    Sling Media's SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone page has recently been updated to announce that the application has been submitted to the App Store and is awaiting approval.
    Sling Media's iPhone page also includes a video preview demonstrating the functionality of the upcoming application.

    SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone was demoed at Macworld in January, with Sling Media promising at the time that the application would be submitted to the App Store in March.

    I got the chance to get my hands on this at CES, and since then I've been dying to have it.

    My Slingbox has been so lonely lately...

    Yeah right. I've been waiting for this for over 2 years. Apple's going to reject it no doubt and then the sling guys will either refuse to release it on cydia or take 20 years to do so.

    This is pretty awesome. Might have allot to do with timing....
    New iPhone with a tv tuner chip possibly?
    At any rate this is good news!
    Good stuff

    The one here was created first according to the timestamp... but yeah, you would think the thread in the APP SECTION wouldn't be locked, since this is indeed an app.

    I can't see a company like this spending all this time and effort without talking to apple first.

    This and tethering are the only 2 things I miss about my Treo!

    I'm wondering how much they're going to charge...

    My bet: $29.99

    I mean, that's not what I'm betting -- that's what I think they'll charge. ;)

    I think that's about what I paid for the Treo version, so that does make sense!

    :D

    Only downside...

    There goes the 3G neighborhood !

    Everyone and their brother will be Slinging.

    (unless they only allow WiFi, or that's all you use)

    Yes!!! :D:D:D

    One hurdle down, now on to Apple/AT&T. Please please please don't let me down, wifi-only's better than nothing but would be really disappointing.

    We should find out in less than 7 working days if Apple are true to their word.

    I don't see 3G being able to handle this at all.

    ive used spm on my winmo device for a while now and it's watchable over 3g. granted, decent 3g connections on at&t are hard to come by here in the States, but it should work alright. wi-fi only would be really disappointing.

    should apple reject this, im going to consider switching to a blackberry (or even a pre if sling announces a mobile client for it). ive waited for almost 2 years to get this on my iphone. dont let me down, Apple!

    Here's hoping it's nothing like the awful-UI they demoed last time :(

    I might get a Slingbox if this goes through. The lack of channels on campus is killing me (there are only a few I'm missing that I need.) But this puts the cherry on top. I'd have to look at one after this.

    Anyone know if I'll be able to return the Slingbox/App if it doesn't work well for me?

    This is great news! Hopefully Sling eventually utilizes that new streaming video API that Apple demo'd two weeks ago. I also hope they don't rip us off! I heard this will cost $40...
