SlingPlayer OS X Public Beta Available for Download

Oh yes! Today’s the day that Mac fans everywhere can watch their favorite episodes of Deal or No Deal wherever they go with the SlingPlayer beta for OS X. The beta came a bit earlier than we were expecting, but the final release should be sometime in Q4 2006. Whether it’s on the john, on a boat, in the rain, in Kazakhstan, or even underwater, as long as you have an internet connection, your Mac can stream Howie’s bald head for your enjoyment.

Three viewing modes give you flexibility in your viewing style:

SlingBarâ„¢ – docks SlingPlayer on either the right or left of the desktop, allowing you to watch your television and work with other applications simultaneously

Resizable Window – move it around the desktop just like any other application, making it small or large

Full Screen – for a real break watch your shows as big as your screen can get

It’s still just a public beta, so expect some kinks that still haven’t been worked out. Nevertheless, Sling owners who are also Mac owners should be happy.
