Sling Media today announced the availability of the SlingPlayer Mobile player for the Apple iPad. That’s pretty handy if you are a Slingbox owner who is just itching to get their favorite shows streamed to their iPad. SlingPlayer Mobile software for iPad allows you to stream Live TV to your iPad and takes advantage of the iPad’s high-resolution, 9.7-inch LED-backlit display for great video quality.
For those wondering what Sling is all about, it is a box that connects to your home entertainment devices and allows you to access it from wherever you have a 3G or WiFi connection. You can also control your multimedia center from your device. With your iPad device in your hand you can change the channel and even control the DVR (at home) right from your workplace (office).
SlingBox Solo, Pro, or Pro-HD set-top boxes are required to use this app on iPad. Slingbox Classic, AV, and TUNER are not supported for use with SlingPlayer Mobile. If you do not currently have a SlingPlayer box or don’t plan to get one, this will be a waste of your money.
On pricing upfront, SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad is available now for U.S. $29.99, UK GBP Sterling 17.99, and 23.99 Euros from the App Store or at iTunes. You can follow us on twitter or join our facebook fanpage to keep yourself updated on such iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad Apps.
