Sling adds Chromecast support through Slingplayer mobile apps

Sling Media has announced Slingbox support for Chromecast through their Slingplayer apps for iPhone, iPad, Android phone and very soon Android tablet.

They have integrated the ‘Cast’ icon into our Slingplayer apps giving those who have a Slingbox the ability to watch their living room TV on another TV in the house or a TV in a remote location using a Chromecast device.

Product Alert for Slingbox 500

Dear Sling Customer,

We are always measuring how new and existing features are used by our customers across the PC/Mac, tablet and smartphone platforms we support with our Sling products. We do this to determine whether they are integral, on-going components of the Sling experience that need to be supported and improved with each software update to the products. To this end, we have decided to remove the My Media features that can be found on Slingbox 500/SlingTV.
