EchoStar, Sling Media launch SlingLoaded HD DVR set-top box

Placeshifting technology to facilitate subscribers to watch their home TV on almost any internet-connected device

By CBR Staff Writer

EchoStar Technologies and Sling Media, wholly owned subsidiaries of EchoStar Corporation, have unveiled the EchoStar T2200S, the first SlingLoaded, tru2way-based, multi-tuner, HD DVR set-top box designed for the cable TV industry.

The T2200S integrates Sling Media’s placeshifting technology, facilitating cable TV subscribers to watch their home TV, including live TV, DVR and VOD content, on almost any internet-connected device, such as the PC, Mac, mobile media players or mobile phones.

The SlingLoaded capabilities also enable remote video diagnostics which lets subscribers opt-in to receive remote troubleshooting from a multi-services operator’s tech support. This is one of many SlingLoaded features enabled by the T2200S that can help reduce the operator’s call volume and truck rolls.


The T2200S features 1 terabyte hard drive for up to 1,000 hours of storage and is expected to support external storage via USB or an optional eSATA port.

Mark Jackson, president of EchoStar Technologies, said: EchoStar and Sling engineers have created one of the most powerful set-top box devices ever made for the cable industry, with the ability to watch content anywhere in the home or anyplace in the world.
