Sling Media has launched Slingbox M1, which features WiFi connectivity, in the UK and Europe.
First introduced in the US last year, it is being offered with a UK manufacturer’s suggested retail price of £129.
Slingbox M1 has a number of features including dual-band 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi connectivity and Ethernet port; quick and easy set-up and playback via PC/Mac desktop apps as well as iPhone, iPad and Android phone apps; watch and control live TV on a tablet, smartphone, PC or Mac; play and schedule PVR recordings; watch on a second TV anywhere via Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Google Chromecast or Roku; component and composite input/output; and international power supply, which supports 230/110V and has changeable pins to support both UK and European plugs.
It also does not require the payment of monthly fees.
Commenting on the launch, Michael Hawkey, senior VP and general manager of Sling Media, said: “Given its strong reception in the US, we are excited to introduce the Slingbox M1 into the European market.
“The Slingbox M1 sets a new standard for ease of set-up and use, while delivering incredible value for the pay-TV satellite subscribers that we have always targeted with our products and services. With a Slingbox M1 that has been completely localised for customers, we’re delivering the most affordable Slingbox packed with the most robust set of features that we believe will significantly expand the mobile TV and video market.”
