Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 591reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fried my cable box Connecting this up to my new Comcast Infinity X1 cable box and running through the setup steps resulted in the disabling of the HDMI output of my cable box. Luckily it had just been installed a week ago and installers were still in the building so they replaced my box for me. Returned this for a credit, not trying again. I had an old Slingbox ProHD wihch worked fine for a long time with old cable service, but it had died a while back so thought I'd try this one. So be careful out there... September 22, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Marathon It's one obstacle after another setting this thing up... First needing to reset password, then wifi issues, then it wouldn't play HDMI videos (component only), then connection not available. 300 dollar product is great once it actually begins working and monthly payment that's great once it actually works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Game Changer I am a huge soccer fan, When Champions League is on you want to see all the games. Slingbox makes this possible. I have one game on my TV, one on my Phone, and can have on on the Ipad as well. MY job takes me out of town weekly and having a slingbox with me allows me to watch all my stuff and take full advantage of my cable anywhere! May 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Product, but....... Been using the 500 for the better part of 3 years. Upgraded my laptop to Win 10 and worked great up until a few weeks ago. Can log in and everything is going great. But, 20 secs in, the browser crashes. Changed browser and still the same thing. Tried another browser, same thing. So, the only way to watch is via an iPad or iPhone right now. Was able to finally get the laptop to work but only by downloading Slingplayer from the Win store. Not ideal. March 24, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by unreliable luxury aint a luxury Such a shame. Great idea. When it works it is gold, but too often there are tech glitches. I would say over the last year 2 out of 3 times I have tried to use it there have been serious glitches including no sound,random blackouts, freezes, and a glitchy programming leading to it thinking no one is watching after thirty seconds. all of this makes this a very frustrating product which i cant recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by over a year now and is great. i can watch my cable anywhere i go, hd resolution November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent on the go TV viewing I own the Slingbox Pro prior and upgraded to the 500. I was blown away by the features specifically the wireless connection as there's no more hassle of connecting an ethernet cable from the box to the router but the option is still available. Just got wireless cable and the 500 mates with it beautifully as I don't have to bother physically connecting a cable connector to the rear of the unit. The new Slingplayer is awesome as it has more controls to manipulate the 500. I can access the 500 on my Android phone and tablets, iPad, and on Windows tablet/laptop/desktop and getting the program on the Microsoft Store which is free by the way. I like to watch local programs when I'm travelling and when away from home. I have unlimited data on my cell phone and that's a plus. After the firmware update the setup was a breeze. There is a mention of the possibility of not being able to view programs using the HDMI cable exclusively because of protection rights but I connected mines thru aux cables instead. October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slick, simple, complete I was fretting about paying for an extra TV service at our second home. This is the perfect solution. Fantastic hardware and the software setup had me up in less than 20 minutes. Fyi, I used the HDMI connections and have CAT5 ethernet, so I have very high quality on the input. So far, although this wasn't my primary use case, it is amazing to watch TV from our android phones and tablet. I can't wait for our upcoming trip to our second home to see how well it works 3,000 miles away, with a fast internect connection on the other end as well. Someday, though, I hope all we pay for is bandwidth - for phones, internet, TV without having to pay for these silly huge packages where we only watch 6-8 channels. The business model has to change, but for now the Slingbox is just what the doctor ordored. September 18, 2015
