SlingPlayer is Coming!

SlingPlayer in the Approval Process!

Yes, the long awaiting Slingbox iPhone Application is undergoing the approval process.

What is SlingPlayer?

First visit, and you can see how great this application is going to be! For people who went from Windows Mobile devices to an iPhone and lost this ability to have your TV at the palm of your hands, well, it will soon be over! You can start to gain more pounds and regain your couch potato status, anywhere and everywhere!

Of course, for those starting out to invest in this, it’s not as cheap as the application that ORB ( provides but really, comparing the two is like apples and oranges. With the Sling application, you are required to purchase their Slingbox which attaches to your cable box which can be overwhelming due to its price tag but that’s technology for you.

For those who have been using it for years, you know what instant gratification it has given you to never miss a recording or never miss a TV program.

It’s not for the faint of heart and I wouldn’t have suggested this 3 to 4 years ago when Sling Media first roll out this idea. Never mind the fact that we were still living on the “Edge” network days but with 3g, wifi and the ever evolving rumors of higher speed access today, the streaming is smooth as butter. Don’t blame me if it cut’s in and out for you, blame that on ATT’s spotty service at times but I can say 90% of the time, it is going to impress.

Quick Update: Well, all good things come to an end. This story has been debunked. We will have to wait a bit or a lot longer. Back to the drawing board. I guess it was too good to be true!
