Watching Your Favorite TV Channels on Blackberry
Among other features of the Blackberry smart phone by RIM, it can also allow the user to watch television shows from it, wherever, whenever. This feature was announced during the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show by the American Company Sling Media.
With the new technology Slingbox, created by Sling Media, signals are transmitted from the home television to the mobile phone using the broadband service. Wherever you are, as long as there is a broadband service, you can watch television using your Blackberry. The ability of the Blackberry phone to be used as a television set has been present in the phone since it was introduced in 2005. Unfortunately, the capability of using broadband connections with the Blackberry phone is only introduced at present.
With the software SlingPlayer installed in the Blackberry mobile phone, downloaded from the website of Sling Media, TV viewing is made possible. There is no more reason to miss a favorite show because you were out and they didn’t have a television near you. The Slingbox is controlled by the SlingPlayer software in the phone which allows the user to record the shows at home via signaling the remote control to record. Another option is to watch the television show right on the mobile phone without having to miss it.
With this kind of technology available for mobile phones, more people are relying on their mobile phones to give them what they need. The mobile phone has evolved from a simple communications device where people can get in touch with you anywhere you are to a all purpose gadget with features ranging from taking pictures, video recordings, sending messages, and now, watching TV. Isn’t it possible that it may have more features in several months and years to come?
