The Slingbox Personal Broadcaster by Sling Media
What if you were able to watch live television wherever you go? The World Series in your cube. MSNBC breaking news at the coffeeshop. Your local news station halfway around the world. Lost in Hawaii. Emeril Live in your kitchen. Now what if we told you that you could do that without having to lug a television, a cable box, a satellite dish, or a subscription along with you? In fact, you don’t need anything besides your laptop.
That’s because back home, you have a Slingbox sitting on top of your television. The simple silver device looks suspiciously like a gigantic chocolate bar, but the technology inside is truly sweet. This award-winning gadget is a breakthrough device that enables you to watch and control your living room television programming from anywhere by turning any Internet-connected laptop or PC into a personal television.
In just four simple steps, the Slingbox is good to go.

It’s easy to connect to your Slingbox. Scroll down the list and select yours, then hit connect.
  • Connect the TV source to the Slingbox
  • Connect the Slingbox to the Internet.
  • Plug in the Slingbox power adapter.
  • Load the SlingPlayer software onto your PC.

You are now ready to view and control your TV programming via your Internet-connected desktop or laptop as if you were sitting in your living room, watching your TV source, and using its own remote control.
