SlingPlayer Update Coming, Brings 3G Streaming To Non-US iPhones
A new update is ready for SlingPlayer that will enable 3G streaming for non-US iPhones if Apple approves the App.
If you’ve been following the recent controversy surrounding Apple’s ridiculous App Store rules then you surely know that one of the more popular Apps available, SlingPlayer, is limited to use over an active WiFi connection. However, the App was supposed to use both WiFi and 3G to stream content from a compatible SlingBox until AT&T stepped in and asked Apple not to approve the App as it would consume too much bandwidth. While Apple and AT&T have yet to allow a 3G compatible SlingBox, a version for iPhones outside of the US will be made available that brings the feature.
“The 1.1 update will be capable of showing 16 x 9 video to fill the entire screen of an iPhone or iPod touch. Additionally, the remote control interface has been updated and overall speed and response times have been improved. The added DISH Network support allows the app to connect directly to DISH hardware and pull guide information that can be easily searched within the app.”
Apple has yet to approve the update but it’s expected to maintain it’s $29.99 price tag.
