Now, you enjoy the feel of your TV remotely over Windows phone 7 devices. Yes! Sling Media has announced its Sling Player Mobile for Windows Phone 7 smartphones. Although, this may not be very fresh news for Android and iPhone users, as they have already been introduced to this facility, but when it comes to Windows phone 7 users, this must be exciting anyway.
The basic requirement to get this support is 3G connection or Wi-Fi support, followed by a Slingbox attached to their TV, so that one can get the live steaming video without any possible lag.
The functionality of Slingbox lies on a procedure known as place shifting. Place shifting is a course of action of streaming media over internet from a given location to a solo user on his/ her SlingPlayer-loaded phone without copyright intrusion over internet, anywhere in the world.
When connected to a Slingbox SOLO or Slingbox PRO-HD via the Internet, the award-winning SlingPlayer Mobile software makes it easy to watch your home TV on a variety of handsets. Now Slingbox® owners with Windows Phone 7 devices can change channels, control their DVRs and watch their favorite shows anywhere they have a 3G or Wi-Fi internet connection.
Users are also allowed to view different channels and can get the channel of their wish, by changing it through their very own Windows Phone 7. Now, this is something based on virtual remote control that appears on the screen of the video streaming device, which is none other than your phone.
Although, this will cost you around $30, but believe me it’s worth giving a try. For more info click here.
