SUWANEE, Ga. , Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRS) and Sling Media are introducing a new media streaming device that empowers service providers to offer live (up to 4 simultaneous HD channels) and recorded content for a comprehensive multiscreen experience for their subscribers... welcome to TV anywhere.
The ARRIS MS4000 (Media Streamer 4000) is powered by Sling Media technology, and will be available to all service providers deploying the ARRIS Whole Home Solution. The standalone box works with the popular ARRIS MG5000 Media Gateway Series to give subscribers the capability to watch live and recorded content on tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices—in the home and on-the-go.

The MS4000 is a strategic addition to our evolving follow-me TV portfolio that empowers service providers to keep pace with consumer demand," said John Burke, SVP Corporate Strategy & Development; President Cloud Solutions Business, ARRIS.

Together, ARRIS and Sling Media are empowering service providers to go to market with the kind of media experiences that consumers demand."
