Recent Slingbox Devices Updated with Support for AirPlay and Apple TV
And finally, Sling Media is pleased to formally announce AirPlay support for SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone and iPad. This feature gives Apple TV customers the ability to watch their home TV on a second TV inside the home (without needing an additional set top box) or on a remote TV. Slingbox 500, Slingbox 350, Slingbox PRO-HD and Slingbox SOLO customers can take advantage of this fully updated and supported feature.The company also announced that the Slingbox 500 will be updated with enhanced "My Media" features that enable Macs to access photos and videos from USB drives attached to the Slingbox, and that the SlingPlayer web client now contains support for OS X Mavericks and Safari 7. Sling Media also stated that it plans to enable iOS devices to access "My Media" content on the Slingbox 500 in the near future.
The Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 were both announced in October of last year, with the former including built-in Wi-Fi functionality and integrated IR blasters, and the latter acting as a lower-cost option that also includes 1080p streaming for improved video quality. The Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 retail for $299.99 and $179.99 respectively, and can be both purchased through the official Slingbox website.
