Sling Media Launches Slingbox

Sling Media has finally launched their much anticipated Slingbox that allows users to access their home television service from anywhere in the world -- The Slingbox enables consumers to watch their own satellite, terrestrial or cable television service or personal video recorder programming, using any internet-connected Windows XP laptop or desktop personal computer. Aiming to provide access to television anywhere, anytime, the Slingbox device allows users to placeshift their viewing, in addition to the timeshift possible with a digital video recorder. The Slingbox is a distinctively designed, brick-shaped product that is simply connected to an existing video source in the home and a home network router. The Slingbox redirects a single stream of audio and video to a personal computer running the SlingPlayer software application. The remote player could be anywhere in the home, or, with a broadband internet connection, anywhere in the world. �The Slingbox clearly defines a new era for television viewing,� said Blake Krikorian, Sling Media co-founder and CEO. �Our goal is to enhance the TV-viewing experience by allowing people easy access to their living room television content, no matter their location: around the house or around the world.�
