Sling Media announced that the SlingPlayer for the BlackBerry phones has exited beta and is now available as an over the air download using a BlackBerry Smartphone’s web browser.
SlingPlayer Mobile is available for a one-time charge of $29.99 and includes a 30-day free trial. You will, of course, need a Slingbox connected to your television source to take advantage of this software.
Features of the SlingPlayer for BlackBerry include:
+ 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

+ Audio track selection if available as part of the channel program

Currently SlingPlayer only works via 3G on the BlackBerry Bold from AT&T. The BlackBerry Curve 8900 from T-Mobile, BlackBerry 8820 from AT&T, BlackBerry Curve 8320 from AT&T, BlackBerry Curve 8320 from T-Mobile, BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 from T-Mobile, BlackBerry Pearl 8120 from AT&T, and BlackBerry Curve 8350i from Sprint Nextel require you to use the Wi-Fi connection to watch TV on your SlingPlayer.
Other BlackBerry phones are supposed to be supported in the near future.
