SlingPlayer app gets video out support

If you’re rocking a Slingbox along with the SlingPlayer on your iOS device, you’re going to want to head straight to the App Store and update your applications.

Earlier this week, Sling Media updated the SlingPlayer to included video out capabilities. Users can now connect their iOS device to a television using the appropriate cables, and watch their favourite television shows on a big screen instead of the iOS device. That’s pretty huge for anyone who spends a lot of time on the road, traveling around the world with nothing but iOS devices.

For the record, you need the Slingbox in your home to make use of the iOS application. A Slingbox runs about $179.00 for the SOLO option, and $299.99 for the Slingbox PRO-HD model.
