Sling launches iPhone Slingplayer in Europe

by Volker Weber

Sling Media, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation (NASDAQ: SATS), today announced the availability of the SlingPlayer Mobile Wi-Fi application for iPhone and iPod touch customers across Europe. The announcement came at the IBC conference in Amsterdam. The SlingPlayer Mobile Wi-Fi application is now available in 16 additional countries - including France, Germany, Spain and Italy. The application was first made available to iPhone and iPod touch customers in the US, Canada and the UK in May 2009.

"We are disappointed that Apple has not yet approved the 3G version of the SlingPlayer Mobile application for iPhone and iPod customers outside the US," said John Gilmore, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sling Media.

I have tested a 3G-enabled iPhone Slingplayer and it works well. So does the player on my BlackBerry Bold. The ball is in Apple's court.
