Hands on the iPhone SlingPlayer 1.1


Sling continues evolving and improving their product line. This time up is their latest iPhone app for playback which has made some nice strides such as supporting 16×9, but the software still costs $30, a pretty hefty amount but worth it if you’re an iPhone owner and frequent sling-er.


Zatz Not Funny

Also new with v1.1 is true DISH STB integration, some of which I first saw demo-ed way back at CES. Instead of fumbling through a smaller version of a program guide or recorded content listings, the SlingPlayer “talks directly to the DISH Receiver” and will “draw a guide natively on the iPhone instead of just piping in a picture.”
