SlingMedia and its associated Slingbox are synonymous with place-shifting TV programming. Connect a SlingBox into a satellite or cable TV box, and you can then view your cable or satellite feed from anywhere in the world. Whatever can be viewed in the living room can be viewed remotely. Jamie and Todd chat with Andy Panizza about the latest developments from SlingMedia.
The Slingbox M1 ($149) is the entry-level Slingbox and it brings Wi-Fi connectivity to the whole Slingbox range for the first time, winning it PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice. The Slingbox 500 ($249) introduced SlingTV which overlays program guides and additional information onto the home TV screen as well as providing place-shifting. Both models are available now.
