    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely awesome! Bought this Slingbox with a lot of doubt. Wife and I travel a lot both in and outside the country and I missed watching my local news and Direct TV prerecorded TV shows. Without a hitch, Slingbox had me click on to my Direct TV DVR and watch whatever i wanted both live and prerecorded shows. I tried it out of state and also out of country. As long as you have an internet connection it will work. Absolutely awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This an awesome device! I've had the Slingbox 500 for well over a year. Setup properly, this works wonderfully for watching your TV provider's content anywhere you choose. It has eliminated my need for a second satellite box since I can merely broadcast the content to my other TV via the Roku app. As far as mobile, just get the app (iPhone and iPad, in my case and iPhone and iPad apps are separate but once done, well, there are no further fees), at a one time cost ... no ads, just the content one desires. When one is using it over a local LAN to a device connected to the local LAN, no data is used outside one's own network.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent on the go TV viewing I own the Slingbox Pro prior and upgraded to the 500. I was blown away by the features specifically the wireless connection as there's no more hassle of connecting an ethernet cable from the box to the router but the option is still available. Just got wireless cable and the 500 mates with it beautifully as I don't have to bother physically connecting a cable connector to the rear of the unit. The new Slingplayer is awesome as it has more controls to manipulate the 500. I can access the 500 on my Android phone and tablets, iPad, and on Windows tablet/laptop/desktop and getting the program on the Microsoft Store which is free by the way. I like to watch local programs when I'm travelling and when away from home. I have unlimited data on my cell phone and that's a plus. After the firmware update the setup was a breeze. There is a mention of the possibility of not being able to view programs using the HDMI cable exclusively because of protection rights but I connected mines thru aux cables instead.
