--App's 3G Capability Disabled Due to Pressure from Apple, AT&T
TV placeshifting company, Sling Media (note: the company is a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corp.), announced Wednesday that it is now offering a version of its SlingPlayer Mobile application (allows users to watch their home TV service and DVR-recorded programming remotely on their mobile phone) for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch devices. However, the application, which is priced at $29.99 and available in the iPhone App Store, only works with Wi-Fi and not with the 3G mobile network of AT&T, the only US wireless carrier to offer the iPhone.
