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.

AT&T Unfixes 3G TV Redirection "Mistake"

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Talk" @ 09:00 AM

"AT&T on Wednesday quietly updated its cellphone terms of service to again potentially ban devices like the Slingbox on its network. Having initially pulled earlier changes in what was described as "an error," the carrier has again modified the terms to specifically prevent "redirecting television signals for viewing on Personal Computers.""

The obvious question that this change of TOS brings up is, "What exactly can we expect when the Slingbox app is released?" Honestly, who knows, but considering how long it's taking for the damn thing to be approved, you never know what AT&T thinks about Sling's app. It's also worth noting that AT&T does have a mobile TV product available on some of its phones, so they may just be pigeonholing you into their product.

I hope that isn't the case.

Sling Media to Intro Sling Player for iPhone Soon

"Remember that proof-of-concept you saw way back in June of last year? You know, that one involving SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone? Here at Macworld, Sling Media is doing its darnedest to take the spotlight away from the looming Apple keynote by announcing that said app is almost ready for consumption. It'll be demonstrating a functional version in San Francisco, and it's planning to submit the software to Apple for certification sometime this quarter."

This is something I've been waiting for since I got my first gen iPhone in 2007. The Slingbox is an awesome device and Sling has done an amazing job of getting the software out for a really large swath of devices, so we shouldn't really be surprised that they're going to come through on the iPhone; with that many users, it would be a missed opportunity of epic proportions if they didn't! Anyone else a Slingbox owner and looking forward to this as much as I am?

Update: Video goodness of the client in action after the jump. Read more...
