Sling Player Coming Soon to an iPhone Near You

The iPhone is on its way to becoming a premier media device. We all know that it plays music very well, and that you can watch movies that you buy or rent from the iTunes store. But sooner than later, streaming live television will be hitting iPhones everywhere.

The media streaming technology Sling will soon be coming to Macs and iPhones everywhere. This week at Macworld 2009, Sling Media announced both the SlingPlayer for Mac HD and the Sling Media’s SlingPlayer for iPhone. The iPhone app will allow you to stream media directly from your Slingbox through Wi-Fi, 3G or even an Edge connection.

The application should be available soon; it is to be released in the first quarter of this year. For more information and a video of the iPhone player in action, visit the Sling homepage.
