New Slingbox PRO HD Makes Cable Available Online


Sling Media recently announced that it will start selling the Slingbox PRO-HD. The new high-definition version will allow users to watch HD cable or satellite programs on their PCs via their internet or a home network. The cost should be around $300 when it hit the shelves.

This isn't your average cable box. This is for the true 'cableholic.' You have to be the type of person that can't live without your cable or satellite subscriptions away from home.

The new HD Slingbox can stream up to 1080i HD content (1920-by-1080-pixel resolution), to your computer at home or over the internet. The internet connection is only valuable if you have at least a 1.5 MB of data transfer capabilities. The new SlingPlayer desktop PC software gives Slingbox owners access to their cable and satellite subscription via an electronic programming guide. The Slingbox PRO-HD is available at slingmedia.com, Amazon.com and Buy.com.

Is the Slingbox for you? Is it practical or a waste of engineering time? As always we would like to know.
