Two New Slingboxes UnveiledJuly 17, 2014
The Dish-owned Sling Media has announced the arrival of a pair of new Slingbox products. The two new boxes are the Slingbox M1 and Sling TV.
The M1 is a streamlined version of the standard Slingbox retailing for $149.99, while the Sling TV gives users access to their pay TV channels, while also turning the TV connected into a "smart" TV.
“Once again, Sling Media is totally redefining the ‘TV Anywhere’ experience with the introduction of the Slingbox M1 and SlingTV,” Michael Hawkey, senior vice president and general manager of Sling Media, said as part of the announcement.
“Customers interested in a no-compromise entertainment experience using the most popular devices will be delighted by the affordability and new features of the Slingbox M1. SlingTV completely enhances the living room TV experience with a visually stunning on TV user interface that takes ultimate advantage of social media data activity.”
The M1 arrives this month and the Sling TV in August.
