    How to buy Slingplayer Mobile for Android outside Market


      I have long awaited the new mobile player for android, but I cant buy it.

      Google has not opened the market here in Denmark for payed apps yet, so I can only see free apps.

      Is there a way to buy and download the player outside of Android Market??
