|Slingbox - your very own TV seen anywhere - amazing!||
Watch and control your own TV from the next room or from the other side of the world!
A truly great invention for motorcaravanners who are always struggling to get their favourite BBC and ITV programmes when away in Europe in the far south or even far north or west - and all without a monster dish. The amazing Slingbox allows you to watch your own live TV, via the Internet on your computer or mobile phone. So now you can enjoy your favourite programmes or sporting events wherever you are, or maybe like us you sometimes want to access BBC or SKY interactive weather? Slingbox works with Sky, Freeview, Cable, DVD, HD, etc., even Home Theatre. The idea is quite simple, the Slingbox connects your TV receiver to your internet router so you can log in to your Slingbox across the internet and control your receiver just as if you were relaxing in your own lounge with remote in hand!
Free Viewing: Once purchased there are no subscriptions and no monthly fees to pay - so on normal broadband there's no extra cost at all, you could watch for free upstairs or in the garden via your wireless broadband. The only cost when travelling would be your mobile charges which could be zero if you have an inclusive package or possibly per Mb or per day when 'roaming'. My own Vodaphone deal gives me included access in the UK and pretty much unlimited access abroad once I've paid Voda's 24 hour login fee - the trick plainly being to arrange to check your emails, surf, and watch TV in batches - over one 24 hour period!
Technology: SlingStream™ is the groundbreaking technology within your Slingbox that dynamically adjusts your video quality to provide the best possible viewing experience. It functions by taking into account a variety of factors, including network bandwidth, SlingPlayer device characteristics, video content, and the type of video input. Using patent pending algorithms, SlingStream automatically adjusts compression level, video bit rate, frame rate, and other settings to create a quality video experience. And SlingStream works regardless of the connection type, whether it's LAN, Internet, or even wireless from your mobile phone.
No dish, no footprint issues, no monthly fees, great quality and BBC/ITV/Sky/Cable anywhere in the world!

Easy and automatic setup in most cases and good on-line and telephone support. I had SKY on my laptop at home within minutes of opening the box but I needed to follow a manual set-up guide for my BTHomehub router which refused to auto-configure for remote access. Slingmedia support promptly emailed me a link to the instructions when asked by email. Excellent product, excellent service. Buy Below >>>

Slinglink & Networking: These units can be used quite independently to create a simple 85 Mbps Ethernet network in your home or office without running network cables all over the place. One unit connected with a short Cat 5/6 cable to your main PC or Server or Switch or Hub or Router will act as the 'master', the second unit will then be a network access point for you to connect another PC, Laptop, Printer, etc., via another short Cat 5 cable. Buy a second pair and you can then use each of these to connect another item to the same network. The single port is appropriate because these are to connect single items just where they are plugged in without lots of long trailing cables. The network is actually connected via signals sent along normal mains electricity wires - all very clever, very reliable, and completely plug & play. We use them ourselves having found wireless a bit flaky in some parts of our premises.
