SlingPlayer Mobile now available in Android Market
You saw it demoed last month, and now it's time to get SlingPlayer Mobile on your HTC EVO 4G to see all the slinging action in person. The app has been downloaded less than 50 times so far, so it was literally just added to Android Market.
Snippets from the press release:
"We're committed to the Android platform, and users of our new and improved SlingPlayer Mobile application will experience one of the most complete mobile television experiences available today," said Sling Media Senior Vice President and General Manager John Gilmore. "Now 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."
SlingPlayer Mobile for Android features faster startup and control response times, and it works among a variety of Android-based mobile phones in the market today. It also has a new user interface that gives quick-touch access to the most critical remote controls and recently viewed channels.
You'll need a Slingbox hooked up at home to be able to make use of the new app, so don't shell out $29.99 and expect to suddenly be able to watch live TV or access/control your DVR!
