Slingbox owners will soon be able to stream live TV through Facebook, and we've just had our first peek at the service.
Sling Media says it will offer a subscription service for Verizon's upcoming 4G smartphones.
Sling Media launches its SlingPlayer Mobile app for Windows Phone 7. The iPad Slingbox Player should be made available quite soon as well, reports claim.
Android-based smartphone owners have been clamoring for a version of SlingPlayer for some time now and last week the streaming software finally made its way to the platform.
New app lets Android smartphone owners with Slingbox devices watch live and recorded shows from their home TVs on their mobile phones.
Not surprisingly, Sling Media has a SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad in the works. However, it won't be available in April when the iPad launches.
After almost a year, the company is now allowing people to use the SlingPlayer app on the iPhone over its 3G wireless network.
You'll still have to cough up $30 to get the app, but at least you'll be able to watch videos over 3G. As it stands right now, you have to find a Wi-Fi hotspot. Crazy, right?
SlingPlayer Mobile for the iPhone works well, but it's severely limited by its Wi-Fi-only functionality.
Why some iPhone owners are grumbling about the long-awaited app from Sling Media; Craigslist closes down its Erotic Services section; Microsoft takes on the Wii with a motion camera for the Xbox 360; and more.
