I love my slingbox. I use it all the time on my phone and my ipad. The only thing that is missing is the ability to stream it to another TV well. I currently stream it to my ipad and then use mirroring on Apply TV, but if there was an app for Apple TV that made it full screen would be so much better.

I bought this to watch programs off my DVR while away from the device. The playback is not the quality I thought it would be and most of the time is choppy and the sound is not with the picture. Sometimes it is virtually impossible to even watch the show I want because it is so bad. This happens with live TV as well. This item is not near the quality I expected, especially based on the price paid. I recommend you do something to remedy the problem

Comments about Sling Media® Slingbox™ 500 Network/Streaming Media Player:

I've been using my Slingbox 500 with my Apple TV, iPhone 5/iPad & Roku 3.The SlingBox 500 is the best thing to happen to TV on the go. I got the best steaming results using the Newest Apple Router.

Using for a long time...now upgrading.

By jadams

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Sling Media® Slingbox™ 500 Network/Streaming Media Player:

I bought this device over 10 years ago...now upgrading... It works good in most countries, the only country I have had problems with is China, they censor all internet activity. But, in most countries it works well. I have become dependent on Slingbox over the years! It would be nice if there was a bluetooth "remote control" device for controlling the slingbox remotely through your computer. As it is, you have to stand up and go to the computer to change channels...it would be great with a remote!

Woks as advertised!!

By POMERS

Comments about Sling Media® Slingbox™ 500 Network/Streaming Media Player:

Little tough to set up but tech support was outstanding. Thank you Melvin! When I read about Slingbox I just had to have one. Great easy to use software. Cool that it shows on screen the actual Time Warner remote so you don't have to learn a new one. I would recommend Slingbox to anyone that has moved out of the country, travels a lot or just has to have the latest, coolest electronic device. Thumbs way up!

Excellent part of the Connected Home

By Toto

from Seychelles

Comments about Sling Media® Slingbox™ 500 Network/Streaming Media Player:

Since I have been using slingbox it has really change the way I watch my favorite programs. It have even forced me to change my TV to a smartTV allowing me to connect to all my content feeds wirelessly. Only one downside of it so far is that only one device can watch contant at anyone time.....that's a real shame...hopefuly with the next upgrade we might be able to watch on multiple device at anyone time. I cannot see how they cannot do this for it the stream is multicast or changed later to multicast this could be easilly possible. Most STBs can do this these days..
