Sony LocationFree TV

Sony LocationFree TV review


Like SlingMedia's Slingbox, Sony too has a LocationFree device that allows you to watch your home television anywhere in the world as long as you've got a PSP and a Wi-Fi connection. So what's the difference, and which one should you opt for?...

Watch you home TV anywhere in the world, easy to set up

Definitely worth a closer look and a must if you are a PSP owner
