After months of empty promises and false starts, Sling Media has finally publicly released a Mac OS X version of its SlingPlayer software. Now, users of Apple's candy-coated operating system can enjoy running Slingbox, slinging, if you will, their media from point A to point B.


The SlingPlayer software appears to be a Universal Binary, meaning that it'll run natively on both the new Intel-based Macs and the older PowerPC-based systems. You'll need to be running Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later to get in the hot public beta action and you'll need the appropriate home network setup in order to fully enjoy the benefits of Slingbox.

Good, now Mac users can get in on that hot "place shifting" action. It's about damn time.
