Ever heard of Slingbox? http://www.slingbox.com/ Basically, you hook it up to your tv/tuner box and it streams the video on a network. With software to control the channel, this means you can watch your home tv from anywhere in the world. For me, I see two big advantages of this: 1. I'm single and I have only 1 HDTV but I have two computers. So I can carry a laptop into rooms where I don't have a cable box and watch tv from it. No need for another cable box (they are expensive). 2. Watching tv on my phone. Questions: 1. I'm not seeing anything about a monthly fee - am I correct in assuming there aren't any? 2. I don't see stand-alone devices to drive a tv, which would be nice to have: then I'm basically just multiplexing the tv signal for use in the house. Are there devices which can do such a thing? This would be more valuable than watching tv on my phone or PC.
