SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry exits beta

By on
Sling Media has announced that its SlingPlayer Mobile for Blackberry application has moved out of public beta and is now available for download. The official release is priced at $29.99 with a 30-day free trial and you will, of course, need a Slingbox connected to your television source to watch and control streamed video directly from the BlackBerry smartphone.


Both 3G and Wi-Fi connections are supported on the BlackBerry Bold while the rest of compatible devices (which doesnít include the Storm) are limited to Wi-Fi only. Those interested can download the SlingPlayer Mobile client from mobile.slingmedia.com directly from their smartphone browser. Also, in a related announcement, Sling revealed that it has submitted the finalized iPhone version to the App Store as well and is currently waiting for approval.
