Sling Media Announces Clip and Sling

Sling Media has announced a new technology called Clip+Sling. Clip+Sling is designed to help Slingbox customers share short segments of programming, live or recorded, with other Slingbox customers as well as the audience at-large. Clip+Sling is a feature that will be built into both the desktop and mobile versions of SlingPlayer software, giving Slingbox owners the ability to record and share portions of content in just a few short clicks. While customers will need a Slingbox to publish clips, the content posted to an interactive portal will be accessible by anyone.

Clip+Sling is currently in private beta, with the company accepting applications for inclusion in the beta as it is broadened within the United States. The Clip+Sling application is the first in a series of interactive products and services that are being driven by the recently-formed Sling Media Entertainment Group. The services being designed and implemented by the Sling Media Entertainment Group are aimed at building deeper community experiences around the Slingbox. It is Sling Media Entertainment Group's mission to introduce solutions that delight the consumer and drive new value for content owners and distributors.
