SlingPlayer Mobile for Android Now Available

Posted Wed Jun 23, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

If you've got a Slingbox and an Android phone, $29 and a quick download will enable an impressive remote viewing feature.

By this point, you know the drill with the Slingbox. It lets you access your television from virtually anywhere you go. The new Android application takes that a step further.

"The full spectrum of viewing, including local channels and sports teams, video on demand, pay per view and even control of their home DVR, is available to the growing number of people moving to Android," says Sling Media's John Gilmore.

Like the iPhone app, the SlingPlayer Mobile for Android lets you watch TV anywhere you've got a 3G, 4G or WiFi connection. You can watch live television, access your DVR and even order pay-per-view programs.

But it seems that the SlingPlayer Mobile for Android has gotten a few tweaks for the new platform. "We're committed to the Android platform," says Gilmore, "and users of our new and improved SlingPlayer Mobile application will experience one of the most complete mobile television experiences available today."
