Slingbox coming to BlackBerry

Sling Media has confirmed to Pocket-lint that it is working on a version of its SlingPlayer software for the BlackBerry OS.

"We are working with BlackBerry to develop a software application at the moment", Stuart Collingwood, VP of Europe for Sling Media told us.

The news means that BlackBerry users across the world will soon be able to stream their television from home to a BlackBerry device anywhere in the world as long as they have an internet connection.

The news comes on the back of the announcement that Sling Media will be supporting six Symbian OS handsets including the N95.

Sling Media, who are quick to recommend people sign up for a flat rate data package or use the on board Wi-Fi where possible say that people who've seen the application working are "blown away by the performance".

No word as yet as to when the software will be available.

We will keep you posted.
