Sling Media has just announced the availability of its SlingPlayer application for Android tablets running Honeycomb 3.0 or later. SlingPlayer lets users watch broadcast and cable TV content on their mobile devices wherever they have an internet connection.
The application lets Slingbox owners extend their living room TV experience to their tablets and takes advantage of the higher performance, screen resolutions and video quality the latest Android devices can deliver. New to this release of SlingPlayer is a revamped program guide that makes it easy to browse content choices while continuing to watch TV. Familiar custom on-screen remote controls closely mimic the same experience the user has from the couch at home.
The app will work when connected to a Slingbox SOLO or PRO-HD. The app allows the user to change channels, control the DVR, and watch the content they want to see from anywhere they can get a web connection. The SlingPlayer app for Android Honeycomb tablets is available in the Android Market now for $29.99, ¥2600, £20.99 or 23.99 Euros.
