Will consumers watch their own recorded TV shows on their cell phones?

San Mateo start-up Sling Media thinks they will, and apparently so do its investors. The private company has just closed another “large” round of funding to help finance the distribution of its product, which enables people to watch shows they record on TiVo or other places on Internet-enabled cell phones.

We don’t know the exact amount, but have it on good authority it is a large round. We know they have raised about $15 million over past two years. So given the attention they’ve received so far, it is probably about time they raised more cash.

Update: Om says it is not a large round; it is a “monster round.”
