Sling Media has announced the immediate availability of the SlingPlayer for Mac OS X, a software download for Slingbox customers who wish to view their home TV natively on an Apple Macintosh computer.

Using SlingPlayer, OS X users now have the ability to watch and control their home TV from any Mac laptop or desktop located just about anywhere in the world.

SlingPlayer for Mac OS X includes Sling Media’s photo-realistic remote controls as well as the ability to program favorite channels, change viewing modes and of course using SlingStream to optimize the broadband connection on both ends to deliver the best possible video stream.
