Sling Media has announced that its SlingPlayer Mobile software is now available for smartphones running the UIQ user interface on Symbian OS, as announced earlier this year.

SlingPlayer Mobile gives Slingbox owners the ability to watch and control their home TV from a network-connected mobile phone.

As well as watching programming, SlingPlayer Mobile users can also control their home personal or digital video recorder to watch recorded shows, pause, rewind and fast forward live TV, or even program new recordings while on the road.

The UIQ handsets that will support SlingPlayer Mobile at launch include the Sony Ericsson P1i, P990i, W960i, W950i, M600i, G700, G900 and the Motorola Z8 and Z10.

The price of the application is £19.99, available direct from Sling Media.
