Mac users can rejoice - Sling Media has (finally) released a public beta of SlingPlayer for Mac OS X. It is available now as a free download at the company's website. I spoke with a representative from Sling Media who said the company was thrilled to finally have software for the Mac community.

Sling Media also announced a customized version of its SlingPlayer software designed to take advantage of the new, powerful features being offered in the Windows Vista Premium operating system from Microsoft.

New and existing Slingbox customers will be able to take advantage of SlingPlayer for Windows Vista when it first becomes available in Q2, 2007. In the interim period between launch of the Windows Vista OS and the release of the new SlingPlayer software, Slingbox customers can download and use Sling Media's most recent version of SlingPlayer, released in late December, on their new Windows Vista-based PCs. This is a free download.

Support for Windows Mobile & Palm OS were also announced, due in quarter 1 of 2007.
