If you’ve got a BlackBerry Bold, Curve 8900, Curve 8820, Curve 8320, Pearl Flip 8220 or Pearl 8120 then you’ll be able to download the public beta version for free from the SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry web site and start controlling your Slingbox while on the move.

There are some minimum system requirements in order to enjoy the service, including having the latest SlingPlayer desktop software installed on a home PC or Mac, a minimum broadband upstream speed of 256Kbps, and a BlackBerry with 3G or Wi-Fi connection and network download speed of at least 120Kbps.

Got all that? Log on in a couple of weeks time and you could be watching TV programmes from your BlackBerry by the New Year.
