TV junkies will be very excited to learn we just received word that SlingPlayer will soon have an iPad optimized app! SlingPlayer is a way to sling (send) TV content to your computers, phones, and soon the iPad. It works by hooking up a SlingPlayer box to your DVD player, cable or satellite box. The box then communicates with your devices through apps. It is a great solution for watching live TV on the go. Below is a forwarded email we received from Anne Hohenberger, Pinnacle's PR Manager when asking about an iPad app:
Hi! iPad is *right* around the corner. We’re waiting on Apple to release iOS 4.2… please stay tuned. Thanks for your email. Kind regards, Anne HohenbergerFor many, the iPad has become a TV replacement. SlingPlayer on the iPad will be a huge step forward. Currently iPad users can use the iPhone app upscaled to enjoy their SlingPlayers on the go. This isn't ideal, but will work until the iPad app arrives.
