I'm looking into alternatives to cable and am considering paying a friend to have an extra cable box and then using a sling box to watch that cable box at my house. I have an Apple TV (3rd gen) and an iPad (also 3rd gen) so I know I could use the slingplayer app on my ipad and airplay to watch it on the tv. However then my ipad cannot be used while I'm watching tv. Is there a way to jailbreak the atv and install a slingplayer client on it? I've seen some stuff with the xbmc client, but I have my doubts about how well that will work. Let me know your thoughts. I'm also open to any alternative suggestions you guys may have.
