EchoStar’s Sling Media division announced four Sling products aimed at TV service providers, including EchoStar’s DISH satellite TV service.

Sling Touch Control 100The Sling Touch Control 100 is a next-generation, touch-screen device with an interface based on Sling Media’s popular SlingGuide electronic program guide.

It interacts with and controls SlingGuide-enabled DVRs as well as most line-of-sight controlled audio-visual devices.

Slingbox 700UThe Slingbox 700U is a slim and small SlingBox that adds HD Slingbox capability to any compatible set-top box using a USB connection.

Sling Monitor 150The Sling Monitor 150 is a light-weight, portable flat screen display that wirelessly shifts your primary HD DVR video experience to any location in your home, eliminating the need to run cables or purchase a second DVR.

The Sling Monitor 150 is the only free-standing monitor that can accept a full HD broadcast stream over a WiFi network (802.11).

In addition to receiving an HD video stream, the Sling Monitor 150 can control all the features of your primary HD DVR.

Sling Receiver 300The Sling Receiver 300 is a companion product to a SlingLoaded set-top box, such as EchoStar’s SlingLoaded 922 HD DVR,.

It delivers a full 1080i video stream from an HD DVR to any other HD television in a home using the viewer’s wireless home network.

Not surprisingly, EchoStar’s DISH Network plans to be the first television service provider to add the Monitor 150 and 700U to its product lineup.
