For this week’s Engadget Interview, veteran journalist J.D. Lasica spoke with Sling Media CEO Blake Krikorian about the rollout of the Slingbox, its disruptive effects on Hollywood business models, the notions of place-shifting and personal broadcasting, and an announcement he’s making right here on Engadget about support for a new operating system.
This week I’ll be combining my questions with a few that our readers have posted on the site.
I saw those, and I was like, “Wow! Pretty impressive.”
Let’s start with the basics. How many employees do you have, where are you located, and when did Sling Media get started?
We have 30 to 40 folks. We’re headquartered in San Mateo in the Bay Area, as well as in Bangalore, India. We merged with DiTango a year ago.
