We’ve had a busy month here at Sling with the announcement of Slingbox M1 and SlingTV and as we approach Fall and get ready to ship SlingTV, it’s about to get much busier.
The NFL and College Football seasons are right around the corner and we know how much our customers love having access to their favorite teams on Saturdays and Sundays, whether it’s around the house, around town or halfway across the world. The Slingbox M1 is our most affordable, easy to use, easy to set-up Slingbox model we’ve ever introduced and with built-in WiFi, it gives customers no-strings attached access to all their programming, on any device, anywhere. In fact, Slingbox M1 was just included in a segment on the Today Show. Check us out at the 5:05 minute mark.
SlingTV, which is scheduled to be available at the end of August, brings powerful new features into the living room. Customers will have access to real-time stats and a full list of games currently being televised and more importantly on what channels. In addition, the visual interface of SlingTV makes it simple to easily discover what’s on TV and filter by movies, TV shows, kids programming or sporting events and navigate to a program with a click of a button on the SlingTV remote. Slingbox 500 customers will get a free upgrade to SlingTV when it becomes available later this month.
To mark the launch of these new products we created a new slogan: Sling. It’s On! We also introduced a new logo and a completely re-designed website, http://www.sling.com. What’s more, we created what we call our ‘Anthem’ video, which we’ve also turned into a TV commercial that’s running on cable TV in select markets nationwide.
We’d love to know what you think and better yet, what are some of your best uses of Sling?
As summer winds down, Sling is just revving up for the busy Fall season. It’s a wonderful time of year to be a fan of television and with a Slingbox you’ll never miss a moment, no matter where you are.
