Following on from the recent discovery of the new Slingbox 350 and 500 media devices on shelves at a Best Buy store earlier this month.
Slingbox has today officially announced the launch of the two 1080p media devices, in the form of the Slingbox 350 and 500 which can both be connected via Ethernet to your home network, or if you purchase the Slingbox 500 via a Wi-Fi connection which the 350 does not have.
Each one of the new media boxes has been designed to place shift 1080p content, streaming whatever is currently on your HDTV set and allowing you to control the DVR functions remotely, whilst away from home.
In addition to the new Slingbox media devices, Slinbox is also rolling out new SlingPlayer software for mobile and desktop systems, which includes software for Android, iOS and Windows Phone mobil devices. The new Slingbox 500 media device also includes a HDMI port which is the first time Slingbox has added this feature.
The new Slingbox 350 and 500 will start shipping in the US on October 14th, with the Slingbox 500 priced at $300 and the Slingbox 350 priced at $180. They will also be arriving in Canada sometime next month, says Slingbox.
