SlingPlayer iPhone App Launches in Europe

Apple Approves Wi-Fi Only Version

Sling Media, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation (NASDAQ: SATS), today announced the availability of the SlingPlayer Mobile Wi-Fi application for iPhone and iPod touch customers across Europe. The announcement came at the IBC conference in Amsterdam. The SlingPlayer Mobile Wi-Fi application is now available in 16 additional countries — including France, Germany, Spain and Italy. The application was first made available to iPhone and iPod touch customers in the U.S., Canada and the UK in May 2009.

“We are disappointed that Apple has not yet approved the 3G version of the SlingPlayer Mobile application for iPhone and iPod customers outside the U.S.,” said John Gilmore, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sling Media. “However, we are very excited to launch the Wi-Fi version. It gives our European customers access to the full spectrum of viewing choices on their iPhone or iPod touch when connected to a Wi-Fi network — the ability to watch and control both their live TV from home (local channels, local sports, video-on-demand and pay-per-view) as well as their home digital video recorder (DVR).”

How it Works
When your iPhone or iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the SlingPlayer Mobile software application connects to your Slingbox SOLO or PRO at home — and allows you to watch and control your home TV. You can change TV channels, control your DVR, watch your favourite shows — all on your iPhone or iPod touch.
