    The Slingbox pro and pro HD both have internal tuners. If you have cable TV and a box, you can set basic cable as one input and the box as another.

    That way, you can watch a different channel on your iPad than the home TV Is on. The sling mobile app will let you pick either input, so I use my high def box on the home TV and watch basic cable on the iPad on any channel I want.

    One thing to keep in mind is, the sling mobile iPad app only works with the newest sling boxes. The iPad app works great with my pro HD, but will not even start using the Slingbox pro saying it is incompatible.

    The older iPhone sling app will work in the iPad using 2x with the pro, but it looks horrible.

    I just downloaded it. I am on Comcast and it is working fine. Just used my Comcast email and password. You have to be subscribed to HBO for it to work.

    Can't speak to whether it works on the iPad, but it works quite well on my laptop via my Comcast subscription to HBO. There may be a couple of factors at work here.

    First, you must have a subscription to HBO through your cable provider, as noted above. It's not a "free" service. Second, I'm not certain that all Comcast subscribers can access premium content (such as HBO) on devices other than their TV's. Here in the Seattle area, Comcast was re-branded as "Xfinity" when it began offering premium programming on wireless devices. If that is not yet a nationwide feature, you may not be able to access HBO or other premium content.

    Please don't start your thought in the subject line, that's really annoying!

    App works great for me! Watched 5 episodes of Entourage yesterday.
