yet available, Sling Media announced the upcoming release of its
for PC which will includes
last year's announced Clip+Sling functionality, allowing Slingbox
customers to "grab" clips of their favorite television moments and instantly
share them online. Additionally, SlingPlayer 2.0 incorporates an electronic
program guide that displays a customer's television channel lineup and
programming. Last, but not least, SlingPlayer 2.0 incorporates a 60 minute video
buffer that allows local pause, rewind, and fast forward transport controls.
It's not yet known which of the SlingPlayer 2.0 features will make it to the
player (for Windows Mobile, Symbian, Palm an/or BlackBerry)
but the 60 minutes video buffer would be quite cool (even if I think you will
need at least 8 GB of free memory), as well as the EPG and the Clip+Sling
functionality or to make it sort: all of them.
SlingPlayer 2.0 will be released in Q1 2008 and as with all SlingPlayers for
PC, also this update will be available at at no cost to Slingbox owners.
