I've heard if you jailbreak the iPad it will work. Also, a decent alternative to the Slingbox is a Vulkano by Monsoon Multimedia. It's not quite as polished as a Slingbox, but the streaming, at least for me, works quite well. I have both and they're about the same. I actually picked up a Vulkano Flow on clearance for $49 at my local radio shack, so you may want to check there if interested.
