Slingbox- Your TV Coming to a PC Near You

SlingboxJUST HEARD ABOUT this great new tech toy from our friend Rob Sherman. It’s called a Slingbox (site no longer available), and with it, you can watch your home’s cable TV, satellite TV, or DVR programming from any internet-connected TV or cellphone anywhere in the world! Live! You can even change your channels.

Rob says the set up is not for the non-tech-savvy nor the faint-at-heart, but the videos we’ve watched on YouTube say it only takes about 15 minutes. Hey, I want one!

The Slingbox comes in 3 flavors, plus mobile.
