SlingBox Is Still The Ultimate “TV Everywhere” Device, And I’m Giving One Away

6a00d834518e1c69e20133f078eebc970b-800wi (UPDATE: the drawing is now closed) With all the fragmentation amongst device manufactures and content providers, I still think the one device to beat in this market is the SlingBox. With a Slingbox, you can access your full linear TV lineup wherever you go from your computer or mobile device. And with a dedicated SlingBox app for the iPad to be released shortly, for TV Everywhere,
nothing beats a Slingbox.

And thanks to the very generous folks at Sling Media I have another Slingbox PRO-HD unit to give away to a lucky reader of my blog. To be entered into the drawing, just leave one comment on this post with your full name and a valid email address and I’ll pick one lucky winner at random on Sept 15th. You must have a U.S. postal address as I will not ship these overseas. Congrats to Jim Doyle who won the last drawing. HUGE thanks to Sling Media for the boxes! Congrats to Steven M. from Washington who won the drawing.

    A free Slingbox? Awesome Dan! And thanks for all your work in the streaming/CDN space.

  • Hey Dan –
    I’been toying with the idea of upgrading my Dish system to the top of the line model that includes Slingbox functionality. Trouble is, I don’t travel much anymore! But it sure would be nice to be able to watch Mariners games whenever and wherever I want… as painful as that may sound…

  • Dan, Does the Sling Box work for streaming TV content from international locations? Count me in. Thanks

  • Vikash Harlalka

    I would love to get it!

  • Jim McNeill

    Sling one my way Dan!

  • Rico Camus

    While the Slingbox is a great device, users still have to contend with spotty internet connections when they are traveling. Its one thing to have a great connection at home, but you never know what is going to be available as you move around.

  • haydiv

    I still question the quality of Sling…they should adopt the adaptive protocol

  • COunt me in! Sounds Cool!

  • Steve Drucker

    Cool! Would love to have a shot at a Slingbox. Thanks for all your commentary, Dan.

    Dan, have you had a chance to try Slingcatcher? I waited for that kind of product for long but haven’t heard much good reviews so far. What’s your thought on that Sling product?

  • Huei

  • Great site! Love these giveaways.

  • Rick Kearns

    Whether Slingbox is commercially successful in 5 years from now or not, there is little doubt that it is one of those ‘sneaky’ technologies that plays a major role in the evolution of internet video and commercial broadcasting.

  • Rick Higbee

    I’ve been interested in a Sling Box for a while.

    I am looking forward to the IPad app. The curent IPhone app has poor picture quality but the slingbox works great from my lap top. I hope the new app will fix the problem as I use it daily.

    Haven’t had one of these for a while and was just doing some research to see if SlingBox was still the best option for TV on the go. Glad to hear that someone thinks it still is. Will have to put off buying one til after the 15th. 🙂

  • MIke

    Couldn’t agree more. The Slingbox is still the best product on the market and delivers great TV streams whenever we use them.
