SlingPlayer for Roku is a feature that teams up your Slingbox and SlingPlayer for iPhone, SlingPlayer for iPad, SlingPlayer for Android Phones, or SlingPlayer for Android Tablets with your Roku streaming player. With SlingPlayer on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet, you can stream your TV programs to the Roku player, and onto your TV. Just make sure that you've got a Slingbox 500, Slingbox M1/M2, Slingbox 350, Slingbox PRO-HD, or Slingbox SOLO, as well as the latest version of SlingPlayer for your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet. Then download the SlingPlayer app for your Roku player, and you'll be all set to go.
