Slinging TV to iPhones
Worshippers in the Cult of the iPhone soon will have another toy to play with — a TV-mobility experience from EchoStar’s Sling Media that no cable or telco TV provider matches today.
Like Sling’s mobile player for other smartphones, the iPhone app gives Slingbox users access to cable, telco or satellite set-top boxes, including the full channel lineup and DVR recordings. The company said it will deliver a version of iPhone player to Apple for certification in Q1; it hasn’t determined pricing but other versions of SlingPlayer Mobile are $29.99 for an electronic download.
Also this week, Sling Media is showing a prototype of the SlingPlayer for Mac HD which allows Slingbox PRO-HD users to stream HD content to their Mac desktop or laptop computer.
