    I own the Slingbox Pro prior and upgraded to the 500. I was blown away by the features specifically the wireless connection as there's no more hassle of connecting an ethernet cable from the box to the router but the option is still available. Just got wireless cable and the 500 mates with it beautifully as I don't have to bother physically connecting a cable connector to the rear of the unit. The new Slingplayer is awesome as it has more controls to manipulate the 500. I can access the 500 on my Android phone and tablets, iPad, and on Windows tablet/laptop/desktop and getting the program on the Microsoft Store which is free by the way. I like to watch local programs when I'm travelling and when away from home. I have unlimited data on my cell phone and that's a plus. After the firmware update the setup was a breeze. There is a mention of the possibility of not being able to view programs using the HDMI cable exclusively because of protection rights but I connected mines thru aux cables instead.

    I have been the owner of a slingbox for several years now. I have been living outside of the us for over 13 years now with very little access to US programming. My slingbox is connected to a directv receiver at my brother's house. My slingbox has enabled me to keep in touch with the world and record all my favorite programming. Not to mention provide me with a live feed to all my sports games. Yes recently there are other companies offering online software but they lag in time and some are not even legal. None of them provide me full access to all my live NY events and I can access my sling account without having to vpn in. I just upgraded to the Slingbox 500 and it has been working flawlessly for the past few weeks. My previous box needed to be restarted every so often. I also have access to my direct tv through both my iPhone and Galaxy Note, which I confess watch while stuck in traffic. I highly recommend it to anyone that is going to be away from home. For me it is indispensable!

    I bought this because I have a place in Hawaii that we use 3 months a year 1 month at a time. I do not want to pay cable tv but I do have internet. So this works well for my purpose. I get to watch all my sports teams along with everything else. I hdmi my notebook to a 42" LCD and the quality is pretty good. Let's see, I've had some problems so it's not a perfect setup. If my internet is slow then the quality suffers. If my internet at home is down, then so is Slingbox. Sometimes the slingbox unit needs to be reset so someone at home needs to do that. The unit will take over one tv so there could be fights between someone at home and you. Also last I checked the app costs about $15.00 per smart phone and tablet. I have one glitch where upon connecting, the video doesn't show unless I change the channel or press guide. But overall, a great item for my purpose. Not great for data plans if you are not grandfathered into one of those unlimited usage plans.

    I bought my first Slingbox (of many!!!) in 2008 and now have the best one, the Slingbox 500!!! My job required that I live full-time in BARBADOS (2008 to 2013), though my family stayed in North Carolina. Barbados television, even the televising of major events like the Olympics, was TERRIBLE and often did NOT even televise in Barbados. Baseball and footbal, as well, were not shown. TV shows were a decade behind current U.S. shows!! What to do!!!!! I was rescued from this horribleness by Slingbox!!! I watched everything!!!! All my favorite sports and tv shows!!! Slingbox saved me!!it was remarkable and I told everyone about it!! People in Barbados came to my home just to see my Slingbox and I converted many many people to it!!!Thank you for making my Barbados experience a great one by helping me connect to the world outside of that tiny little island!!!! Hurray for Slingbox!!! I use it today in NC and look forward to the latest updates and new devices!! I am forever sold on your product!!! Thank you!! Regards, Dave Forster

    It's one obstacle after another setting this thing up... First needing to reset password, then wifi issues, then it wouldn't play HDMI videos (component only), then connection not available. 300 dollar product is great once it actually begins working and monthly payment that's great once it actually works.

    A friend of ours in Denmark owned a Slingbox that he kept at his friend's house in Boston so that he could watch every kind of U.S. sports you can imagine. I thought it was a little bit silly until we bought a camper and started traveling all over the US during baseball season.... Of course it was impossible to get our team's games once we got outside of our area, but with the Slingbox, no problem! It has been great to have. We were also amazed one day when we got stuck away from home during one of the last America's Cup races. Unbelievably, we were able to connect to Slingbox from our iPad while moving down the highway! We thought we had to be someplace that had wireless, but that's not the case. Anyway, we have recommended it to many people. I also just want to say that Technical Support at Sling Media is excellent. I've had to call maybe three times -- once initially to help me hook it up, then a couple of times regarding a malfunctioning IR. In all three instances, the tech support representative was helpful and solved my problem.

    I am a huge soccer fan, When Champions League is on you want to see all the games. Slingbox makes this possible. I have one game on my TV, one on my Phone, and can have on on the Ipad as well. MY job takes me out of town weekly and having a slingbox with me allows me to watch all my stuff and take full advantage of my cable anywhere!

    We got our 500 model as a xmas gift from our children. This box has HD and wireless capability. It has worked flawlessly so far. My wife uses her iPad app every day to carry around the house and sunroom outside. Zero problems. We are now in Florida for a few weeks break from winter. Both her iPad app and my MacBook Air have worked perfectly. What a difference to have all our home DirectTV channels available everywhere we have gone. Hotel and resort channel lineups are so limited nowadays. We have watched our favorite sports teams and tv shows when we want using the home DVR while traveling. Installation went smoothly using the provided step by step instructions. No negatives so far. Highly recommend this product. One thing to note is that you can only use one device at a time with the a Slingbox. This is not a negative and makes complete sense from a Slingbox business perspective.

    First the staff is the most courteous and user friendly. They will call back and confirming what they did behind the scenes to make things work. They researched a hard to find Time Warner Code for the remote. Taught me the advanced set up tricks. I wish our health care insurers, medication suppliers, government agencies, cable companies and other electronic firms were run like this company for support and accessibility. Next I am in a hotel and the programming is awful. But thanks to Slingbox I can view anything on my Direct TV account since I selected that provider to pair with my sling instead of TWC. Instead of paying extra for movies, I have it all with my computer or mobile devices that can project with adapters onto the flat screen in the royom! Genius with no restrictions on content or copyright issues for movies that are recorded. Also can enjoy my pics and vids! Thanks
