Sling Media, the maker of hardware and software that allows users to watch home TV content from anywhere, has officially announced that a version of its SlingPlayer Mobile app for the iPad is coming soon. We first heard that this app was in the works eight months ago and it’s nice to finally see something official about it from Sling Media.

We have been hard at work on an iPad version of SlingPlayer Mobile. When it becomes available it will be priced at $29.99, the same as all of our SlingPlayer Mobile applications. The new app will take full advantage of the iPad’s beautiful display.
It sounds like SlingPlayer is working on a separate app for the iPad instead of converting the current iPhone version into a universal app, so if you have both an iPhone and an iPad, you’ll have to shell out $30 twice to equip both of your devices with SlingPlayer Mobile. The iPhone version of SlingPlayer Mobile has been around for more than a year now and has earned a solid 3.5-star overall rating.
