Slingbox

If SlingPlayer worked on a Mac, I would definitely get a Slingbox… I saw SlingPlayer in action at a coworker’s PC and it’s pretty darn cool!! I would definitely have to upgrade my HDD in my TiVo if I get a Slingbox though… heh…

Actually, I don’t see why TiVo can’t add better place-shifting features into the TiVo box itself. TiVoToGo isn’t good enough, it just downloads the content, but Slingbox allows streaming live content also, which definitely is cool. It should be relatively easy for TiVo to implement, my TiVo is already connected to the Internet via broadband. I guess TiVo mistakenly thought the DVR is the only thing a TiVo box should do, and they forgot to add cool innovations like Sling into their boxes… Now Sling probably got quite a large patent portfolio built up and TiVo would have to license it…
