I was fretting about paying for an extra TV service at our second home. This is the perfect solution. Fantastic hardware and the software setup had me up in less than 20 minutes. Fyi, I used the HDMI connections and have CAT5 ethernet, so I have very...

VERY EASY setup, couldn't have been simplier!!!

 

I bought the Slingbox 500 and was amazed how easy it was to set up compared to problems I've had over the years with my old Slingbox Pro. I loved the on screen set up guide once all of the connections were made and the full HDMI connections are great...

Great potential if support was better

 

I bought a Slingbox 500. A large sticker on the box says free Sling TV. I cancelled a trial account I had with my FireStick. There is no slingTV just my own stuff from my TV sat. service. I cannot find any help in forums or support. I have followed all...

Great product!

 

I just added my second Slingbox 500. I use it to watch TV in my office, in my vacation home, on the road in hotels and to stream in my home to TVs with Roku or AppleTV so I don't have to pay a monthly fee for extra cable boxes.
