Do you love watching TV, but just don’t have the time for it? Maybe you are always working or traveling and would like to watch the news, weather, or stock tickers once in a while? For me, as a computer geek extraordinaire, I’m always on the computer and like flipping to the TV to catch TechTV and news that preview new product launches and events.
I have set up the Slingbox so that I may watch TV on my computer at work. Essentially, my home TV and cable are set up with equipment that transmits the cable signal through the Internet to my office computer. There is even a high definition adapter that is plugged into my home TV so my office computer is HD, or high def! It works like a charm. We’ve also set up this solution for our clients who are road warriors, day traders, and general enthusiasts. We have heard rave reviews.
I’m even thinking of going an extra step and connecting an office computer to one of our large flat screens so that it may act as a TV for the entire office. This would be a great way to alleviate the TV cable expense for the office while everybody may watch or listen to the news or sports in the background. Basically, I’ll have a lot more friends if this works out! 🙂
The Slingbox may also be set up for mobile devices, such as Treos and other handhelds. This product is definitely a winner!
