Sling Media releases SlingPlayer for iPad.


It has long been rumored that Sling Media has been working an iPad version of its SlingPlayer Mobile application, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the app, it “slings” television content from a set-top box connected to a user’s television to computers and mobile devices.

The SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad is now available in the App Store, however it does come with a price tag of $29.99, which is the same as for the iPhone version, even though the iPad app offers higher-resolution video than its iPhone counterpart.

The whole program has been overhauled to use iPad’s intuitive native interface, and a recent channels feature puts a viewer’s recent channels at his fingertips.
Currently the software is compatible with Slingbox SOLO and PRO-HD set-top boxes. There are several cool features of the app, such as the ability change channels, control your DVR, and of course watch shows over Wi-Fi and 3G.

For those interested the app can be downloaded from iTunes here.
