When you travel, you can't take your big-screen TV on the road, and most of the time you can't drag your couch with you either. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss all of your favorite programs. Even though you can’t take your TV, Sling Media's Slingbox lets you take your TV shows. With the Slingbox and a laptop, you can watch anything you'd watch on your TV at home. And you can do it anywhere in the world as long as you have a broadband Internet connection.
How Portable is This Thing?
There’s no need to drag it along; the Slingbox itself stays at your home. On the road, you take your laptop to a broadband hot spot (your hotel's wireless access should do nicely), connect to your Slingbox over the internet, and then stream your TV shows to your laptop.
