Sling Media: hefty $46m funding

Sling Media, maker of the Slingbox for place-shifting TV content to laptops, smartphones and PDAs, got $46.6m second round funding from Goldman Sachs, Liberty Media, EchoStar, Hearst and others.

That is a lot of money, and notably from a traditional media firm. It will probably mean: more products, more marketing, and possibly new deals.
