Although it won't be ready for this week's iPad launch, Sling Media is working hard on a mobile version of its SlingPlayer optimized for iPad. The new version will take full advantage of the iPad and provide higher-quality streaming video.
For those iPad users with a Slingbox, content can be streamed from your cable or satellite box over a broadband Internet connection. The video stream can then be watched using SlingPlayer software from any computer or compatible mobile device. Sling Media made the news recently with the release of a 3G-streaming version of the SlingPlayer for iPhone.
