Your TV on your Android handset – it costs for the privilege, though

SlingPlayer Review

by on July 3, 2010

There’s no doubting that SlingPlayer for Android was one of the most eagerly awaited apps for the mobile platform.

Windows Mobile Blackberry, Symbian and Palm users – and even those slaves to Apple and its iPhone – have been able to use SlingPlayer for a while now, watching their TV content on their mobile device without any problems.

But now the long wait is over and SlingPlayer is here and, thankfully, the app costs exactly the same as for any other format.

So, what do you get for your money? Well, simplicity is the key. Setup is a cinch and it will be no time that you will be watching your TV’s content on your phone.

With data charges being what they are, we would recommend when possible to use to Wi-Fi but you can also pipe your telly content through 3G.

The app is compatible with SOLO, PRO-HD, or PRO boxes and ran smoothly in our tests. We did get some jitter but the touchscreen options are impressive and intuitive.

It may be pricey, but this is one app which is worth every penny and well worth the long, long wait. That is if you have already forked out for a Slingbox, er, box.
