Following a panel discussion at NAB this week, Sling Media CEO Blake Krikorian said he has spoken with Apple about the possibility of streaming to the iPhone, claiming his company “would love to support” the device. “I think the question for them is going to be, how are they going to phase the (iPhone) out?” Krikorian said of Apple. “There’s been some talk about whether it’s going to be a closed device or…open, or whether they’ll phase it (out), so I think it’s going to be up to them to see when (streaming) might be available. But I cannot comment any more than that.” Last week Sling confirmed that it is working on making the SlingBox compatible with the Apple TV.

Why would Apple phase out their most popular unreleased product ever?  The iPhone is going to be a smash hit, that guy is smoking crack.

I don’t believe he means phase out as in discontinuing it, but rather add capabilities in phases.

I still don’t understand the benefit o having sligbox capabiliyt with the apple TV. Could someone explain that to me? I mean, they’re both attached to your TV. Why would it be beneficial? What am I missing? Thanks.
