After having received so many SlingBox cakes
for our second birthday
, we figured a
lot of you would want to know that SlingPlayer Mobile for
in now available to download for free as part of a public beta program. The SlingPlayer software --
which lets broadband-enabled WinMo devices stream live and recorded TV from a remote SlingBox -- works as a 30-day
trial, after which time it can be purchased for $30 (although it's free with any new 'Box prior to April 26th).
Despite the fact that wireless carriers seem
lukewarm about the new service
, until people start getting busted for violating
their contracts' provisions on data usage
, SlingBox owners are about to get their money's worth and then some on
those $15 all-you-can-eat PowerVision packages.
