Over the years the Slingbox platform of products have provided homeowners a reliable and cost-effective way to remotely access a variety of video content from remote locations.

The latest product from the Foster City, Calif.-based company is the cost-friendly M1 solution. This product replaces Slingbox’s popular 350 and 500 models. The M1 provides users with the ability to stream their pay TV channels and programs (live or recorded) to their favorite portable devices with improved user features and other options.

“Once again, Sling Media is totally redefining the ‘TV anywhere’ experience with the introduction of the Slingbox M1 and SlingTV,” says Michael Hawkey, senior vice president and general manager of Sling Media. “Customers interested in a no-compromise entertainment experience using the most popular devices will be delighted by the affordability and new features of the Slingbox M1. SlingTV completely enhances the living room TV experience with a visually stunning TV user interface that takes ultimate advantage of social media data activity.”

The M1 integrates the latest Wi-Fi functionality to facilitate full network connectivity, and its companion Slingplayer app is designed to expedite the setup process.

In addition, the company has announced its SlingTV that is powered by Slingbox 500 hardware. This product release provides homeowners an improved user experience through the addition of new navigation tools that make it easy to find the latest TV shows, movies and sports. Some of the other features SlingTV offers include a new soft remote that is built into Slingplayer for iPhone and Android users, Rotten Tomato ratings, details view, and a gallery view that is designed that provides a visual interface to help users find their favorite content.
