Slinging in HD - Slingbox PRO-HD
The next generation of Sling Media's Slingbox just hit the stores and online retailers. The Slingbox PRO-HD will stream HD content, from almost any source: over the air, cable, satellite, or DVR. It slings the signal to a computer in your house. And, it gets better.
If you've got a high-speed broadband connection of 1.5 Megabits or more, it can stream your Slingbox to anywhere you've got another high-speed network.
Blake Krikorian, co-founder and CEO of Sling Media said, "Slingbox PRO-HD marks a giant leap forward in hardware and software development from Sling Media including the powerful encoding enhancements that are a part of SlingStream 2.0. Because of this, Slingbox PRO-HD delivers picture quality at all resolutions that is truly amazing."
SlingPlayer has been improved too.
SlingPlayer 2.0 for Windows is available for download right now at www.slingmedia.com. It features a live buffer with pause and rewind. There's a new electronic programming guide to see what's on your TV without causing an onscreen guide to have to be viewed on the home set.

For just $299.99, I might need to get one of these Slingbox PRO-HDs soon. I can watch all my favorite shows, in HD, on any computer, anywhere? Now I'll never get any work done. -Leslie Shapiro
