SlingPlayer Mobile 1.1 adds 16x9 support, DISH Remote

updated 11:00 pm EDT, Mon August 10, 2009

SlingPlayer Mobile update

Sling Media is set to launch an update to its iPhone app, Sling Mobile, which is currently pending approval from Apple. Version 1.1 still lacks 3G streaming, although it adds several new features such as DISH Remote Access integration and improvements to the control interface. The DISH functions bring a content guide directly onto the iPhone, instead of importing a picture, while search and filter options have been expanded.

The update also boasts faster speed when establishing connections, changing channels or using the remote control functions. Users will be able to view content with a 16 x 9 aspect ratio to fill the entire screen of an iPhone or iPod touch.

Although Sling Mobile 1.1 is still in the review process, it is expected to be a free upgrade for existing users or a $30 download for new customers. [via jkOnTheRun]
