Slingbox lovers who love their HDTVs even more should be happy to know that Sling Media just announced the Slingbox Pro-HD for $299.99.
The gadget — which streams a user’s home TV service (TV channels, DVR recordings, over-the-air signals and all) to the Internet so you can watch your TV away from home on a computer, PDA, or other mobile device – now also streams High-Definition video. Besides the device, you’ll also need a fast Internet connection of at least 1.5 megabits per second.
The company also upgraded its PC software to SlingPlayer 2.0, which can be downloaded at slingmedia.com. The upgrade allows users to pause and rewind live video without interfering with the same show that the home user is watching.
