Sling demos Clip+Sling TV sharing feature

Slingbox Clip and Sling

Sling Media late Tuesday revealed its new Clip+Sling video sharing service. Citing the common problem of wanting to share favorite scenes from favorite TV shows or a play in a sports event, the Slingbox maker says it has developed a new version of its SlingPlayer computer and mobile software that lets owners of the TV streaming hubs record short clips and publish them to a Web portal, where the resulting footage is viewable by anyone.

As with the Slingbox itself, the service requires only a broadband connection and the relevant software. The software is currently limited to a private beta, Sling notes; however, the company says American Slingbox owners can sign up for the test program to join the service once it expands. A final version of Clip+Sling should be ready later this year.
