I picked this up from ZatzNotFunny. TiVo.com is now selling the Slingbox AV. Just the AV – doesn’t look like they have the Pro or Tuner models, but it is a start. Dave checked in with Sling and they say it is a “co-sales agreement” – so maybe we’ll see TiVo’s for sale on SlingMedia.com. A lot of people combine the TiVo and Slingbox, so this makes sense. I, and others, have said for a while that the two companies should partner and sell bundles and integrate their products more tightly.
I haven’t jumped on the Sling bandwagon myself just yet – I’m really waiting for the PalmOS client to be released. Once that’s out, I won’t really have an excuse not to get a Slingbox Pro to go with my Series3. Though, if they’d release the long-rumored ‘Sling Catcher’ box to use as a client on other TVs, that’d sell me too. I’d use one in the bedroom instead of a TiVo, especially since the S3 doesn’t do MRV.
