Rumor: SlingMedia working on iPhone/iPod Touch version of Sling software

Electric pig tv is reporting that TV fans will soon be watching their favourite shows live on Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch. We just had a chat with an extremely senior source at Sling, who said: “iPhone and iPod touch are OS X devices, and we can write OS X apps with our eyes closed. It’s coming.”

Specific dates for the new software are fuzzy at best, but with Steve Jobs having pledged a development kit by February, and due to take to the stage at Macworld in less than a week, we’d expect it extremely soon.

Strangely, our source said the iPod touch could provide a better platform for Slingplayer, thanks to its exclusive Wi-Fi connection. The company appears to be concerned that Edge is not fast enough to stream TV at acceptable quality, resulting in a poor experience for customers.

Any what is Electric pig TV? Beats the hell out of me but I like the fact that they have some good news regarding the iPhone and Slingbox.
