Get Ready for the SlingModem

EchoStar Technologies today will take a big step into the cable industry with the introduction of the CableLabs Certified DOCSIS 2.0 SlingModem.

The modem will be on display at CableNET at the NCTA Cable Show in New Orleans. EchoStar purchased Sling Media last fall.

With the modem, EchoStar said it is pursuing OEM relationships with cable operators worldwide. "The introduction of the SlingModem demonstrates our operator-agnostic philosophy, as well as our dedication to the cable industry," said Sling Media CEO Blake Krikorian.

The SlingModem is a place-shifting device, combining a DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem with the features of Slingbox. Cable subscribers can use the device as a traditional DOCSIS cable modem with the added benefit of built-in Slingbox functionality.

By connecting SlingModem directly to a coax cable input or set-top box, subscribers can receive live or recorded television on any internet-connected device. SlingModem is installed through a single coaxial cable, eliminating the need for additional home networking connections.
