Various members of Sling Media’s top management, including several founders, have announced their departure from the company.

The move follows Echostar’s acquisition of Sling for USD $380 million in 2007.

Among those departing are co-founders Blake and Jason Krikorian, who are leaving their positions as CEO and SVP of business development, respectively.

Jason Hirschhorn and Ben White will also leave their posts as president and chief creative officer of the Sling Media Entertainment Group.

The vice president of sales, Greg Wilkes, is also to leave.

Their departures signal the completion of the transition following Echostar’s acquisition.

The Slingbox, developed by Sling Media, allows users to stream live or recorded TV from a set-top box to an Internet-connected computer or cellphone.

Recent announcements include an iPhone app and a new SlingPlayer for Mac HD that allows Slingbox PRO-HD users to stream HD content to a Mac desktop or notebook computer.

The service works in conjunction with the web-based software.
