"Done in error"? Bullshit. I've worked for some decent sized companies and NOTHING legal gets done in error. EVERYTHING is done deliberately, with specific intentions, and reviewed multiple time by a legion of lawyers. It may have been a mistake in the sense that they tried to get away with something, were called on it, and are now backtracking in damage control mode, but to say it was done in error is just flat out lying.
I aint no punk beach I call horse crap as well. As an affected user, I was still going to use it anyways, albeit it limited to 30 mins to 1 hour a month. With capage, you're not going to be watching much.
I can imagine what went down at ATT.
-Mr. Mes Management: What the hell is a slingbox and why are all these nerds griping?
-random guy being yelled at: It is a placeshifting device where you can watch tv on the go via the interwebnet.
-Mr. Mes Management: Why the hell would anyone want to do that? I have a 72" OLED screen in my theater room. Watch tv on a tiny screen laptop screen haha.
-random guy 2 being yelled at: Here I'll show on my laptop. Let me see whats on my TIVO...boop bop boop bop.. A's are playing the Yankee's now.
-Mr. Mes Management: Hmmm, the quality is not so bad, the speed is good...So you mean I could have been watching ball games all this time? OMGWTFBBQ. Where can I get one of these things and get those idiots in legal to change the TOS and release a press release.
-random guy: Ai ai, captain!
-Mr. Mes Management: What did you say?
-randowm guy: oh nothing sir. Have a good day.
