Beta Sling Player for Mac

Users of the Slingbox line of media streaming hubs are no longer required to use a Windows PC or specific mobile phones to watch video away from their home, Sling Media announced today. A free public beta of Sling Player for Mac is now available for both American and Canadian editions of SlingPlayer, Sling Media's program for streaming Slingbox video through the Internet regardless of the device owner's location. The initial version is a Universal Binary but requires MacOS X 10.4 in the interests of a quick release, Sling says. Support for earlier versions of the OS as well as additional regions are expected in the future. The Slingbox devices themselves require either a router with Ethernet ports or a wireless bridge.
