Interactive guides are nice, but they can take up a screen. It would be great if you could have the guide show up on a remote, then when you select a show it will appear on the screen. That is what Sling is working on with the Sling Touch Remote.
The Sling Touch is a powerful remote with wireless capabilities. If you are in the basement and the game is starting, you just connect to the WiFi and set the SlingBox or another device. The guide will be there to help you through so you don’t need to run upstairs to make sure the record light is flashing.
Todd Cochrane talks with Anthony about this great new product from Sling. It’s also a universal remote and could be part of a bundled package, such as Dish network.
