CES 2010: Sling Media Announces 4 New Products

Sling Media (which was purchased by EchoStar (Dish) last year) has announced not 1, but 4 new products [press release].

First is the Sling Touch Control 100 which is a touch-screen remote control with a 4.3″ touchscreen and a rechargeable battery that gets changed in an accompanying cradle. The Sling Touch can control most IR-based devices, as well as communicate with other devices via IP over a 802.11 WiFi home network.

Second is the Sling Monitor 150 which is a 15.6″ LCD TV that has a SlingLoaded DVR built in. It can take and display a 720p HD stream over WiFi. Consider this for your bedroom, kitchen, den, etc.

Third is a new Slingbox – the 700U, which you will be able to get from your TV provider (like Dish Network). It isn’t really a standalone Slingbox, but mostly an add-on for an existing DVR box to ‘Sling-ify’ it so you can access the DVR’s contents remotely.

Fourth is the Sling Receiver 300 which is cheaper way to access your HD DVR content on a secondary TV without the need for additional cables or a second DVR. Of course, this competes with existing products in the field.
