Sling Media Brings Home Television to Windows Mobile Devices
Sling Media has announced SlingPlayer Mobile, a new software client that gives Slingbox customers the ability to watch and control their home TV from any wireless-enabled Windows Mobile Smartphone or Pocket PC. The new SlingPlayer Mobile software supports all flavors of Windows Mobile including Windows Mobile for Pocket PC and Windows Mobile for Smartphone, and is compatible with both Windows Mobile 2003 and the recently released Windows Mobile 5 OS.

Unlike other services currently available for mobile phones and handheld computers, SlingPlayer Mobile gives consumers their entire home TV experience. Anything that you can watch back home, you can now watch via your Windows Mobile-based device. In addition, SlingPlayer Mobile customers can fully control a home DVR to record shows, watch shows that have been previously recorded, and even pause and replay live TV.

The Slingbox enables consumers to watch their living room TV programming from wherever they are by turning virtually any Internet-connected Windows-based laptop or desktop and any Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC or Smartphone into a personal TV. The Slingbox redirects, or "placeshifts," a single live TV stream from a cable box, satellite receiver, or digital video recorder (DVR) to the viewer's PC -- located anywhere in the home or anywhere in the world, via the Internet.

The SlingPlayer Mobile software will be available in the first quarter of 2006. Pricing and distribution will be announced at that time.
