SlingCatcher, Slingbox PRO-HD go up for pre-orders

updated 12:45 pm EDT, Wed September 10, 2008

New Sling Media pre-orders has posted pre-orders for two upcoming pieces of hardware, the SlingCatcher and the Slingbox PRO-HD. The former, priced at $300, is designed to bring media to a TV without a computer or extended cable, and sources from a USB drive, a monitor, or a Slingbox feed. No release date has been set, but the timing of the pre-order suggests a release later this fall.

The PRO-HD is the first Slingbox to support HD streaming, in resolutions up to 1080i with support for 5.1-channel surround sound. The set-top also includes built-in ATSC and QAM tuners, and is being priced at $300, $100 lower than originally announced. Like the SlingCatcher, no date has been revealed.
