Ok… I normally don’t do this, but I have to tell the world about the SlingBox. I purchased it from Radio Shack for $199 after a $50 rebate. (Actually, I also got an additional $50 mail-in rebate, but it’s not there anymore.)
Now, you might ask, what is a SlingBox? It is by far the coolest piece of technology that I have seen in a while. Basically, it allows you to stream your TV at home to a remote location and watch it via the Internet. The nice thing about this is that there are no fees to use it.
I’ve got mine streaming my DirecTV Tivo AND my Windows Media Center PC. Hooking it up was a breeze… literally 10 minutes after I opened the box I was watching it on my Office PC. How I missed this piece of cool tech is beyond me, but I now have one and if you like your Tivo/MCE like I do, get one of these and never miss anything again!
