Sling gets two new boxes, sticks with an old idea

Sling Media is launching two new devices that iterate on its original proposition of place shifting, streaming your TV signal from your cable box to mobile devices and other screens. But how innovative is this, and how well does it really work?

Simple.TV: a combination DVR & Slingbox for the cord cutter set

One of the more interesting devices to come out of CES will be Simple.TV, combining some of the best capabilities of TiVo DVRs and Sling streaming set-top boxes. The box, which will be released in Spring 2012, will cost $149 and be aimed at cord cutters.

Slingbox arrives on Google TV

Sling Media’s SlingPlayer app is now available on Google TV, making it possible for Logitech Revue owners to access Slingbox streams on their device. The launch of the Google TV app comes a month after SlingBox debuted a dedicated app for the Boxee Box.
