SlingPlayer is an Android application created to work in conjunction with the Slingbox set-top box. You can access stream TV content right on your phone.
The app requires a Slingbox to be installed with your home television setup. Once connected, the utility allows for streaming over 3G, 4G, or WiFi networks, providing access to TV content outside the home.
Key functionalities of SlingPlayer include remote control of the television and DVR from the phone. This includes the ability to change channels, pause, fast-forward, and rewind live or recorded content. Similar to X1 Remote, the app also enables you to manage DVR recordings remotely.
The utility is compatible with several models of Slingbox, specifically the Slingbox 500, M2, M1, 350, PRO-HD, and SOLO. The app’s functionality is limited to these specific Slingbox models.
Moreover, SlingPlayer offers compatibility with various streaming devices such as Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, and Roku. This feature allows you to stream content to a secondary television. Enhanced functionality with Roku devices includes the ability to transition viewing from the Android device to Roku while enabling the phone for other uses simultaneously.
