Need to change your password or add a Slingbox to your account?

It's all in your Sling Account.

Sling Accounts are a free feature that keep track of your Slingbox ID numbers (earlier-generation Slingbox models only), Slingbox passwords, and your Favorites lists (if supported by your version of SlingPlayer). By letting your Sling Account save all this info for you, it's even easier to connect to your Slingbox, no matter what computer or mobile device you're using.

You can manually create a Sling Account for your Slingbox devices. After you've done this, you can log in to your new Sling Account from SlingPlayer. As soon as you do, your Slingbox devices appear in the SlingPlayer Directory.
