Using slingbox overseas? - October 10, 2013, 01:03 PM

Anyone use slingbox to watch tv overseas?

I assume I just have to connect it to a cable box here in the states, and have an internet connection wherever I am in the world, and I can watch my tv

right?

That's a good question, I can see them blocking it. But you could always then just bounce of a US proxy.


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

No clue, but I would love to hear someone's opinion of just using either Slingbox or a Vulkano to watch TV locally on your ipad (i.e. in your kitchen). Been thinking about getting one, but not sure if it is worth it.

A guy i know went to Turkey to play basketball overseas. He did this exact thing. He did have to use a US proxy, but it did work.

He just had a box on one of his parents TV's back home.. Said it worked decent.

My buddy has a Vulkano Lava and you download the app from the app store, and you can watch your cable TV on your iPad. Slingbox as well. Whatever is on your TV box is what you can see on your ipad, but you can change channels and etc with your iPhone/iPad. My friend loves his, but I was curious if anyone has a slingbox and how they compare the two.

Slingbox works fine, just depends on your internet connection
