Slingbox® 350 Available In Brazil
Slingbox 350 Provides Live and Recorded Television Content Anywhere in HD-Quality on the Most Popular Mobile Devices
São Paulo, November, 12, 2013 – Brazil has just become the first country in South America to offer the award-winning Slingbox 350, a device that can turn any computer, tablet or smartphone into a TV, giving the user the possibility to watch their pay-TV content, premium content and recorded programming wherever they are, anywhere in the world, without additional subscription fees.
Slingbox 350 is distributed in Brazil by the Brazilian company Flex. The local distributor guaranties to Brazilian consumers the benefit of having a local technical support site and one year warranty offered by Flex.
Décio Libertini Neto, Flex's Director , explains that Slingbox changes the concept of TV whenever you want - brought by recorded programming - to the concept of TV wherever you want.
"With Slingbox, if you're not home to watch your favorite programs on television, you don't have to record and watch it later. Watch it wherever you are, live or recorded, on your favorite mobile device. It gives you the possibility of taking your pay-TV and premium content with you on your travels, whether out of the country or around town. Even better, you can use Slingbox to watch your living room TV on a computer, tablet or smartphone anywhere around the house," says Libertini Neto.
Slingbox 350 is also indispensable for sport fans. Think on the World Cup next year, or Olympics 2016: do you want to miss a sporting event when you have to be away from your TV? Don't take that risk. With Slingbox 350 you will never miss those events and will be able to watch it in sparkling HD quality on any of your favorite devices.
The Slingbox connects to any audio and video source (AV) and is compatible to SD and HD video sources, including all the most popular digital video recorders (DVRs), cable and telco set-top boxes and satellite receivers. It is also compatible with all interfaces and operating systems of the most popular tablets and smartphones.
"Slingbox is the best way to extend the entire living room television experience anywhere on your computer, tablet or smartphone. It's the highest-performing product on the market, having won numerous awards, and by launching it in Brazil, we are bringing to the country a technology that disrupts the category we created," says Maurício Perez, Sling Media's Manager for Latin America.
Slingbox 350 is available to Brazilian customers for R$ 799 through website http://www.slingbox.com.br.
