Shhhh! SlingPlayer Mobile for Android in Private Beta

For a few months now, we have heard rumblings about SlingMedia and their Android plans.  An early look demo was shown off back in March leading many to believe a beta release was right around the corner.  Well, we’ve turned that corner.  But don’t tell anyone, okay?  SlingMedia doesn’t want word getting out.

SlingMedia is sending emails out to select folks with details about a private beta.  One of Phandroid’s readers was only too excited to pass along part of their email, possibly to the developer’s chagrin.

Hi ,

The wait is finally over! A new private beta is available for the SlingPlayer Mobile for Android. Since your beta profile is a good match for testing, you have the opportunity to join the new beta program.

Please note this is a special invitation so do not share this email or the below URL with anyone else. Also, do not mention you received an invitation, that the beta is starting, or anything that’s related. Due to the overwhelming demand for this program, we’d like to keep things as quiet as possible. Just think of it as a secret club! 😉

What are your thoughts?  Are you excited about SlingPlayer for Android or do you even care?  Is the SlingPlayer community really that big or is it a small but vocal group of users?

Does anyone really think SlingMedia wants to keep this under wraps?
