is a piece of equipment that allows users to watch live television wherever they go as long as they have an Internet connection. You simply hook the candy bar sized piece of equipment up to your broadband connection and television signal at home. You then have full control of your television over the Internet from anywhere in the world. The Slingbox also connects to other devices such as DVRs and TiVo.
The content companies are not happy about it though as Ars Technica writes. "Jim Goodmon, president of Capital Broadcasting, is surprised that Sling has not been sued out of business already. He claims that the issue does not involve recording but retransmission agreements, which Sling has not signed with anyone."
