SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone, SlingPlayer for Mac HD to be Shown at Macworld

SAN FRANCISCO -- During this week's Macworld Expo, Sling Media will demonstrate SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone as well as a prototype of SlingPlayer for Mac HD, which allows Slingbox PRO-HD users to stream content to a Mac. The latter is a web-based version of the SlingPlayer software that will be available for free during 1Q09.

SlingPlayer Mobile will allow iPhone and iPod touch users to not only watch the TV channels they have at home but also control their home DVR to view recorded shows, set up new recordings, and pause, rewind, and fast-forward live TV. Sling Media has not set a price point for the app, which it expects to deliver to Apple's iTunes App Store this quarter.
