Bought the Slingbox here in the UK a few weeks ago. I’m impressed! Got the little baby connected to my Sky+ box so now have time-shifting and place shifting. You can’t beat that!
I know that our American colleagues in the USA have had the Slingbox for over a year, but now that I’ve had the chance to experience it I’m wowed over and needed to post the good news!
You may wish to look at Sony’s equivalent “LocationFree TV” but it does too little, too late and it’s just too expensive. I’d skip the Sony product if I were you and go straight to SlingMedia’s Slingbox.
