CES 2007: PC to TV – the slingbox in reverse?
At last year’s CES we reported on the fact that the slingbox was finally making its way to the UK. A year on, and the folks behind the little box that turns your tv into an internet stream (or mobile stream, via the highly publicised Slingplayer Mobile deal with 3) have turned the tables on us, literally. Rumour has it they’ll be showing off the ‘Slingcatcher’ – a sort of slingbox in reverse – here at CES. That means you’ll be able to watch your PC content (yep, YouTube vids and all) on your TV, at a much lower price than rival products from the big names. The box should be available (in the US at least) this Summer for around $200. Full details should be revealed at tonight’s press conference, so we’ll keep you updated.[via Afterdawn]
