Sling CEO talks iPhone support

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.

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