On the heels of our Slingbox M1 and SlingTV retail product announcements last week, we have news today from our partner, ARRIS, Inc. This morning ARRIS announced that Comporium and Service Electric, two U.S. cable operators, will deploy the MS4000™ Media Streamer to their ARRIS Whole Home Solution customers. This plug and play network transcoder is powered by Sling technology, giving customers access to live and recorded TV content on a variety of mobile devices both inside and outside the home.
As you may know, Sling technology powers DISH Network’s Hopper with Sling set top box and last year Sling Media announced a partnership with ARRIS to deploy similar Sling-based solutions to their cable, telco and wireless customers both here in the U.S. and worldwide. We’re excited to see the first two operators make this powerful Sling product available to their customers.
