Sling Media Unveils Expanded Slingbox Platform At CES

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CES 2013 -- Sling Media, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation (NASDAQ: SATS), introduces new Slingbox platform developments designed to enhance the TV-viewing experience for customers who own the recently released Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 placeshifting devices. My Media™ and Slingbox Companion™ will give Slingbox customers a new way to discover, watch and share content on the TV and portable devices.

My Media, featuring SlingSync™, will be available exclusively for Slingbox 500 customers as an extension to the SlingProjector features currently available.  SlingSync makes it easy for customers to sync photos and videos to a Slingbox 500 with a connected USB drive and view them on the TV. Slingbox Companion, Sling Media's 2 nd screen social TV app for iPad, will be available for Slingbox 500 customers initially. Slingbox 350 support will follow later this year.

Live demonstrations of the expanded Slingbox platform as well as other features will take place in the Sling Media booth at the 2013 International CES® (Central Hall, Booth #8143).

"These new features bring instant, additional value to Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 customers at no extra cost and position Slingbox firmly as a device of choice in the living room," said Sling Media's Senior Vice President and General Manager Raghu Tarra. "The My Media feature delivers on the platform promise of the Slingbox 500. Slingbox Companion further leverages the Slingbox to deliver a powerful 2 nd screen application for the iPad that combines content discovery and navigation with rich media and social media features."

The new Slingbox platform expands on placeshifting to take advantage of additional technologies that provide an enhanced overall experience. Customers will find they can do more with their Slingbox (both inside the home and remotely) making it an integral component of the home entertainment system.
