Sling pursuing SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone

Sling Media is currently examining its options for development of a version of its SlingPlayer Mobile application for the iPhone and iPod touch, according to statements made to iLounge. Dave Zatz of Sling Media told iLounge in an email, “We were definitely one of those 100,000 who downloaded the iPhone SDK, which we’re currently evaluating. We know it’s a hot platform and we’ll see what our options are.” Sling Media CEO Blake Krikorian has previously said that he had spoken with Apple about the possibility of streaming to the iPhone, stating the company “would love to support” the platform. The company has also previously confirmed that it is working on making its streaming products compatible with the Apple TV.

I just wanna be able to stream my iTunes library to my iPhone over my LAN, just like I can on my Apple TV.

I can’t wait for SlingPlayer for iPhone to drop. I will be buying it on day one. Sling makes great products and am patiently (ok, maybe not) waiting for 2.0. It took a while for them to finally support the Mac, but the software is as good if not better than the Windows version. To Apple and Sling: Please make this software happen, and soon.

Wow, this would make my two favorite electronics even better.  If this comes out I will never put my iPod touch down.

I already have this capability with EyeTV and my iPod Touch! EyeTV streams any EyeTV video recording from a special EyeTV playlist to my Touch via WiFi on my home network OR remotely through a special URL. This works with an iPhone also.

These EyeTV videos plus my entire iTunes library also show up on my PS3 as a UPnP device. EyeTV installs special software making both possible.

I am also Slinging my AppleTV to a Sprint Treo 700p from a Slingbox Pro, plus Comcast Cable DVR. All work great!
