slingbox streaming to TV rather than via PC

I have a slingbox connected at a property in the UK and watch the content on my laptop here in canada using their internet URL feed rather than the PC clientsoftware and it works fine . If I want to watch content on my widescreen TV I hook up the hdmi output from the laptop and it works fine too.

Is there any device out there that can work as a slingbox compatable web browser that I can just hook up to the internet and my TV and remove the need to have the PC connected to the TV? Browsers on PS3 , Wii & even my new LG smart TV updater ST600 doesnt have a compatable browser?
