As announced earlier, finally here we go. After some weeks of non-public Beta testing, followed by a public Beta test, Sling Media today announced that its award-winning SlingPlayer Mobile software client is now compatible with Microsoft's new Windows Mobile 6 operating system. SlingPlayer Mobile gives Slingbox owners the ability to watch and control their home TV from a network-enabled Windows Mobile powered device. With today's announcement SlingPlayer Mobile is now compatible with devices that run Windows Mobile 6 Standard, Professional and Classic editions as well as Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition. SlingPlayer Mobile is available for download from Sling Media's U.S., Canadian and UK web sites, which can all be accessed from www.slingmedia.com.

"Windows Mobile 6 is powering a whole slew of new, feature-rich multimedia smartphones, and Sling Media is happy to announce SlingPlayer Mobile support for this next generation mobile platform," said Blake Krikorian, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Sling Media. "SlingPlayer Mobile is one of the only applications on the market today that, when combined with a Slingbox, gives customers their full living room television experience on a mobile phone, including the ability to control a DVR. We look forward to continuing our support for Windows Mobile-based products, providing customers with the best possible mobile TV experience available."

"Windows Mobile helps people stay connected to the information they care about whether they are traveling or staying close to home," said John O'Rourke, general manager at Microsoft Corp. "New features in Windows Mobile 6 like support for wide screen viewing will offer SlingPlayer Mobile customers an enhanced mobile TV experience for viewing their favorite TV programs."

SlingPlayer Mobile is available for U.S. customers from Sling Media's web site. The retail price of the application is US$ 29.99. For Canadian customers, the SlingPlayer Mobile is available from here. The retail price is CAD$ 34.99.
SlingPlayer Mobile is available for UK customers from here and can be purchased for £19.99 GBP, including VAT.
A localized Japanese version will be available in the weeks to come from Sling Media's web site.
As always, all versions of SlingPlayer Mobile include a 30 day free trial.

Customers who have already purchased SlingPlayer Mobile and are upgrading to Windows Mobile 6 need to request a new registration key from Sling Media after upgrading from Windows Mobile 5 to Windows Mobile 6. They can do so by contacting Sling Media customer care at http://support.slingmedia.com or by calling (877) 467-5464.
