I use mine on the night stand when going to sleep. (My wife wont let me put a TV in hte bedroom)
Don't have one (yet - it's on my Christmas list!), but one key advantage for me over separate apps for Netflix and Hulu Plus is that when I am travelling overseas, Hulu, Netflix, HBO Go, etc, all block access based on my location. It's on those long trips that I would really like to have some local TV access (recorded or live).
If I buy it, it will be largely for that reason.
Also, even though the major networks have some full shows on their website or app for viewing, many are missing. Remote access to shows I've recorded, even when travelling within the U.S., will be great because of that gap.
I hope it works for you. As has been mentioned before one major downfall to using a Slingbox remotely is that the internet connections available in most hotels tend to suck. So even if you have a really good upload speed at home if the download speed at the hotel sucks the experience is going to be less then ideal. At it's worst the Slingbox will still transmit, but it's a smeared, pixelated mess that's barely watchable.
Sears has the Slingbox 500 for 179.99! These things are 299 ever where else. I just got one. :up:
Yes i have the Stream also.
It looks like they have the prices reversed. They are showing $299 for the Slingbox 350 and $179 for the Slingbox 500.
If you actually get a SLingbox 500 for $179 that will be a sweet deal.
Shows it was shipped!
Would a Slingbox work ok over wifi on a plane? I'm not sure of airplane wifi speeds.
It works over 3G speeds, so I'd say it would. It might not look great, but it should work.
