Sling Introduces Slingbox M1 And SlingTV

slingbox_infrontof_slingtv_hiresFor those who would love to be able to access their cable or satellite box from any device, such as a computer, tablet, smartphone, and so on, you might be interested to learn that Sling Media has officially announced several additions to their Sling family in the form of the Slingbox M1 and the SlingTV.

Starting with the Slingbox M1, this is an entry-level device from Sling and will retail for $149. The device essentially replaces the company’s Slingbox 350 from 2012 and given that it has been two years, we reckon that it does deserve an upgrade. The Slingbox M1 will be both smaller and faster than its predecessor, and will come with integrated WiFi and Ethernet.

stv_tvNext up is the SlingTV which is essentially a rebranded version of the Sling 500. According to the company, the internals of the SlingTV will remain the same as the Sling 500, but the main differences would be the fact that the SlingTV will feature updated software. The update software will now overlay a new on-screen TV guide on top of the interface and will come with content recommendations, Rotten Tomatoes ratings, filters, episode guides, and so on.

The idea of the new SlingTV, according to the company, is to turn your existing TV into a smart TV without actually having to purchase a new TV set. Instead all you’d have to do is buy the SlingTV which will retail for $299. If you’d like to learn more or purchase either device, head on over to Sling’s website for the details.
