Sling Media updates range with HD and BlackBerry products

Sling Media's range of devices allow users to watch what's on their TV anywhere - whether on their mobile phone or on a laptop.

The company has now launched the Slingbox Pro HD box and SlingPlayer client for BlackBerry phones.

The Pro HD is an update of the Slingbox Pro offering more advanced hardware for streaming out video in high definition (at 1080i).

Next up, the BlackBerry client allows BlackBerry owners to watch TV on their device as earlier Sling Media products had on a whole range of mobile phones.

The Pro HD is expected to be priced around $400 when launched in Q3; while the BlackBerry Client will be priced $30, but does not have a release date as yet.

Both products are expected to be on show at this year's CES show in Las Vegas.
