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...

Sling Media Slingbox SoloReview

 

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...

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...

Slingbox Solo

 

If you're not interested in watching everything from your Sky box to your DVD player while away from home, this is a cost-effective alternative to the Slingbox Pro

HD-compatible. Impressive video quality. Easy to use and cheaper than the Pro

Lacks flexibility. No Freeview tuner
