Are you a TV junkie with a DVR brimming with programs? The Slingbox 350 can liberate those programs for viewing on mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops) away from home. It's not just DVR content, but live TV too. If there's a can't-miss game and you're away from home, the Slingbox will let you view your live TV lineup right on your phone by streaming that program over the Internet.
The $179 Slingbox 350 is an upgrade (four years in the making) from an earlier iteration. It adds 1080p HD streaming (mobile devices will receive a 720p stream) and a streamlined set up process. Slingbox also cut down the price of its mobile app - from $29.99 to $14.99 - which is required for mobile viewing on smartphones and tablets (laptop or computer viewing is free).
Reviewers were enthusiastic about the Slingbox, calling it a much more elegant solution for TV viewing than the apps provided by cable companies (which often limit mobile viewing to devices on home networks).
