Something makes us feel as though the FCC is this rather strict disciplinarian, where every company, no matter how large they are and how much cash they have stashed away in their coffers, are still at the FCC’s mercy simply because they are the ones who give the nod as to whether a device will be able to be released to the mass market or not.. EchoStar’s Sling Extender aka the Sling Receiver 300, has just made its way to the FCC and gained its approval. The device was caught with Dish Network branding in the pictures, clearly pointing towards the hope for Dish Network users to use the device to stream video across their network. Connectivity’s the name of the game with the Sling Extender since it comes with virtually every kind of connection you can think of at the moment, ranging from composite to component, HDMI and digital audio. It will also be able to hook up to your home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, and stream HD video should there be enough bandwidth available. A mounting bracket makes it easy for you to mount the Sling Extender to the back of a flat screen TV. Just like you, we too, are curious to know just how much the Sling Extender will cost and when will it be available.
