Great news for those of you with Boxee Box set tops – live TV is finally available on the service. Boxee has just announced that the SlingPlayer app, which was teased earlier this year, is now available on the Boxee Box. SlingPlayer will allow any TV connected to a Boxee Box to play live and recorded content from your SlingBox. With SlingBox and a Boxee Box, you essentially have a second cable box with no monthly fees no matter where you are. Pretty cool, and it’s much cheaper than investing in another cable subscription.
The SlingPlayer app for the Boxee Box is compatible with the Sling Solo and Pro-HD and will let users: control their cable box/satellite receiver/DVR or DVD player from anywhere in the world, program their DVR and access DVR content, stream programming in 1080i to Boxee on top of all the content you can already get on the web with your Boxee Box. Head here for more information.
