Sling Media Slingbox Solo

Streams home AV sources to any broadband-connected Mac, Windows PC, Windows Mobile, or Palm Treo device in the world; no host PC or monthly charges required; simple, straightforward setup; excellent, easy-to-use software; pass-through AV jacks...

Cell phone/PDA viewing software costs extra; no built-in wireless networking support; monopolizes the attached device during viewing.

An evolutionary upgrade of past Slingbox models, the Slingbox Solo remains an excellent way to stream your home TV programming to an increasingly wide variety of broadband-connected computers and smartphones.

SlingBox Solo + iPhone SlingPlayer (Review)


I rarely begin a review by drawing final thoughts right off the bat, but the SlingBox Solo simply rocks. For those that haven't heard of SlingBox, it's a little set-top box that streams a residential Satellite or Cable TV feed over the internet for...

The latest entry in the Slingbox product line allows you to tune into your standard definition or high definition television shows from across the room or across the globe with a low hardware cost and no monthly fees.

In 2007, Sling Media was acquired by EchoStar/DISH Network. What this means for the future of SlingBox products is not yet clear. Certainly it would make sense to build the SlingBox technology right into a future version of the DISH DVR. But it's...

Review: SlingBox Solo


Some people are so attached to their TV programs that even the convenience of a DVR to record every episode of Dance Wars isn't enough. If you're a frequent traveler and absolutely must watch your home shows, then the SlingBox by Sling Media (now owned...

The picture quality looked mostly good on my widescreen laptop, and I didn't notice any performance difference when watching high definition or standard definition. The channel guide, which looks fine on my 50-inch TV at home, was almost impossible to...

Sling Media Slingbox SOLO


If you plan to use your Slingbox with an external set-top box only (like a satellite receiver or a Microsoft Windows Media Center), the recently launched Slingbox SOLO is the right device for you. Unlike the Slingbox PRO (see our earlier review here)...

Review: Slingbox Solo


Testing Since I didn't have any real HD devices, I went to a friend's place to attach the Slingbox Solo to his Xbox 360 with HD-DVD player. This was before I realized that HD content only gets streamed at 640x480 through the Slingbox. The Slingbox and...

The original Slingbox rocked our world, allowing us to catch up on all our favourite TV shows from wherever we were. And the new Pro excites us too, especially with its support for high-definition. The Pro also comes with the ability to control up to...
