Founded in 2004, Sling Media, Inc. is a different kind of consumer electronics company - one that's working to demystify convergence technologies and to create empowering experiences for the digital media consumer. The focus of Sling is to embrace - not replace - existing products and standards by enhancing them with hardware and software that make divergent technologies compatible and greatly improve the consumer experience. Because, after all, can't we all just get along?! Sling Media's first product, internationally acclaimed, Emmy award-winning Slingbox®, has literally transformed the way we are able to watch TV. Sling turns any Internet-connected PC, Mac, phone, or tablet into your home television. That means you can watch TV virtually anywhere in the world. Sling's innovative Slingplayer® software connects users on all types of computing platforms to their Sling device which then gives them complete control over their living room TV. Sling gives customers the ability to control any Audio/Video device including analog cable, a digital cable box, satellite receiver, digital video recorder (DVR) a DVD player or even a still video camera.
