SlingPlayer Mobile Now Available

SlingPlayer MobileThe Slingbox just gets better and better with each new update, and the gang at Sling Media have finally released SlingPlayer Mobile.  Unlike streaming media options offered by Verizon, Sprint and Cingular, there’s no recurring monthly fees (aside from the data plan), and you can watch exactly what you want to.  The software works on PocketPC and Windows Mobile 5 devices, with the exception of Windows Smartphones.  SlingPlayer Mobile for Smartphones will be released in the 2nd Quarter of 2006. 

For proper operation a minimum of 112Kbps sustained incoming bandwidth is required.  Beyond that just about any type of Internet connection will do, including WiFi, USB, Bluetooth, EV-DO and UMTS.  EDGE may not quite make the grade as its advertised speeds range form 80-130Kbps, so your mileage may vary.

SlingPlayer Mobile is available for purchase at $29.99 USD unless of course you qualify to get it free.  To obtain a free license you must have purchased and registered your SlingPlayer prior to April 26, 2006.
