Yes, have one and love it. I watch local TV
out of Tampa here in Birmingham via my high speed internet connection. I can also watch TV
at work in BHM
airport but sometimes have a problem with the wireless connection.
I know of a guy that lives in Japan and uses his slingbox to watch University of South Florida football game.
When I lived in Tampa and worked at TPA
we did not get local channels on the satellite TV
in the breakroom so I would connect to my sling box over the wireless connection and watch the Bucs games.
You can also travel with it and connect from any hotel that has high speed internet. Plus you can control your DVR with your slingbox. At least I can in Tampa with Brighthouse.
One more thing that i can think of that is funny, I can piss my wife off by logging on to my slingbox and changing the channel at home from anywhere in the world. This will ussally get me a cell call or text message telling me to leave the F$^%ing TV
Its a great thing to have if you have a good internet connection.
