SlingLink Turbo in Works

Sling Media is developing its own line of networking gear to complement its media hubs, according to a forum discovery. The SlingLink Turbo will be a simple powerline adapter meant to attach the company's own Slingbox tuners, video game consoles, or almost any living room device to an existing network without requiring either a lengthy cable or a Wi-Fi bridge. Plugging the base unit into a router and a smaller bridge into each device is the only requirement, Sling says. The unannounced device is capable of up to an 85Mbps connection and will further work with rival companies' hardware.

A release of the adapter is imminent, with an official unveiling anticipated for February 27th, when a complete bridge and switch combination will sell for $150 through Amazon and other stores. The price of an individual bridge is still unknown. [via Sling Community]
