SlingCatcher delayed, still coming sometime this year

SlingCatcherIf you've been waiting patiently to get your hands on a SlingCatcher, the new set top box from the makers of the Slingbox, you might have to wait a little longer. Sling Media had planned to launch the box this quarter. Now Engadget reports that the release date has been pushed back until... well, it's not really clear when it'll be out now. But it should be available sometime in 2008.

The SlingCatcher works as sort of a reverse Slingbox. While the Slingbox lets you stream live and recorded video over the internet from any video source in your home, the SlingCatcher is a set top box that collects web video (including streams from your Slingbox) and shows it on your TV. In other words, it competes with the Apple TV and completes the circle of Slingdom. Plus it looks pretty cool and has a catchy name.
