Sling Media is offering their SlingPlayer Mobile software in Beta form. For current SlingBox owners, it will allow them to watch and control their home TV from any network-enabled modile phone or PDA that is running Windows Mobile. A version that will run on Windows Mobile Smartphone based devices will be available in the next month.
I don’t know how many of you out there plan to use your handheld devices to watch shows (I know I can’t, but maybe I am in the minority here). BUt hte ability to control your SlingBox would seem worthwhile.
The software will sell for $29.99 starting on April 26, but if you purchase and register a SlingBox before that date you will not be charged. There are no recurring fee’s for either the software or SlingBox itself.
