Slingbox Solo


If you're not interested in watching everything from your Sky box to your DVD player while away from home, this is a cost-effective alternative to the Slingbox Pro

HD-compatible. Impressive video quality. Easy to use and cheaper than the Pro

Lacks flexibility. No Freeview tuner

Sling Media Slingbox Solo review


The original Slingbox rocked our world, allowing us to catch up on all our favourite TV shows from wherever we were. And the new Pro excites us too, especially with its support for high-definition. The Pro also comes with the ability to control up to...

Slingbox SOLO media streamer


The Slingbox SOLO from Sling Media is the company's entry-level offering for people that like the idea of being able to watch their own television anywhere around the world but without going for the full blown Slingbox PRO. So have corners been cut or...

Ability to watch your telly around the world, relatively simple to set up

Only connect one device, no Freeview tuner built-in, we did have networking issues

Although the set-up does require you to pay attention to make sure you've plugged everything in correctly and will leave even more wires dangling behind your TV stand, the results are worth the effort if you want to watch your TV elsewhere be it in a...

Getting to grips with the ‘baby' of the Slingbox range

Convenient ; Easy to set up ; Schedule recordings remotely

Ethernet only ; Works best with fast connections

Straightforward to use, as long as you have a good connection, this is a handy streaming device

Sling Media Slingbox Solo review


Hot off its acquisition by EchoStar , parent company of the Dish Network satellite service, Sling Media is back in the saddle with a new product, the Slingbox Solo. The latest Slingbox model is essentially a streamlined version of the Slingbox Pro ....

Streams home AV sources to any broadband-connected Mac, Windows PC, Windows Mobile, or Palm Treo device in the world; no host PC or monthly charges required; simple, straightforward setup; excellent, easy-to-use software; pass-through AV jacks...

Cell phone/PDA viewing software costs extra; no built-in wireless networking support; monopolizes the attached device during viewing.

An evolutionary upgrade of past Slingbox models, the Slingbox Solo remains an excellent way to stream your home TV programming to an increasingly wide variety of broadband-connected computers and smartphones.

SlingBox Solo + iPhone SlingPlayer (Review)


I rarely begin a review by drawing final thoughts right off the bat, but the SlingBox Solo simply rocks. For those that haven't heard of SlingBox, it's a little set-top box that streams a residential Satellite or Cable TV feed over the internet for...

Sling Media Slingbox SoloReview


The latest entry in the Slingbox product line allows you to tune into your standard definition or high definition television shows from across the room or across the globe with a low hardware cost and no monthly fees.

In 2007, Sling Media was acquired by EchoStar/DISH Network. What this means for the future of SlingBox products is not yet clear. Certainly it would make sense to build the SlingBox technology right into a future version of the DISH DVR. But it's...

Review: SlingBox Solo


Some people are so attached to their TV programs that even the convenience of a DVR to record every episode of Dance Wars isn't enough. If you're a frequent traveler and absolutely must watch your home shows, then the SlingBox by Sling Media (now owned...

The picture quality looked mostly good on my widescreen laptop, and I didn't notice any performance difference when watching high definition or standard definition. The channel guide, which looks fine on my 50-inch TV at home, was almost impossible to...
