SlingStudio comes with 90 days of free technical support, plus a one-year warranty for the hardware.
If you don't register your SlingStudio, you still qualify for these benefits, but you must first furnish some kind of proof-of-purchase document to get them. This can be an inconvenience at a time when you just want to be productive again.
For this reason, we recommend that you take a moment register your SlingStudio.
You can register your SlingStudio the first time that you install and run the Console app ... a prompt appears asking you to do that.
