Sling Media launched the SlingBox M2, a new streaming device that allows users of Apple TV, Google ’s Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV or Roku to shift content from their mobile devices to a 2nd TV that has an Internet connection. Like the previous Slingbox device, the M2 also allows users to access live and on-demand content from anywhere. And purchase of the $199 device allows users to download the Slingplayer streaming app, normally $15 or more per month, for free. In addition, the Sling-player app includes free upgrades for the lifecycle of all new Slingbox models and later this year, Sling Media, a subsidiary of EchoStar, will release usability enhancements to the app, including video quality improvements and a gallery viewing mode on iPhone and Android phones, similar to what is available on the iPad.
