    OT: Slingbox Good for Out of Stater?

    When I called my cable company to get FSN turned on so I could watch the game today, I asked about ESPN full court and they said they didn't offer it. As an out-of-stater, that would mean pretty much no basketball for me. What I'm wondering is about this slingbox product . . . could I put this on my parent's TV (in Ankeny) and watch whatever Cyclone stuff is on TV from out of state? Any reason this won't work? Any comments about this thing? Is there a different brand that is better?

    Yes, this will work. That is the point of the slingbox.

    Congrats on what will be the first of many many off topic threads this week.

    We send our local cox signal (regular slingbox for channels up to 70) to London person for viewing everyday. Note that the pro model does the higher channels like Versus and ESPNU. Just find a sugar daddy to tap and you will be in ho(g) heaven to watch more games and other special channels. Pay for View probably works also for the pro model.
