SlingPlayer Mobile coming to BlackBerry

Sling Media has announced that it will release SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry later this year. The latest mobile client will be shown off next week at CES running on a BlackBerry Pearl 8120. It will require a 3G or Wi-Fi connection.

“SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry has been a top customer request since we launched the original Slingbox Classic in 2005, and being a BlackBerry addict myself I am particularly excited about this announcement,” said Blake Krikorian, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Sling Media. “Combining the best of breed email device with the ability to watch and control your living room TV is a killer combo.”

Like versions for other mobile devices, it will be available for USD$29.99.

Sling Media will also unveil the Slingbox PRO-HD which will offer multiple inputs and outputs, including digital audio and a digital (ATSC/QAM) tuner, the ability to stream up to 1080i and 5.1 surround sound. It will be available in Q3 for USD$399.99.
