    SlingPlayer coming to BlackBerry phones

    Advertisement



    Making good on a promise made at CES 2008, Sling Media has announced that a beta version of the company's SlingPlayer Mobile software will be available on select BlackBerry smartphones starting December 30.

    BlackBerry users who own the Bold, Curve 8900 & 8320, 8820, Pearl Flip 8220, and Pearl 8120 will be able to stream video to their smartphone using a Slingbox device.

    The download requires BlackBerry device software 4.5 or higher and will be free for a limited time. We'd imagine once the beta lifts, all users will be required to pay the one-time fee of $30.

    Sling Media is recommending a Wi-Fi connection for optimal viewing performance on some of the BlackBerry models (that support it); otherwise, a high-speed data connection will be needed.

    Not sure if your device is compatible? Point your BlackBerry browser to http://mobile.slingmedia.com/go/bbcheck and let Sling Media tell you if it is.

    Wow, no love for Verizon - 8330 or 8130 anyone? Hopefully the Storm version will come out soon - can't get a better screen for watching mobile TV!

    i've been "beta testing" (shhh its supposed to be a secret) for a little over two months now and they have made a LOT of progress from what i have seen, its a very cool app so far and i think it has been long overdue......
