Sling Media :: What is it: So, let me get this straight, this thing streams my television signal from the TV in my basement to whatever PC i’m sitting in front of? Seriously?
The Slingbox is a compact and elegantly designed, state-of-the-art electronic device that connects to the back of your TV. It redirects, or “placeshifts,” the TV signal from your cable box, satellite receiver, or digital video recorder (DVR) to your computer or laptop of choice, no matter your location — so long as you have a high-speed Internet connection
So couldn’t I “sling” televised content to someone who couldn’t otherwise see it? And don’t tell me you couldn’t figure out a away to have more than one PC “catch” the content that was…slung?
I imagine some horrific intellectual property issues coming up here. Selling this is like saying, “Sure, I’ll strap some steaks to my back and run through the lions’ cage…”
