SlingPlayer Mobile for Android users ready for Tuesday
Whether you're a T.V. fan, a sports fan or just like to catch up with the latest news, SlingPlayer Mobile can now bring the programs on your home television right to the screen on your Android handset. Starting Tuesday, Android Markets in the U.S., the U.K., Switzerland, Spain, Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands will be offering the service for $29.99 U.S. dollars. Of course, that is only half the story as you have to have an internet connected SlingBox SOLO, PRO-HD, or PRO connected to your television at home.

With SlingPlayer Mobile, you will be able to watch live or recorded shows over 3G or Wi-Fi, schedule recordings on your DVR at home, pause, rewind or fast forward while you watch recorded shows and check out program guides to check when your favorite shows will be on. Besides Android, the service is also available over BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, webOS, Symbian devices and the iPhone/iPod Touch. A 30 day free trial is available through the source link, for all platforms except the iPhone/iPod Touch. Now you have no more excuses for falling behind on your favorite drama, missing the latest news or not watching on your DVR, that movie you have been dying to view. It is like having your living room television set in your pocket, bringing it wherever you go.
