Sling Web Portal in the Works

We have long been fans of Sling. Its combination of hardware (the Slingbox AV, Slingbox Pro) and software has made it easy for users to get their home TV on their laptops, no matter where they are. But Sling still uses sleek looking desktop software both on Mac and PCs to play streaming television content on laptops. But for how long? We came across a job listing from SlingMedia stating that company plans to release an “upcoming web portal.” The job for a Senior Editor position lists that the individual will be:

commenting on an inventory of video clips through daily blog posts, aggregating clips into charts and playlists, and creating features to engage participation of site users and television fans.

Is Sling working on a web version of SlingPlayer? It sure looks like it, considering www.sling.com has a “coming soon” banner. However, it appears from the listing that they will be offering video clips of television shows. Perhaps we may finally see a version of Clip+Sling, which the company demoed at CES last year. Clip + Sling will allow users to clip parts of their favoriate television shows and share them with others, including the ability to post it to a public Web site where anyone can watch it. Again, we are just putting various pieces together and all we really know is that Sling is looking for a Senior Editor, or blogger of sorts.
