I have been testing the Slingbox at home, in my office and on the road. In my tests, it worked exactly as advertised. At my office, about a dozen miles from home, I watched recorded episodes of “Charlie Rose” and “Desperate Housewives.” At an airport, I watched CNBC live on my laptop via a public Wi-Fi connection. And in a Boston hotel room, about 450 miles from home, I watched a live Washington Nationals baseball game unavailable in Red Sox country.
I’m excited about the Slingbox and I’ve posted about it before. Why don’t I have one yet? I’ve just been too busy this summer to screw around with it, but I certainly anticipate having one sometime in the fall.
