The popular media app, SlingPlayer, is now on sale for $14.99 for the iPad and iPhone. This is not a universal download so you will need to purchase each app separately. Earlier this week Slingbox announced two new boxes that let users enjoy 1080p HD streaming on their smartphones, tablets, and computers. The two new boxes are the $179.99 Slingbox 350 and the $299.99 Slingbox 500, which both support 1080p HD streaming based on available bandwidth. Don’t forget about the deal we posted a couple days ago, the Slingbox SOLO SB260 for only 97.99.
With a Slingbox at home and SlingPlayer on your iPhone or iPod touch, enjoy live or recorded TV over a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi connection (the iPod touch only supports Wi-Fi). If you like TV, it’s hard not to smile when you take control of your TV and DVR right from your iPhone’s stunning display.
Flip through your local channels with the virtual remote control. Pause, fast-forward, rewind and even schedule DVR recordings. Watch video on demand and pay-per-view programs. Never miss another show or game – whether you’re in the back yard, out to lunch or on the other side of the world. It’s your TV. Don’t let it be trapped in your living room. Set it free – with your iPhone! (Slingbox sold separately)
