SlingPlayer Mobile Compatible With Windows Mobile

    June 21, 2007

Sling Media said today that its SlingPlayer Mobile software is now compatible with Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6 system.

SlingPlayer Mobile lets Slingbox users watch and control their home TV from a network-enabled Windows Mobile device.

"Windows Mobile 6 is powering a whole slew of new, feature-rich multimedia smartphones, and Sling Media is happy to announce SlingPlayer Mobile support for this next generation mobile platform," said Blake Krikorian, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Sling Media.

"SlingPlayer Mobile is one of the only applications on the market today that, when combined with a Slingbox, gives customers their full living room television experience on a mobile phone, including the ability to control a DVR. We look forward to continuing our support for Windows Mobile-based products, providing customers with the best possible mobile TV experience available."

SlingPlayer Mobile can be found on the company’s Web site and retails for $29.99. A localized Japanese version will be available in the upcoming weeks. All versions come with a 30-day free trial.

"Windows Mobile helps people stay connected to the information they care about whether they are traveling or staying close to home," said John O’Rourke, general manager at Microsoft Corp.

"New features in Windows Mobile 6 like support for wide screen viewing will offer SlingPlayer Mobile customers an enhanced mobile TV experience for viewing their favorite TV programs."
