Unfortunately, it requires flash.

Thanks for the answer. Flash is not going to be supported?

I'm not sure what the online client is built in, but the video is in VC-1, not H.264 or Xvid, so it can't be used anyway.

Also Wine does not run on ARM.

Maybe there is an XBMC addon that will read the Slingbox HD stream?

Can't you buy a VC-1 license now?

Yes.
Wine doesn't work and won't work on a Pi. WINE Is Not an Emulator , therefore only provides API hooks.
It needs a x86 , but the Pi is ARM.

Last update on this topic was over a year ago, where there was some hope XBMC might be able to decode Slingbox HD Pro.. anyone had any luck with this? I'm trying to build a low-cost media device for two TVs in my house. With XBMC on Pi and my Plex server, it seems I have everything covered except my Slingbox. :(

I'm hoping maybe some progress has been made in the last year and the magic bits might be there to get a sling feed on my Pi. Any news or success stories would be great!

You can always try hacking with rtmpdump and omxplayer , because
Flash will never work on the Pi :
