SlingPlayer Mobile now available for BlackBerry

Little did you know when you purchased your Slingbox and BlackBerry that soon these two devices would be a match made in heaven. Sling Media now brings you SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerrys. If you are unfamiliar with Slingbox, basically it’s a box that allows you to watch your TV, DVR or DVD player over the Internet. Sling Media announced earlier in December that it was going to make the SlingPlayer available to the public in beta form on Dec. 30. Looks like they are a company who stands by its word, because today the download is available for the following BlackBerrys:

  • Pearl 8120
  • Pearl Flip 8220
  • Curve 8320
  • Curve 8820
  • Curve 8900
  • Bold 900

Unofficially, the EDGE-only 8100, 8300, 8310, and 8810 also will work. All models must have firmwire revision 4.5 or later to install SlingPlayer Mobile. So get out your BlackBerrys and start watching!
