Sling Media’s SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry has officially exited public beta and is now available as an over the air download from mobile.slingmedia.com using a BlackBerry Smartphone’s web browser.

During the beta period SlingPlayer continued refining the SlingPlayer Mobile software to ensure the best possible experience for our customers. We fixed bugs, added some tweaks and made some enhancements to the overall product that we feel creates the ultimate mobile TV experience for our customers.
- Ability to add/ edit Slingboxes and Channel Favorites directly on SlingPlayer Mobile, not just via SlingPlayer 2.0 for Windows, which in the past was then propagated down to the BlackBerry
- Additional setting to optimize low bandwidth streaming
- Additional convenience features, e.g. current connection type indicator, volume level indicator, keypad lock, in addition to general UI improvement
- Enhanced aspect ratio/ display mode support
