Vitamin_Boy writes: Sling has a new product out, the "SlingCatcher." It sends video from the PC to the TV and does it for $200. Oh, and it apparently works with iTunes. Will this undercut Apple's iTV? This Ars Technica article thinks it might: "The SlingCatcher, on the other hand, is media-agnostic. It doesn't care what codec videos are encoded with, nor whether or not they have been purchased from an approved online store. It is designed to take video output and stream it, which means that you could use the SlingCatcher with video purchased from other online services, such as the iTunes Store or CinemaNow. In this way, the SlingCatcher may turn out to be a one-size-fits-all solution in a field populated with specialty products."
