What Does This Warranty Cover?
Sling Media L.L.C. (“Sling Media”) warrants your SlingStudio hardware products against defects in materials and workmanship of SlingStudio hardware products purchased or leased from Sling Media or its authorized resellers or partners and extends only to the original user of such products under ordinary use in accordance with the documentation and/or user manuals provided or made available with your SlingStudio hardware products. This warranty does not cover any Sling Media software provided with your SlingStudio or other third-party hardware or software. Your use of any such third-party hardware or software will be governed by the terms and conditions of any such third-party hardware or software license or warranty agreement accompanying such third-party hardware or software; or as agreed to when you set up an account for your SlingStudio hardware product. This warranty is valid only in the United States.
How Long Does the Coverage Last?
If your SlingStudio hardware product was purchased from an authorized reseller or directly from Sling Media, your SlingStudio hardware product is warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for one (1) year from the original date of purchase (the “Warranty Period”). If you are leasing your SlingStudio hardware product from an authorized Sling Media partner or from Sling Media directly, your SlingStudio hardware product is warranted for one (1) year from the date your lease began, unless a different period is specified in your lease agreement or other agreement pursuant to which you obtain your SlingStudio hardware product.
What will Sling Media Do?
In the event your SlingStudio hardware product is defective and (i) the defect is covered by this warranty; and (ii) the defect arises during the Warranty Period; and (iii) you follow the instructions for returning the defective SlingStudio hardware product, then Sling Media will, at our option and to the extent permitted by law, repair or replace your defective SlingStudio hardware product with a new or refurbished SlingStudio hardware product that is functionally equivalent to the hardware product being replaced. This limited warranty will continue to apply to any replacement SlingStudio hardware product that we provide, but only for the remainder of the original Warranty Period applicable to you.
How Do You Get Warranty Service?
For specific instructions about how to obtain warranty service for your SlingStudio hardware product during the Warranty Period, please contact the Sling Media customer service department at 1-866-974-2570. Proof of purchase may be required to verify eligibility. In general, you will need to deliver your defective SlingStudio hardware product in either its original packaging or in equally protective packaging to the address specified by the Sling Media customer service department. Sling Media will pay for shipping of the replacement SlingStudio hardware product to your location if all instructions regarding warranty services are followed, but you will be responsible for paying for all shipping of your defective SlingStudio hardware product to Sling Media. Before you deliver your defective SlingStudio hardware product for replacement, it is your responsibility to remove any removable storage media and back up any data, software or other information or materials you may have stored, preserved or loaded on your SlingStudio hardware product. Sling Media is not responsible for any damage to, or the loss of any storage media, data, software or other information or materials that you may have stored, preserved or loaded on your SlingStudio hardware product.
What Does This Warranty Not Cover?
You may only exercise this warranty from the country in which you purchased or leased your SlingStudio hardware product. Sling Media will not send repaired or replacement products to addresses outside the country in which you purchased your SlingStudio hardware product. If your SlingStudio hardware product is not covered by this warranty, Sling Media may offer to provide out-of-warranty service to you at Sling Media's then-current rates, which includes the cost to ship a refurbished unit to you that has the same or similar features. This warranty does not cover the following:
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT AS PROVIDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES, AND SLING MEDIA SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL STATUTORY AND/OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND AGAINST HIDDEN OR LATENT DEFECTS. IN THE EVENT SLING MEDIA CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR REMEDIES, THEN TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY AND ALL SUCH WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY AND TO THE REPLACEMENT OF YOUR SLINGSTUDIO HARDWARE PRODUCT. Some states do not allow limitations on how long a statutory or implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SLING MEDIA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO OR INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE SLINGSTUDIO HARDWARE PRODUCT, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY OR BROUGHT UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SLING MEDIA'S LIABILITY, IF ANY, EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID FOR YOUR SLINGSTUDIO HARDWARE PRODUCT.
SLING MEDIA RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO HONOR THIS WARRANTY IF IT DETERMINES THAT ANY OF THE EXCEPTIONS DESCRIBED ABOVE HAVE CAUSED YOUR SLINGSTUDIO HARDWARE PRODUCT NOT TO HAVE PERFORMED PROPERLY.
THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE VOID IF ANY FACTORY-APPLIED IDENTIFICATION MARK, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE SERIAL NUMBER, HAS BEEN ALTERED OR REMOVED. THIS WARRANTY SHALL ALSO BE VOID IF THE SLINGSTUDIO HARDWARE PRODUCT HAS BEEN OPENED BY AN UNAUTHORIZED PERSON.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state in the United States. To the extent that this limited warranty is inconsistent with local law, this warranty shall be deemed modified to be consistent with such local law.
