The rumor that Sling Media is working on an iPhone-compatible version of its Sling software refuses to die. In speaking with iLounge, Dave Zatz (of Zatz Not Funny fame, now at Sling Media) confirmed that Sling Media has an iPhone SDK and that’s it’s currently planning what move to make next. “We know it’s [iPhone] a hot platform and we’ll see what our options are,” said Zatz. Smart man, that Zatz.
Sling on the iPhone would be huge for us techies. I don’t know how many times I’ve been in class and have wanted to be watching Champions League on ESPN2 or car chases on Fox News. Of course, I’d need an iPhone first, but, as I’ve said in the past, my next phone will be either iPhone v2 or an Android-based phone, just waiting to see how it pans out.
