Sling Media Launches Slingbox in United Kingdom
Sling Media, Inc. is introducing the Slingbox device in the United Kingdom. The Slingbox is offered both in store and online from DSGi (formerly Dixons Stores Group), initially sold exclusively through DSGi’s computer superstore PC World. The Slingbox will also be available in Currys and the newly remodelled Currys.digital stores in the next month.

The Slingbox is a consumer electronics device that enables consumers to watch their living room TV programming from wherever they are by turning virtually any Internet-connected Windows-based computer into a personal TV. The Slingbox redirects, or “placeshifts,” a single live TV stream from a basic aerial connection, cable box, satellite receiver or personal video recorder (PVR) to the viewer’s PC – located anywhere in the home, the office, or on the go via the Internet

The Slingbox is available in the UK for £179.99 including VAT.

The European version of the Slingbox is tailored for the UK market and features an integrated PAL analogue/digital tuner with DVB-T support, giving customers access to Freeview programming from their aerial streamed to a laptop or desktop computer.

In addition, Slingbox controls a wide range of Freeview, digital cable and satellite set top boxes that are available in the UK market including those offered by Sky, Homechoice, NTL and Telewest.

Concurrently, Sling Media is releasing a new version of the SlingPlayer PC software in conjunction with the Slingbox hardware. SlingPlayer PC version 1.1 is now available to UK customers and supports 16:9 widescreen video, enhanced favourite channels organization features and the ability to customize the look and feel of the software with a range of pre-installed or user-created skins.
