SlingPlayer Mac gives Apple TV control

SlingPlayer Mac

Sling Media today launched the finished 1.0 version of SlingPlayer for Mac, a new version which adds controls unique to any version of the software. Designed to play content on a computer streamed from a Slingbox attached to a TV, the finished Mac version includes not only support for controlling cable boxes, DVRs, and other general media receivers but also Apple-specific devices. For the first time, SlingPlayer can control the Apple TV and play its content from any broadband Internet connection, accessing virtually the entire home iTunes library while away. The inaugural edition of the software also allows users to commandeer other devices that use the Apple Remote, including the Front Row interface on recent Macs and music from an iPod connected through an iPod Hi-Fi or Universal Dock.

Although otherwise feature-equivalent to the Windows version, SlingPlayer for Mac also fits Apple's Human Interface Guidelines to stay in line with the Mac OS X look and feel. Version 1.0 demands either an Intel- or PowerPC-based system running Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

    Bad Link?

    This link brings you to the BETA version. Is this a cache issue, or is there really a final version available for d/l?
