Sling Media today announced SlingPlayer Mac, giving Mac users the ability to watch and control their home television from an Internet-connected Mac anywhere in the world. The software client is in alpha, but the company is conducting a demonstration this week at Macworld Expo. Sling Media will deliver SlingPlayer Mac in the second quarter of 2006 for US$249.99. “Having grown up a Mac fan here in Northern California, I am personally very excited to be demonstrating the capabilities of the Slingbox on the Macintosh operating system,” said Blake Krikorian, co-founder and CEO of Sling Media.
