Los Angeles – Sling Media, the developer of media "place-shifting" technology acquired a year ago by EchoStar for a reported $380 million, on Monday saw the departure of its two co-founders and a good portion of its top management, PaidContent reports. Company co-founders and brothers Blake and Jason Krikorian — Sling’s CEO and SVP of business development, respectively — along with president Jason Hirschhorn; chief creative officer Ben White; and VP of sales Greg Wilkes have all resigned from Sling.

Hirschhorn told PaidContent that the executives agreed to stay on for a year following the EchoStar acquisition and take the company through another Consumer Electronics Show, but, "Now it’s time for the entrepreneurs to move on."

Last week, the company introduced a new Slingbox set-top with an integrated digital video recorder, as well as a mobile iPhone application.
