I recently discovered Sling Box. It's very affordable and it works anywhere in the world. You must have a strong Wi-Fi signal in your home and also where you will be watching television. You must already be subscribing to a satellite or cable provider. You can purchase a Sling Box at any big box retailer for around $150USD. There are several different models and I chose the M1. You will also need to purchase 1 HDMI cable, 2 component video cables (red, blue and green on both ends), and 2 audio cables (red and white on both ends). Set up if fairly simple if you have all these items and you follow my instructions. I tried following the instructions in the box, only to find out that it did not work. I researched online and have found the solution.
Here is a photo diagram of how to set up your television at home.
Now that you have it all set up, you can take your device anywhere with you and watch television. If you have a DVR at home, you will be able to watch anything that is on your DVR. You will be able to pause, fast-forward and record programs just like you do on your home television. All programming is live and in real time. You do not pay a monthly fee to use this service. If you are a sports fanatic like my husband, you will be able to watch all your favorite football games live as if you were sitting in your living room at home.
Your television at home does not need to be turned "ON". You will need to make sure the satellite box is always "ON". If you are away from home using the sling box player, whomever is at home will not be able to change the channel. If you have multiple televisions in your home, you may want to attach the sling box player to a television that is not used that often so it does not interfere with others watching television.
If you have a "rental" property, I do not recommend using this as your television provider. This is best used for someone that has a second home or someone who travels.
