SlingPlayer by Sling Media Coming to iPad?


If you’re unfamiliar with Sling Media, the service turns any Internet-connected PC, Mac or smartphone into your home television. Meaning you can watch TV virtually anywhere in the world.

Today, MacRumors is reporting that the company may have future plans to launch “higher-resolution television streaming services” for the iPad.

Sling was recently caught on record as saying:

When it makes a noticeable difference in quality, we will definitely provide higher resolution streaming. The iPad is a good example of a device where we are hard at work on this, but unfortunately it won’t be there at the April launch.

Since the SlingPlayer Mobile iPhone app was approved in May last year, and with the recent announcement of the iPad in January, rumors have been flying as to if or when the software would make its way to the new device.

If you cast your minds back, Sling didn’t get as much of as easy ride as they would have hoped though, with the SlingPlayer Mobile being initially limited to streaming data over Wi-Fi due to AT&T data policies.

Last month however, AT&T did a complete u-turn, lifting this limit and allowing the 3G enabled version of the software to enter the App Store.

Will the software make it to the iPad? .. Who knows!
