The Slingbox is a revolutionary piece of equipment that connects to the back of your TV and then redirects (“placeshifts”) the signal from your cable box, satellite receiver, or PVR to your computer or laptop of choice.

It doesn’t matter where you are, away from your TV signal (anywhere in the World) the Slingbox will direct the signal. However – you do obviously need a high-speed Internet connection.

Through your laptop or device you then use Slingplayer to watch and control your Slingbox. It features an array of innovative features and controls, including a Favourites Bar, customisable remote controls, and the best streaming video money can buy.


The SlingPlayer is compatible on most computers including Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.4.

If you were to paint this thing gold, someone would think you’re stashing a bullion bar behind your TV set. Fortunately, whilst it might look like a bullion bar – it doesn’t cost the price of one. It retails for around £180 ($444 Aus).

I think I might buy one 🙂

Anyone used one of these yet?

  1. yep – we use them at Ripe TV to check out the different cable feeds in different parts of the US. Ripe is up on different cable providers so the Slingbox allows us to dial into those areas and check that everything is hunky-dory (no missing shows, quality is good etc). Nice bit of kit – lot of great features.
