"Best Remote Player to Watch Live TV!"5.0 starson by tl2005
Pros: The Slingbox is streaming all Live TV shows from my Comcast cable box (Motorola DCT6412, which is a dual tuner HDTV DVR) to my Android mobile phone (Samsung Epic 4G, SPH-D700), so I can watch Jeremy Lin and Knicks games wherever I go. Linsanity! :)
Cons: It allows only ONE viewer to watch Live TV shows by kicking out other users from the Slingbox.
Summary:I have physically connected the Slingbox to my cable modem (Motorola SBG6580) and all Live TV shows are streamed to my mobile phone around-the-clock. I have also installed the free Android application "XFINITY TV" which provides the real-time Electronic Program Guide (EPG) and allows me to use my phone as a remote control to change channels on my cable box.

Updated on Mar 24, 2012Recently, I have also installed an application "SlingBox for iPhone" which is streaming Live TV shows to my iPad (namely, the first generation of iPad released two years ago) and now I am enjoying any TV shows on a "big" iPad screen wherever I go. FYI, I am a senior technologist who has worked for major Wall Street companies and there is no issue with the SlingBox connectivity as I can watch Live TV shows on my iPad, Android phone (Samsung Epic 4G), laptops, home computers, and the web.
