Slingbox® 500
TV 2.0

You're already paying for cable services, so why not stream them all through a single interface and watch them on your phone, tablet, computers and other TVs? The Slingbox 500 lets you watch live and recorded shows, movies and sports. No extra cable subscription, no monthly fees.

Slingbox 500 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 662.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless. Returned it I bought the Sling box 500. It would not work for me. As per the advice from the support team I tried replacing my HDMI cables, and purchasing the splitter they said would make it work, still nothing. They blamed my internet service of which I have no problems with using any other devices. They blamed my cable provider. Now I am stuck with a splitter I can not return. I spent hours and hours on the phone with the support staff. A huge waste of my time that I will never get back. This box is a great idea but does not do what it says it can do!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ran into a software bug - how do I report it? I am stunned there is no channel to report software bugs .. One cannot use # 'pound/hash symbol' character in a WiFi password which is a legal special character...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy product if you want to watch on a pc Almost impossible to get to work on a windows pc. I am an above average user and it is such a poorly designed interface that trying to labor to get it to work properly is more effort than it is worth.'s ads seem to stream effortlessly! Imagine that. No tech support after 90 days. Don't waste your money and time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great... It works really great!! However Slingplayer needs improvements. Today we need Slingplayer Desktop Remote control and others and Slingplayer Web to watch in computers. Slingplayer for Kodi is not available yet (not official windows only is already available for Kodi). We should be able to use our Slingbox without Sling servers (direct access), to improve even connection speed and image qualityn and if Sling company will close in the future, we will loose our equipments.
