Sling Adapter for Dish Network
Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 07:00 AM
"Sling today Thursday rolled out the Sling Adapter as both one of its lowest cost TV streamers and its first dedicated to its partner Dish. Running solely through its USB connection, it shares the TV from any ViP 722 or 722k DVR over either a web browser or a mobile app. Viewers can steer the DVR alongside controlling channels."
Sweet, something for me to use that might actually work out ok. The icing on the cake would be for it to work with the NFL Channel's RedZone, and I don't see any reason why it won't. Sling is rolling out an updated iPad app soon, which will work with this device, but the current Dish App for the iPhone and iPod Touch [free on iTunes] is supposed to be compatible with this new device. I may have to keep Dish Network after all.
