Sling Media Releases SlingPlayer Mobile Software
Sling Media, Inc. has announced the first official release of SlingPlayer Mobile for Slingbox owners. SlingPlayer Mobile is a new software package that gives Slingbox owners the ability to watch and control their home TV from any network-enabled mobile phone or handheld computer (PDA) powered by Windows Mobile.

The SlingPlayer Mobile software is compatible with devices that run Windows Mobile Pocket PC 5.0 and Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.

Sling Media will deliver a version for non-touchscreen devices based on Windows Mobile Smartphone later this quarter.

The software is available now from Sling Media's website and includes a free 30-day trial. The retail price of the application is US$29.99. Slingbox owners who purchased and registered their Slingbox on or before 26 April 2006 will receive a free license for SlingPlayer Mobile. There are no monthly or recurring charges for the use of the software.

SlingPlayer Mobile gives consumers their entire home TV experience, including local channels, local sports teams, video on demand, pay per view, etc. Any program that a user can watch from the sofa back home, can now be watched via a Windows Mobile-based device through a standard network connection (3G, WiFi, Bluetooth or even USB).

In addition, SlingPlayer Mobile users can also control their home digital video recorder (DVR) to watch recorded shows, pause, rewind, and fast forward live TV, or even queue new recordings while on the road.
