On the anncoument on the site it says " Currently available on all devices except Sony Bravia and PlayStation 3 "


So am i correct in saying if i watch them useing my ps3 or bravia tv my data will get chewed up ?

If correct , Is it going to be unmetered to Ps3 and Bravia in the future ?

Hi,

At this stage the unmetered option is not working on Sony Bravia and Playstation 3, we are working on a solution to this but there is no time frame for this.

Thanks,
Slingshot

Something conveniently left off all the press releases and publicity done at time of launch* – especially considering that the HD content (the stuff that wwill chew through data) is only available on Sony Bravia.

 

 

Having said that, do slingshot customers really care that much about unmetering quickflix?  I mean you can buy a 100GB or 150GB plan for not very much from Slingshot (or unlimited), so how useful is unmetering really when the average movie is ~1GB
