Sling Media outs web app for Logitech Revue

Sling Media has finally released a web app that allows Logitech Revue Google TV users to access its Slingbox service. We sampled the feature nearly one year ago at CES, and a beta showed up late in May that allowed users to watch Slingbox content in other rooms via streaming. Users can access the SlingPlayer app from Google Spotlight and use it to change channels, browse the program guide, and watch or schedule recordings on a connected DVR.

Users need to have a Slingbox Solo or Slingbox Pro-HD updated to the latest firmware and an HDTV connected to Logitech Revue set-top in order to make use of the app. HD streaming required bandwidth speeds of 2Mbps or higher while SD needs 600Kbps or higher.

Sales of the Revue were slower than expected, prompting the company to admit it was too early for such a device and drop its price to just $99, or a third of its original sticker, before cancelling it altogether. [via GigaOM]
