Discover Slingbox

Why We Started Sling Media

We started Sling Media to solve a long-frustrating problem in TV entertainment - missing your favourite shows and sports because you weren't in front of your living room TV. The inspiration for Slingbox came from the desire to watch live sports matches while traveling for business. That simple desire led us to create a suite of solutions tailored to you. With Slingbox, entertainment comes with you, to enjoy on your terms.

How Slingbox Works

Slingbox makes it simple to access your live and recorded shows, movies and sports. Whether in the home or on the go, with a Slingbox device connected at home and Slingplayer on your mobile device, you're in control of your TV experience.

Ways to Use Slingbox

We've seen Slingbox used in countless ways, from catching the game live to connecting friends overseas to each other and the entertainment they love. Check out all the ways you can benefit from the power of Sling. It's perfect for:
Sports fans and information junkies. Slingbox grants instant access to live sporting events and time-sensitive breaking national or local news.
TV enthusiasts. Slingbox adds powerful discovery tools to your living room TV screen and helps you find what you want to watch, when you want to watch it. You can even find all the games and view live sports scores and stats while you’re watching the game.
Frequent travelers or expats. Take your home TV with you anywhere with an Internet connection. No VPN or geoblocking. No streaming service or app can do that.
University students. No need to pay for another cable or satellite subscription where you are. Simply connect to your Slingbox at home from your laptop or mobile device, or use an Apple TV, Chromecast, or Roku to watch on another big screen TV.
Military personnel. Wherever you are deployed, you can stay connected to what's going on at home.
Mums and Dads on the go. Wouldn't you rather be watching the game while waiting for piano lessons to be done
