In the last couple months, we switched from DirecTV to the DISH Network. Other than a better monthly rate, we were really intrigued by the Slingbox. (Except for the name. I hate the name - it makes me think of that movie Slingblade from the 90's.)
The Slingbox allows us to watch things we've recorded on our DVR from our iPhones and iPad while we're away from home. How cool is that? I can hand my phone to Lydia in Starbucks and she can watch the latest Max & Ruby while I catch up with a friend. Bo can travel on work, and still watch his favorite shows when he has some down time. It truly is a fantastic feature that I realize we've spoiled ourselves with!
The funny thing is that I'm not a huge TV-watcher. But, I love being able to watch it completely on my schedule. The DVR made that possible in the past, but this new feature makes it possible when I'm away from home as well. I'm sold!
