can I print out the coupon and go to best buy?

    I haven't done the upgrade (don't plan to either) but from my following in the iPhone threads the coupon is limited to online ordering and ONLY from Sling. You'll find better deals going to Amazon than using this upgrade offer.

    I'm such a sucker :(.

    Their upgrade program is trash, first of all - it can be had cheaper if you buy it sans discount on Amazon. But anyhow, I plunked down the change for a Slingbox Solo on eBay. It was brand new in box for $115 shipped. My slingbox AV is already on eBay now so hopefully I can recoup half of my loss or so.

    Well, now that Slingbox screwed me once - hopefully I don't get screwed by AAPL / ATT and they come out and release this darn thing!
