You may remember we covered the SlingBox Windows Media Player before. Simply put, it lets you watch and control your TV and decoder boxes from any web-enabled device and now from your Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Smartphone too.
Unlike Orb, which lets you watch media on your home PC, the SlingBox sits on your TV at home and beams the necessary remote commands to your TV, decoder or DVD player aswell as streaming it to your device. The announcement today of SlingPlayer™ Mobile as a beta means that you can now watch your home TV anywhere. This new software will run on all Pocket PC devices, with a Smartphone version due within the next month.
