SlingMedia and Apple Sit in a Tree

It’s been a long time in the hyping but it looks like there will be a Mac OS version of the SlingPlayer software for use with SlingMedia’s SlingBoxes. An interview of SlingMedia’s Brian Jaquet revealed that there were some glitches in the company’s plans to get the Player out the door, including the launch of Intel-based Macs. It’s now on track to go into beta sometime in Q4, but at least by year’s end. Looks like support will only go back to OS X 10.3, though. Sling Community, the site that did the interview, also has a lengthy video of a sneak preview of what the Player will look like, posted above for your, um, entertainment.
