The SlingPlayer Android app, with optimization specifically for Honeycomb tablets, has finally arrived.
While SlingPlayer Mobile app has been available for Android for quite some time now, the company posted a demo video showing an app running on a Motorola Xoom back in September. Available now on the Android Market, the SingPlayer Android app allows Slingbox owners to stream TV directly to their tablets.
In addition the app features a new program guide, which is designed to help users browse content and change channels with less confusion. The Honeycomb specific app can be purchased for the same $30 price tag as its mobile counterparts.
The company also promised that the SlingPlayer app for Android handsets will continue to function on tablets in “compatibility mode,” without extra charges, though the resolution quality will not be the same as that found on a Honeycomb-based device.
