DVRs are great, and anyone who has ever used one can't go back to the old way of watching TV. But if you have multiple TVs in your house, your DVR content is usually stuck on one of them. The solution? Hook up a Slingbox to the DVR and a SlingCatcher to another TV. Instantly you can watch and control your DVR and all its programming from that TV too--with no additional monthly fees.
Going away to college can be tough. You leave your family, friends, and local sports teams behind. With a SlingCatcher in your dorm room, you can connect to your Slingbox at home, and it's just like having a really, really long cable. You can hijack your parents' TV or watch shows and games together--virtually, of course. * HD Streaming from a Slingbox ProHD is not supported at this time.
