Slingmedia has signed up Apple and BlackBerry to its mobile TV service. The company is behind one of the big hopes for wireless innovation in 2009, Slingbox, which allows customers to watch and control TV channels on their home TV while on the move and even when in other countries.The service effectively pulls television content onto a laptop or mobile phone anywhere in the world, as long as it can access an internet connection. SlingMedia recently joined forces with Apple to bring Slingbox to the 3G iPhone, as well as several BlackBerry and Palm handsets.

Around half a million people around the world have already downloaded the ‘SlingPlayer’ mobile application onto their handset, according to SlingMedia. SlingPlayer Mobile launched in 2006 as part of an exclusive deal with 3 on X-Series handsets.
