Despite seemingly having kept a low profile recently, Sling Media is back with a new Slingbox to provide live and recorded HD content to smartphones, tablets, laptops and connected devices.
The new Slingbox 350 is a completely redesigned retail product from the EchoStar subsidiary, replacing the Slingbox SOLO and joining the Slingbox PRO-HD as the two models available in the European market. It is designed to tap into demand by European consumers eager to find new ways to watch television but who, says the company, may be confused by the many options in what it calls a highly fragmented TV anywhere market. Slingbox asserts that only it can deliver consumers’ entire living room television experience, regardless of where they are and without additional subscription fees.
“Slingbox is the best way to extend the entire living room television experience anywhere, and we’re very pleased to bring this new model to European customers,” explained Michael Hawkey, Sling Media’s vice president and general manager. “We’ve redesigned Slingbox from the ground up, creating one of the highest-performing products on the market. With this new product introduction, Sling Media continues to evolve and disrupt the category we created.”
Slingbox 350 will go on sale in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark from retailers at a suggested retail price of £129/€179.
