Soon iPhone users will have another cool feature to shove in your face—the magic of Slingbox.
The company just announced that they are working on a version of the SlingPlayer software that will deliver live and recorded TV on the iPhone and iPod touch.
Just like the bigger version, you start by connecting your Slingbox to your main cable or satellite box. From there, you can access everything on your system via an on-screen remote and a web connection. If you travel a lot, you can convince yourself that it’s a necessity; it’s that addicting.
At some point, the software will be available through the iTunes App Store. Unfortunately, there’s no release date yet.
Of course, I worry about the picture quality—between the tiny screen and the Wi-Fi. Gizmodo is showing off the software in all of its glory, on a “jailbroken” iPhone. It doesn’t have all of the features that the final release will sport, but it makes me salivate at the possibilities to come.
