Sling—the streaming box that lets you use your cable subscription from anywhere—has completely redesigned its SlingPlayer app for Android and iOS to favor better discovery, with added social integration and new split-screen navigation. Sling will also be releasing an app for Windows 8.1 in December. And finally, you…
What price the luxury of watching Friends re-runs on your Android tablet? If you ask Sling Media, it's $30, which is what they're charging for the SlingPlayer app. Compatible with Honeycomb (and likely upcoming versions too), you must have a Slingbox to actually, y'know, sling TV shows to your tablet.
