Following the app's availability on most other mobile platforms, there is now a SlingPlayer app on Android, letting users control TV content remotely from their phone.
SlingPlayer works by users connecting a device called a "Slingbox" to their TV. The Slingbox connects to the Internet and can stream the user's live TV content to any device supported by Sling.

SlingPlayer is now available on computers, the iPhone, Palm devices, Nokia's Symbian platform, and Blackberry. Now it is also on Android, as a $30 application. That's one of the most expensive apps on the Android Market.

In an almost unprecedented move, Sling Media is offering a full refund to anyone who is dissatisfied with the app, if they submit a claim within 24 hours of downloading it.

"Now the full spectrum of viewing, including local channels and sports teams, video on demand, pay per view and even control of their home DVR, is available to the growing number of people moving to Android," said the general manager of Sling Media John Gilmore.
