EchoStar to Buy Sling Media
Established in 2004, Sling Media has been a leading innovator in the digital lifestyle space through the introduction of the internationally-acclaimed, Emmy award-winning Slingbox(tm) and SlingPlayer(tm) software. Sling Media's product line is distributed in over 5,000 retail stores in 11 countries.
In 2006, Sling Media created the Sling Entertainment Group with the mission of developing entertainment experiences and business models that reach beyond the Slingbox. The group also fosters and manages relationships with content creators and owners. Its first initiative, Clip+Sling(tm), dramatically changes the way consumers socialize around TV by enabling users to clip and share limited segments of their favorite television programming.
