Slingplayer Coming to Android Phones

Finally, the much anticipated Slingplayer application is coming to the Android platform this summer.  For those of you who have not heard of the Slingplayer, it is a device that connects to your cable/satellite receiver and redirects the signal over the internet and delivers it directly to your mobile phone or desktop computer. This technology has been around for a couple of years and was released about 9 months ago on the iPhone.  It works well and you can even watch your on-demand channels.  It’s as if you were sitting in front of your TV.

Slingplayer works on both wifi and 3G.  The slingbox will run you around $200-250 depending on whether or not you want it in HD. There are no costs associated with redirecting the signal.  Just the cost of the slingbox, your cable/satellite provider charges, and the cost to purchase the Android application.
