GetConnected Inc. (GCi) plans to integrate its commerce engine into Sling Media’s SlingPlayer software, which is used in conjunction with the Slingbox.

The Slingbox placeshifts a single, live TV stream from a basic analog cable connection, digital cable box, satellite receiver, or media-enabled PC or DVR to any Internet-connected computer, PDA or smartphone.

The GCi platform will enable Slingbox customers to purchase digital content and services from local area cable, Internet and satellite providers during the installation process of the SlingPlayer software, GCi said.

The combined Sling Media and GCi solution will be integrated into Sling Media's SlingPlayer software in Q2 and will be available for both new and existing U.S. Slingbox customers, the companies said.
