    Have you tried just going to their web site? If that doesn't work, there must be a web link that the spotlight jumps to that we can figure out.

    Try adding

    Http://download.slingmedia/spcd/gtv/index.html

    to a bookmark and see if that opens up your sling directory and runs the slingplayer. That's the web link on the slingplayer app within spotlight.

    Can someone please confirm if they got a workaround to get SlingPlayer app working in the NSZ-GS7 Canadian units?

    I'm thinking of picking one up but will be a deal breaker if I can't get slingplayer app working natively

    Also side question, how often do google TV get updates? Will we never/take forever to see ICS/JB on these units? I see people flashing XMBC to it, anyways to flash ICS/JB on theM?

    Can't you just buy it and return it if it doesn't do what you want?

    Yes it works, with the NSZ-GS7 canadian version, simply paste the url: Http://download.slingmedia/spcd/gtv/index.html to Chrome then Bookmarked, after in bookmarks, press the link for 2-3 seconds a menu will popup, then choose add to home, and you will got the shortcut for SlingPlayer...

    Good luck!

    ^ thanks that works...but I would like to know if there's any way to get the app version.

    I flashed my unit to the american REL05 firmware.

    I am very curious if anyone has any idea as well. I don't like not being able to open up the guide with just one click.

    You can't. At this point, slingplayer isn't even an app, it's just a web page you go to.
