SlingPlayer Mobile Now Available in iPhone App Store

Sponsored link
After many weeks of anticipation SlingPlayer Mobile for the iPhone has now finally been released.

The good news is that despite claims from Sling Media telling us you would need to upgrade your Slingbox to work with the new iPhone app, it will work with older Slingboxes such as the Slingbox Classic although Sling Media will not support these.

The bad news is SlingPlayer Mobile currently works on a Wi-Fi connection only. No 3G connections!

At $30 the SlingPlayer mobile app is not cheap but on initial testing the quality does look very good on the iPhone’s small 3.5 inch screen. Below is a screenshot from BBC news this morning.

One disappointing thing was the image didn’t fill the whole screen. Whether this is because we were connected to a Slingbox Classic we don’t know. Anyone tried this yet with a Slingbox Solo or PRO?

Application Description

Watch and control your home TV and DVR on your iPhone or iPod touch!

When connected to a Slingbox Solo, Pro, or Pro HD, the award winning SlingPlayer Mobile software will play anything you can see on your TV at home on your iPhone or iPod touch. Now you can change channels, control your DVR and watch your favourite shows right on your iPhone. View and control video sources such as:

- Cable set-top box and DVR
- Satellite set-top box and DVR
- Telco /IPTV set-top box and DVR
- Basic Cable
- Digiatl Over-the Air Broadcasts (Slingbox PRO-HD only)
- Tivo
- Apple TV
- Home Security Cameras

SlingPlayer Mobile for the iPhone only supports streaming over a Wi-Fi connection at this time.

* The Slingbox Classic, AV and Tuner are not supported for use with SlingPlayer Mobile on the iPhone and iPod Touch, although they may stream with some configurations.
