Sling Media annouces support for Blackberry devices

January 4th, 2008

slingplayer_blackberrypearl8120.PNGSoon you’ll be able to watch your Slingbox on your Blackberry device. SlingMedia will be demoing this on a the Blackberry 8120 at CES next week.

It should be available later this year for 29.99.

Hopefully your carrier has a decent Blackberry data plan so you can make use of this.

They also announced that Slingbox PRO-HD which is a Slingbox that can stream 1080i video and 5.1 surround sound. It will work with their SlingCatcher device (something that lets you watch a Slingbox on a TV so you don’t need a computer or phone). It’s meant more for home use though you can use it outside of home if you have a super fast network connection. The Slingbox PRO-HD will be available Q3 2008.

    This is great. It seems we’ll be able to stream video before we’re able to stream audio.
